  1. Your Route Options

    Let's just run down the two best all-Interstate options you have. BTW, I used Groton as your starting point.

    1) Shortest: I-95 to Rye NY, I-287 around NYC, I-80 through PA and OH where it merges...
  2. Once is Not Always

    I would be VERY hesitant to use anecdotal stories (e.g.: "I tried doing this pass last year...Perhaps I’m just a baby about driving THOSE mountains in winter... but they’re scary.") That's one...

    Scenic Drives to/from New York

    Since the first 'target' you listed was New York (presumably NYC) let's start there. There are certainly several scenic options, enough that you could take different routes out and back. So let's...

    We usually don't disagree much with each other, but I'm going to take issue with Dave here a bit. With the route you've laid out, the fact that you "don't [want to] have to kill it each day", and...
  5. Sticky: Real Name(s)

    Mark, Just for everyone's edification, my name is not Buck Daniels. Daniel is my real first name; Buck is my nickname; my last name is Janes.

  6. Sticky: A Good Time Was Had by All

    I'll second the kudos. Great group that led to a very pleasant, entertaining, and informative way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon. Glad to finally 'meet' you all and learn the faces...

    One Possibility

    Since the roads are going to be a bit slower on your first day (US-2/MT-206/MT-35/MT-83/MT-200/MT-141/US-12) than on your second day (I-90/MT-359/US-287/US-191), I'd suggest that you overnight a...

    Paths and Their Lengths

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    If you want this trip to be a bit 'off the beaten path' that's possible of course. You can certainly choose a 'southern' route if you like, that's what...
  9. Cart Before the Horse?

    While I thoroughly understand Michael's and noFan's advice on booking campsites early, that is not the thing I would do first. Doing so would mean you're locking yourself into a schedule before you...
  10. Yes and No

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    As you note in your post, "it's too much to ask" for us to plan your whole itinerary. Not because of the effort on our part, but because this is your...

    I'd be more than glad to join a virtual 'party' to celebrate the founding of RTA! I agree that sharing stories about any memorable RoadTrips we've taken would be a welcome conversation, as...

    OK, Then

    None of the roads you'll see on this trip come close to the kinds of roads you've described around your hometown. (I've driven both.) Indeed, there's only one part of your trip that's even 'hilly',...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Actually, for all your questions, you are father along in your planning than most of our first time posters. You've got a basic plan; your time allotted...

    Mix and Match

    As Michael noted, you're going to have to make some hard choices given your competing goals. But here's one thing to keep in mind. most Interstates were built to, and still do, run parallel to...

    A Few Things

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Much as we'd like to be, and as much as we are collectively, it is simply impossible for us to be familiar with all the roads in America at every time...
  16. Another Alternate Alternative

    I'm glad you're getting other opinions on this. If I were in your shoes, I would probably be looking to continue east from the Black Canyon of the Gunnison through Pueblo and or Colorado Springs to...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The two possible routes you noted are roughly equal in both length and driving time. The decision on which one to use should be made so as to address...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    First and foremost: The beauty of a RoadTrip is that you can customize it to be exactly what you want it to be. Personally, I'd do this a lot...
  19. Thread: No Snow

    by AZBuck

    That Fourth Dimension

    As Dave pointed out, and I'm just reiterating, it's not the route (North/South/Elevation) that will allow you to avoid mountains and snow, it's the fourth dimension, time, that will allow you to do...
  20. Lots of Possibilities, But One Big Problem

    This is the type of trip, especially with wanting the kids to have some sort of new adventure each day, that calls for a 'loop' trip rather than one in which you go somewhere and take the same route...
  21. In That Case....

    Since none of the suggestions for places to see on the southern half of your inland, scenic leg appeal to you, then I'd just do the northern part, the Mohawk Trail and the Delaware Water Gap and then...
  22. Keeping It Doable

    Thank you for taking my secondary advice to heart and now making this an iterative process. The new info you've given should help shore things up a bit more. My main concern at this point is that...
  23. What Else...?

    You say that many of my earlier suggestions "have cropped up on [y]our radar". As I pointed out, we'd need to know what else, either specifically or generally, is on your radar before we can continue...
  24. A Basic Driving Option

    I had hoped, when I sat down to have a look at how best for you to fulfill your travel wishes, to find and suggest some sort of 'figure 8' trip that would incorporate both urban and rural driving on...

    As long as we're on the topic of drive options for your new vehicle, I will pass along a bit of hard-earned knowledge. For many years, I lived in northern New England where I was the entire night...
