    It's Different

    While Canada does have multi-lane, controlled-access highways in and around its major population centers, it does not have a nation-wide system of such highways. Indeed it has only one...

    One Possibility

    While your interests may vary, I did have a look at I would do if I had five days or so to get from Dallas to St. Louis and wanted some different experiences along the way while not being in too much...
  3. The Data

    Flagstaff is just under 7,000 feet in elevation. Not quite a mountain top, but not conducive to warmth either. Average temperature ranges reported by the National Weather Service for late February...

    ...and Some Sights

    So, with route, safety, weather. and over-night stop taken care of, that just leaves a few places to stop along I-10. At about 900 miles from Austin to Tucsonas, you won't have time for a major stop...

    Perhaps Better Time/Miles Management

    Unfortunately, one does not 'squeeze in' a visit to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. There is a single road in and out, and no way to travel along the rim. That's 90 miles round trip from the...
  7. Highlights

    As I noted in my initial response, I wouldn't worry a whole lot about snow or ice on this trip unless you're going to tie yourselves to an exact schedule, such as "If It's Tuesday, This Must Be...
  8. Normal vs. Specific

    Welcome aboard RoadTrip America!

    While I-10 is normally snow free along the section you'll be driving, there is simply no way to forecast the specific weather you'll see two or three months from...
  9. Sticky: Take a Deep Breath and Enjoy

    Wonderful, relaxing place for which the word bucolic was invented, and yes, you do get to 'play' with the Budweiser Clydesdales and their new foals.

    Friday Night Lights

    HERE is a link to national High School sports. It's pretty all encompassing, but I found it relatively easy to navigate. The big dog in the area your looking at is the Fort Stockton Panthers, but...
  11. ...and Just Another Suggestion...

    Since the stops you've mentioned so far are all National Parks, I'm going to suggest a route and attractions that continue in that vein. From Estes Park CO head for Scottsbluff NE and Scotts Bluff...
  12. What Floats Your Boat?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The thing about a RoadTrip that makes it unique is that it IS as unique as the person planning and making it. So other than generic advice (we'll get to...

    I-95 vs. I-81

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Well, to be honest, that's not really much of a fight. I would opt for I-81 every day of the week and twice on Sundays. Either way it's two full days...

    National Forest Camping

    I don't camp very often anymore. Age and arthritis have caught up with me. But when I was doing so, I usually had a small SUV-'ish' car fitted out with a bed and I just boon docked in state and...

    Start at the Beginning/End

    You do say that you're going to me making this trip from roughly mid-September through early October, so the order in which you have things is probably right. Do the northern part of this loop early...
  16. Not Much Choice

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Unfortunately, a lot of what is between Iowa (I assumed Des Moines) and Mesa is desert. Arizona is, after al, part of the 'Desert Southwest' and Mesa...

    D'Accord

    I am in full agreement with Dave, Donna and glc on a couple of matters.

    First, if you've never driven an RV before, a 6-8 week RoadTrip meant for enjoyment is not the place to start. Just...

    The Thing About Leaves....

    .. is that they're everywhere in New England (and even in some other parts of the country!). When I used to live in that area, the 'natives' would look at the 'best leaf-peeping sites' lists and know...

    I-84

    It's I-84 east from Scranton rather than I-87 (which doesn't go near Scranton).

    For a Few Miles More...

    I took another look at the route I proposed from DC up to Boston, and if you do decide to skip the NYC area all together, there is a better option than what I first offered. Rather than switching to...

    Probably

    It is far more likely than not that getting out of town before the morning rush hour would help considerably, but "before the morning rush hour" means before 6:00 am in the DC area. As to other parts...

    Why Use I-95 at All?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I used to live on the NH/ME coast just north of Boston while most of the rest of my family lived in either Wilmington DE or Washington DC, so I am...
  23. Frostbite Falls?

    Finding the off-the-beaten path is what this site is all about so let's see what we can find for you. As the title of this reply suggests, I'm gong to start at the end of your trip. In Minnesota you...
  24. Always Start with Basics

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I-40 to North Carolina, and I-10 back from Florida are as straightforward and as basic as it gets. The only navigating you'll have to do is from Raleigh...

    Nevertheless...

    I don't claim to be a fan (or even a viewer) of any portion of the Twilight series of books and films, but the town of Forks certainly revels in whatever connection it has to that world.
