    Welcome back to the RTA Forum!

    Most of the previous advice you were given still applies to this trip. In terms of general advice to get more out of your time on this forum, I can offer two things....
  2. I know you're planning on living in the trailer...

    I know you're planning on living in the trailer for at least the short term, but be aware RVs are not moving vans and despite their fairly large size, can store far less stuff than you probably...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    The good news is that thousands of people drive from coast to coast every day of the year, including in winter, and including across the northern tier of the country.

    Now we just need to know your siblings real first names, so we can win your nieces and nephews graduation money!

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    There's no one-sized fits all answer to your questions, but we can offer some basic guidelines for you.

    The first question, will this be the first time using the...
  6. Sticky: 25 years is impressive, although it's perhaps...

    25 years is impressive, although it's perhaps more amazing to me to think I've been on this site now for almost 20 years. I know I first signed on sometime in 2002. I remember back in those days it...

    A couple more places that would fit your interests.

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland really is a good stop, and you'll find plenty of R&B are part of Rock's history.

    There is also a...
  8. Welcome to the RTA Forum! The plan you've...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    The plan you've started with is certainly feasible and you've already got the foundation for a good trip.

    There is certainly plenty to see between NYC and Chicago -...
  9. Welcome to the RTA Forum! You've got some...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You've got some contradictory goals. You want to take slower roads that go through small towns, you want to see the sites in the Black Hills, and yet you don't want to...

    I-5 to US-97 at Weed really is the most logical and direct route to take. It appears google is telling you to take CA-299/CA-139 because I-5 and US-97 are currently closed because of snow.

    As...

    In addition to Buck's advice, I think there's a couple things you should also keep in mind.

    One is about the travel time estimates of online mapping programs. You mentioned aiming for Gallup and...

    I agree with both Dave and Buck.

    Doing a loop out of Denver is likely to save a lot of money, especially with car rental and really wouldn't take any more time.

    I also agree than 9 days for...
  13. Welcome to the RTA Forum! I know you said you...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I know you said you aren't interested in traveling by train, but the trip you've laid out really does lend itself to do much better to traveling by train. The Boston-DC...

    A couple things here. Unless you're actually going to be doing off-road driving, where you need a 4WD-Lo, then AWD is actually the better choice. AWD is basically intelligent 4WD, where it engages...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    While this seems like such a simple question, there really isn't a one size fits all answers. So much of it depends upon personal taste, budget and how you'll...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    How much time do you have for the trip, and do you have any goals other than seeing the National Parks of Utah?

    As just a very base idea, I'd plan to do some kind of...
  17. It depends upon specifically where you're going...

    It depends upon specifically where you're going in MN, but assuming it's the Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area, I would skip using I-90 at all and instead take I-80 all the way to Iowa and shoot up...
  18. Welcome to the RTA Forum! I-80 is almost...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I-80 is almost certainly your best bet, although to be honest, Tahoe would be the part I would be least concerned about. You should be able to see the forecast over...

    I have to agree with what others have posted. Despite COVID, it seems like an airplane is really your safest option here. While it's not an absolute, airplanes do seem to be a relatively low...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    If you're just looking at a scenic drive, perhaps you could make your way down the Mississippi River down to Natchez MS, and then make your way back by following the...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I think you have your routes/descriptions reversed, but the first list of highways (I-81/I-40, etc), that would take you through VA and TN, is about 100 miles shorter and...

    It sounds like you want to avoid snow mostly because you don't have experience with it, but as others have mentioned, you really should be ready for the possibility of it pretty much anywhere past...
  23. Dallas or Houston

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Are you planning to start from Dallas or Houston - because you say Houston in the body of your post, but you put Dallas in the title and referenced 1700 miles, which...
  24. If I were you, I would not prebook rooms,...

    If I were you, I would not prebook rooms, especially on the first night where you have the largest chance to see traffic or weather issues. New Years day isn't a peak time for motels, so you're not...
  25. Welcome to the RTA Forum! As far as routes,...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    As far as routes, personally would take I-40 one way and I-10 the other, because the distance isn't much different. Going along the border itself wouldn't be a concern,...
