    We were trying to view Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, 3 years ago - blocked by smoke from Canada wildfires. It was sad.

    Welcome to RTA!

    It's around 875 miles, so if you wanted to do the "bulk of the driving" on the first day and still do it safely, I wouldn't go more than 550 miles. That's pretty much a "work...

    Towing a trailer, I wouldn't want to take CA-36. It is a favorite of logging trucks who do not necessarily drive the speed limit (going up or down or around those curves).

    AZBuck, I think they're camping in an RV.

    You can do similar, though - if you want private campgrounds, you just search "RV parks near (where ever). If you want public campgrounds, some will...

    Hi, welcome to RTA!

    Even an RPod can seriously compromise a pick-up. Are you sure you've got enough truck for your trailer? My husband and I had a full-size pickup that used to struggle with 6%...

    Welcome to RTA!

    At 2900 miles (I calculated from Dover), you are looking at 5 days of 550 miles. Unfortunately, this means you probably won't have time for long sight-seeing anyway. You may be...
