    I can tell you that I'm not making any plans to make a major trip in June. I'm hopeful that maybe by July or August things will be in a more stable place, however, even...
  4. Montana

    Lifey,

    Montana has an option for permanent registration/license plates for any vehicle more than 10 years old. I presume that's what your van is covered under.

    $34 Drivers License, valid for 8 years.

    $85 State Registration Fee per year, plus:

    A car that's 11 years old, and has just 150,000 miles certainly can be used for a long roadtrip if it's been well maintained.

    Sorry, Lifey, but you're badly misstating GLC's position, and I think you know it.

    Honestly, it's pretty disappointing that any of the parks are open right now. It's really just putting park employees at risk and encouraging people to disregard health safety guidelines.

    This is a pretty common reaction, and something I'd just expect at toll booths for the foreseeable future.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I think your best course of action is to not overreact to one weather event.
