  1. Maya, Maya, and more Maya

    I've had quite a lot to say about all that in my blog: Rick's Maya Archive
    If you're interested in Mayan cities you might enjoy some of the posts (not to mention the photos! ;-)

    I took a road trip through Mexico a few years back, and we took in no less than 14 Mayan cities. (I have a degree in anthropology, and I go nuts over that sort of thing). Of all the sites we visited,...

    I've only seen one downside to retirement: every day is like a Saturday, so we don't get any weekends! (It's a small price to pay :-)

    Sticky: My Heartfelt Congratulations

    Hey, everyone!

    I enjoyed watching the Live Stream, as well as the slide show. A lot of history there, great memories, and many laudable accomplishments! I'm truly sorry that I was unable to attend...

    Howdy!

    AZ 79 is a two-lane State Highway. I can't speak to the state of the pavement, since I haven't been down that way in a few years, but I would expect it to be in good shape, and no problem...
  7. Canadian Road Trips are amazing!

    Howdy, and welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Two weeks is a good amount of time, and since you're doing a loop, you'll have both directions covered, regardless of how you do it.

    First off, we have to...

    Mexican Road Trips can be quite an adventure!

    Hello again!

    Sounds like you have your route well prioritized. A word of warning: if you cross into the State of Mexico, even just passing through, be sure to get a Pase Turistico, the 14 day...

    Howdy--and welcome back!

    Merida seems to have worked out for you; that's pretty terrific! (And if you made it through the year of the pandemic, you'll make it through most anything!) Will you be...

    That's actually pretty cool. In truth, I admire anybody who's that well organized, and I love spreadsheets. At that, I must sincerely apologize if my original unedited post offended anyone; 'twas...

    I'm the sort that never plots out the details, and I almost never make reservations. That way, every day is a surprise, and that's half the fun. To each his own, I say, and Happy Trails!

  13. A huge thank you to all the health care workers, and the vaccine makers!

    I hope I'm not premature in saying this, but it's beginning to feel like we're finally on the downhill slope of the pandemic. I'm an old guy, so I'm eligible for the vaccine here in Arizona, and I'll...

    Howdy!

    Lest there be any confusion, on that last leg, what Michael meant to say was CA-58/I-15; I-40 and I-15 intersect at Barstow, but it's I-15 that will take you most directly to Las Vegas.

    That call was my first ever Zoom meeting, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was sorry that I had to drop off without at least saying goodbye--but I had a contractor show up unexpectedly to give me an...

    Thanks, George. The last time I turned on my aging, very-well-traveled laptop (which does indeed have a webcam), I got the "blue screen of death" in lieu of my usual desktop icons. The cooling fan...
  17. Sticky: A significant milestone!

    Well, if SW Dave is late to the party, that makes me a regular babe in the woods, coming up on a mere 5 years since I joined RTA and hit "submit" on my first tentative post. I've felt like part of...

    Glad to hear it! I hope it proves useful to you on your road trip. Like everybody else on this Forum, I can hardly wait to get back out there, and next summer is showing some promise!

    The Southern Route

    Happy New Year!

    I saw a news article yesterday that underscores some advice that is frequently dispensed on this Forum. Cross country drives in the winter are largely an exercise in weather...

    Hello!

    I'm a little late chiming in, but I'd be remiss if I didn't mention my book, RoadTrip America's Arizona and New Mexico: 25 Scenic Side Trips. It's specifically written for folks who are...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I'm sure you'll get a few opinions, based on your question, but honestly, the choice of vehicles for road tripping is just as personal as your choice of shoes, and almost...

    I can see the Local Angler series becoming the go-to resource for fishing the Lone Star State, and there are a LOT of fisherfolk in Texas. Well done! If the new guides are half as good as...
