    I downloaded the Windows 10 desktop slideshow called National Parks. I can identify all of them except two. One of those I believe is Haleakala in HI, the other is possibly Isle Royale. But I could...

    Welcome to RTA!

    What you're proposing IS do-able in 3 days, BUT you are looking at 3 days of about 10-12 hours in the vehicle. This is also weather-dependent. A spot of bad weather somewhere along...

    That's probably true. If you're planning to come from out of town, the choices may be slim.

    When in the Denver area, we saw the local reports about the I-70 closure west of town, near Idaho...

    I agree with the above statement to stay outside of DC and take the MetroRail. Unless you love paying through the nose for staying in a DC hotel *plus* the parking charges (generally over and above...

    Back when I was a teen and lived in southern Arizona, there was a ham radio operator that was operating at frequencies that he probably shouldn't have been. We'd hear him on any of our electronics in...

    We got to wondering why we never have this problem anywhere near home. We purposely drove the truck down to Clairemont Mesa, where there are ground-level antennae out the ying-yang, to see if any of...

    GLC is correct. We discovered this back in 2014 when we were in Bismarck, ND, and at a hotel which was right underneath an array of antennae, mostly of the radio variety. The truck will buck and...

    My husband and I just got back yesterday evening from a quick trip to Denver suburbs and back. The purpose was a visit to our daughter and her family. When we were deciding about whether to go and...

    Having made a speed run myself over Thanksgiving, I can tell you that Leg 1, Oceanside to ABQ in 12 hours, won't work. There is a major construction site right at the state line between AZ and NM. ...

    An addendum to my previous post, this one from my husband:

    There are a few ways to avoid Cajon Pass:

    When coming west on I-40, leave that interstate at Needles and head south on US-95. Get off...

    I will "third" the nomination of GLC's routing. That avoids many of the headaches of the "lake effect" and the tolls. I also agree, 6 days is the minimum, to keep your days to 8 hours.

    You'll...

    I'd heard that it was snowing in East County. Thanks for the picture. Our favorite tent camping spot (spring, summer, fall) was up on Mt Laguna.

    Canada's National Parks are very lovely places to camp. Some are very accessible; others are not easily reached except by plane or boat. Some of the more popular parks have a reservations system in...

    I would "second" the route suggested by glc. That 95 is the WORST road for traffic that I have ever seen, and I regularly drive in Los Angeles! Stay away from 95!
