  2. Sticky: Arizona and New Mexico: 25 Scenic Side Trips is a big winner!

    Seeing my favorite southwestern road trips published in the form of a beautiful book was one heck of a thrill--but I just got an even bigger thrill! My book--our book--knocked 'em dead at the annual...
  3. Sticky: For me, it was mostly a question of making do...

    For me, it was mostly a question of making do with what I had available: namely, a Jeep, a tent, and a limited budget. I didn't have any delusions about my lack of stamina, so I knew going into it...

  5. Sticky: I'm really glad you guys enjoyed my account,...

    I'm really glad you guys enjoyed my account, especially so if you found some inspiration in it. Getting up and "out there" before sunrise is one of my favorite tricks, and as long as the weather...
  6. Sticky: From a Bryce Canyon Sunrise to the end of the road!

    Day 57: Tuesday, August 18th

    I got up at dawn and drove straight to Bryce Canyon National Park, sailing right past the gate, which wasn’t manned at that early hour. That didn’t really matter for...
  7. Sticky: Utah!

    Day 56: Monday, August 17th

    I got up relatively early, and rearranged all the gear in the Jeep, tossing trash and stowing away all the maps and brochures and assorted memorabilia from all the...
  8. Sticky: Becoming an old goat is something everybody...

    Becoming an old goat is something everybody should aspire to! (Especially when you consider the alternative ;-)

    I realized that I neglected to include ANY usable information about our 5 hour drive...
  9. Sticky: Buffalo Sunrise

    Day 55: Sunday, August 16th

    I slept very poorly, so I was wide awake long before dawn; the whole notion of climbing out of my warm sleeping bag and getting dressed at that ungodly hour was another...
  10. Sticky: Mark: They really ought to develop a toggle...

    Mark:

    They really ought to develop a toggle that would allow folks to select their season when using mapping software, or perhaps an override for seasonal road closures. Failing that, I reckon the...
  11. Sticky: Mark: All the roads described in this post...

    Mark:

    All the roads described in this post about the Tetons can be found on the map that's included with the official National Park Service brochure for Grand Teton National Park, available at the...
  12. Sticky: The Grand Tetons

    Day 54: Saturday, August 15th

    We woke up to partly cloudy skies and a glorious view of Jackson Lake. The jagged ridge of the Teton Range was lit by the rising sun, with wispy remnants of the...
  13. Sticky: Donna was right, and I was wrong!

    This very lengthy RoadTrip Field Report is finally nearing conclusion, but before I finish it, I want to back up for just a second and correct a factual inaccuracy. In post #10 of the thread, our...
  14. Sticky: Thanks! I had plenty to choose from. I kept a log...

    Thanks! I had plenty to choose from. I kept a log of the photos I took on this trip, and on that one day alone, I fired off no less than 747 frames. I always bracket my exposures when the light is...
  15. Sticky: Yellowstone: South Loop (It's all about the Geysers, baby!)

    Day 53: Friday, August 14th

    We climbed out of our warm(ish) sleeping bags into our ice box of a tent, and from the tent straight into what started as a cold and gloomy day. We broke everything...
  16. Sticky: Yellowstone: the north loop of America’s premiere National Park!

    Day 52: Thursday, August 13th

    We got an early start out of Helena, and made short work of the drive south to West Yellowstone: I-15 to MT-69, MT-69 to MT-2, and MT-2 to US 287, which took us on to...
  17. Sticky: On to Montana, and Glacier National Park (aka, the Great Smoky Mountains)

    Day 51: Wednesday, August 12th

    The next morning, we retraced our route on AB-5 from Lethbridge southwest as far as Cardston, then we switched to AB-2, and drove due south to the U.S border, just...

    Hi, Donna!

    That would be a pretty good trick. (Especially if you could jump back in time as well!) I really loved that Giant Cedars boardwalk in Glacier N.P., and it's such an organic structure;...
  20. Sticky: Pretty amazing place!

    Pretty amazing place!
  21. Sticky: Yahoo for Yoho

    Day 47: Saturday, August 8th

    We considered just leaving the tent set up at the Kerkeslin campground, since we weren’t sure how hard it would be to find another camping spot when we got closer to...
  22. Sticky: Jazzed about Jasper!

    Day 45: Thursday, August 6th

    I talked the folks at the Super 8 into letting me stay in my room well past their 11 AM checkout, since Carl’s plane wasn’t due until 3:00 (or later). They were quite...
  23. Sticky: Keith: The Choice Hotels and the Super 8's in...

    Keith:

    The Choice Hotels and the Super 8's in Alaska offer essentially the same amenities as their counterparts in the lower 48. The only real difference is the price of the rooms, particularly in...
  24. Sticky: Dawson City to Edmonton

    Day 43: Tuesday, August 4th

    The next morning, I had the free breakfast offered by the hotel—the all-too familiar business travelers special: mass produced scrambled eggs from a carton, weird...
  25. Sticky: The Alaska Highway in reverse

    Day 40: Saturday, August 1st

    Before leaving Whitehorse, I studied my maps and my copy of the most recent edition of The Milepost, a comprehensive mile-by-mile guide to the Alaska Highway and all...
