  1. 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...
  5. 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...

    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...

    Bravo!
    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...

    New Mexico's Golden Autumn

    Good Morning, and Happy October!

    Four years ago this week I was driving the backroads of New Mexico, doing the research for my book, Arizona and New Mexico: 25 Scenic Side Trips. As it happens,...

    Hello!

    There's actually not that great a difference in elevation between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, and if you're looking for Christmas markets, Santa Fe goes all out, with the whole downtown area...

    All newer neighborhoods have them. It's one of the reasons I love my OLD Phoenix neighborhood! (And my house that's almost as old as me! ;-) I realize that there's a place for HOA's, that code...

    I would imagine that this concept would work best (if it works at all), in areas that are more rural, hosts living outside the major cities, or on larger properties with plenty of room and no idea...

    Sticky: I need to look before I leap!

    Whoops--my bad. As usual, Donna, you were way ahead of me! Thanks again for putting this together. I'd really love to try some of these on for size, the further north, the better! Here's hoping that...

    Good one, Donna! Have you considered doing one of these for US 89 (one of my personal favorites)? It starts and ends in about the same places as US 93, but goes through some very different country...

    Your idea would be a lot more useful!

    This new app is actually less sophisticated than your idea. The app displays a modified Google maps screen that flows along with you as you travel, just like any other GPS or mapping app. If you pass...

    It's a nice idea, but they're dreaming if they think people will pay $6.99 per week for the service that's required to actually use their "free" app. I signed up for the free trial (stopping short of...

    If Yellowstone is a must-see, and 10 days is an absolute limit, driving a rental one way (either a car or an RV), and then flying home to Knoxville might be worth considering. You could...
