  1. Sticky: Poll: Yosemite have said it will not open this weekend...

    Yosemite have said it will not open this weekend but that does not imply it will open soon after. Work continuing around Olmstead point in particular which suggest an avalanche risk remains. Watch...
  2. As the posts above have mentioned, we really need...

    As the posts above have mentioned, we really need much more to go on to be of meaningful help rather than throwing a list of thousands of options out there. As well as telling us more of your...
  3. Sticky: Not quite done.

    Yeah Oatman and the drive over Sitgreave pass is pretty cool !



    As I always say to Lezli, "When I say I will do a job I will do it. There is no need to remind me every six months ! " Haha....
  4. You should be fine.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You could possibly make the trip in 3 days so having 6 days available is great and gives you time for some sight seeing and taking it steady. You won't have...
  5. Sticky: And now the end is near.

    Day 18. March 6th.

    We had a great nights sleep, it was so peaceful and the temperature was just perfect. Although today will be our last day spent in the RV, we are looking forward to what lay...
  6. Sticky: Poll: Same as always.

    Nothing has changed really. Perhaps they are referring to routine maintenance the same as other roads in the park that need repair after a winter season. Once the road is open to traffic and it's...

    5 nights is ideal.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    Ideally you should really take 5 nights and the best part of 6 days and that's what we would normally recommend. On multi day trips you should stick to 550...
  8. Amazing journey ahead.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    This sounds like the start of an amazing journey and if you wish to update us from time to time with news of your travels in this thread, that would be great....
  9. Starting point.

    Hi RushyBoy and welcome to the RTA forums !



    They have 8 days to get there (including 2 day stay in Austin) and 9 days to get back is how I read it.

    You won't have a lot of spare time as...

    Grand canyon ?

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    It's difficult to give advice when we are only seeing a part of the picture. For me an obvious choice would be to head south on US89 to the Grand canyon, but...
  11. Looking rushed through the National parks.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    When you divide the mileage by the days it would suggest your trip is doable, but with so many stops you will find you won't have enough time to enjoy the...
  12. Sticky: Poll: Another go at it.

    As my first prediction passes by I am going to throw another dart myself and predict that the pass will open on June 22nd at 8am.

    Dave.
  13. Sticky: More '66 to Joshua Tree.

    Day 17. March 5th

    I can understand the temptation to have a couple of days relaxing by the pool before flying home, and with just 2 more days before the day we fly, it would be easy to take a...
  14. A wonderful trip !

    Welcome to the RTA forums and thanks for the kudos.

    I totally agree with the above, head to Grand canyon and then to Vegas, it will save you time and having to double back on yourselves. It...
  15. So many options.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You could possibly drive between the City's in a day, so having a week gives you time to explore a little, but there are many great options. After visiting...

    Flaming Gorge is lovely and it's a lovely route to drive. WY-530 down the west side of the Gorge is a pretty cool.
  17. That's good news, you want to enjoy Tioga pass...

    That's good news, you want to enjoy Tioga pass and just wouldn't have the time if you were attempting to get into Yosemite valley. There is an RV site in Lee Vining near to Mono Lake as well, I have...

    You will find stores along the way. There's a Walmart just west of Hurricane, Family Dollar in Tonopah and local stores in Springdale and Lee Vining plus a lot of gas stations and other small towns...
  19. Sticky: Poll: A bit of a breakthrough.

    This week saw the Yosemite and Mono county crews meet as they have plowed the entire pass to at least one lane wide. There remains a high risk avalanche risk at Olmstead point that needs monitoring...
  20. Unpredictable.

    As you understand, weather is totally unpredictable so far in advance of your trip but Sept and Oct can be a lovely time of year to travel. It doesn't come without some risk of disruption due to...

    Some clarity.

    Hello and welcome to RTA !

    I'm sorry to say that your thinking has been clouded by some electronic mapping program that has no idea of human needs such as sleep and food and inconveniences such as...
  22. Sticky: Gettin' our kicks on '66

    Day 16 cont..........

    With 260 miles still to cover we have to make use of the Interstate, which is something I rarely do, but it's only 25 miles along I-40 before we take a detour into Holbrook...

    Haha. I'm sure it's a term recognised globally. Unless the mother in law or vicar is in the vehicle then we say "Oh bother". ;-)



    The size and quality of the campground sites in the USA is...

    Try advanced map.

    You may find that the 'Advanced map' has better options for you where you can further limit the mileage off of your route for attractions and click on areas of the map where the attractions you are...

    I was actually suggesting you get off the Interstate to explore and that there are other options. I have recently done the route described by Buck through Petrified forest NP and down to US60 but...
