  1. “Time is so strange, and life is twice as strange.”

    The Ray Bradbury quote above sums up what Michael said. Your trip is going to be about time and timing at least as much or more than it's going to be about weather and route. First and foremost...

    More to Safety than Route

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Yes, most long driving trips will offer multiple possible routes, and your is no exception. But the important part of that last sentence is just three...

    That's Entirely up to You.

    What town to stay in, what motel to sleep in, what diner to eat in - Those are all matters of personal choice. Just as you found this site, you can find sites that get down to the nitty gritty level...

    ...and Now for Something Completely Different

    If you plan to spend significant time in southern Utah seeing a bit of the Mighty Five, you can also visit the Grand Canyon and get quite a different feel for it than the usual visitor. That's...

    Personally....

    I have found that the best things to bring with me (besides a credit card and a fair bit of cash) is simply the willingness to have an adventure. Yes, if all you do is sit in the car and drive mile...

    Be Aware

    Just for the record, there is NO US-66 anymore. It was decommissioned in 1985. That was because most of it had been physically replaced by I-55, I-44 and I-40. In those few places where the old...

    No, I Don't

    If you need 100% absolute certainty that you will see NO adverse weather on a 2,000 mile trip, you're not going to get it, ever, anywhere. As I mentioned, the Interstates are kept open if at all...

    What, Me Worry?

    Not much has really changed about RoadTripping in the intervening 40 or so years since your last significant drive. The roads, attractions, restaurants and lodging choices have gotten a little bit...

    Fun Requires Time

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Let's cut right to the chase. If you can't leave Denver until the morning of the 28th and have to be in Sarasota by the evening of the first, then you...

    South of St. Louis

    Remember that the Great River Road is not single road but a network of roads. That said, I could not find a decent map on-line to point you to, but the opening page of the link I gave you earlier has...

    Agreed - Two (at least) Very Nice Roads

    I whole-heartedly agree with Michael's suggestion, but be aware that the scenic road(s) we recommend will not be the first suggestion of any computer-based mapping algorithm, including your GPS'. You...
  12. FOUR Days

    As others have pointed out, there is simply no way you're going to be able physically, let alone safely, drive to San Jose in two days. In fact, starting from Houston and going through Dallas, you're...
  13. Not Required

    New Jersey changed the EZPass requirement in mid-May and will now take cash at toll booths. The Delaware Memorial Bridge made the same change at the same time. The Delaware Turnpike's website says...
  14. I-95 Overnight Stops

    If you take the I-95 (more or less) routing, then a good target for your first night might be the Days Inn in Benson NC at 513 miles from NYC. A little bit farther down the road, there's a Days Inn...
  15. Reality and the "Heart of the Beast"

    Two things need to be established from the get go. First and foremost, you should NOT plan on spending your first night in South Carolina. Even if you lived in New York City, near an entrance to the...
  16. Rapid City

    In my opinion, one of the most underrated scenic/historic areas of the US is the one surrounding Rapid City SD. If you can spare it a couple of days, you'll be well rewarded. The obligatory stop is...
  17. ASAP: As Safe As Possible

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    If you're "more than willing to add significant time to the trip", that's great. But you don't really need to. The fastest/most direct, more or less all...

    That is Correct

    Yes, New Mexico has a 14 day quarantine requirement for anyone entering the state from a 'high risk' state, and every state you'll be visiting on this trip falls into that category. For how that...

    In That Case

    It seems that you're ruling out roads that you've driven before, to which I can only say "Bravo". But since one or both of you have already seen I-40 and southern Utah, then it does make more sense...

    US-60 has some incredibly scenic sections in Arizona but not, unfortunately, on your route to Las Vegas. The route I would suggest, instead of either...

    Keep the Route Short and the Opportunities Plentiful

    You'll need three full days of solid driving to make the trip. That really only leaves you two days for the sights and experiences you'd like to have. Since one of the mottos of this organization is...

    One More Resource

    One of the more 'interesting' towns along your proposed route is Oatman AZ. Just be aware that old route 66 east from town towards Kingman is not marked as US-66 any longer (US-66 was decommisioned...
