    I'd say it's both a little normal and a little back luck. The times I've had issues with recreation.gov are when the site is struggling with demand. If timed entry tickets opened up at a certain...

    I've only been asked for an IDP once, and that was renting a campervan from a small company in Spain, and they only asked for it because their insurance required it.

    I actually can't imagine that...

    That really wouldn't work. Tioga Pass is the road that goes over the Sierra Nevada mountains through Yosemite National Park, to the Yosemite Valley on the West side of the mountains. You wouldn't...

    What exactly is your plan for California?

    Your initial post indicated you want to avoid big cities and explore nature, but your map seems like you'll be spending a lot of time in San Diego, San...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    For the Wisconsin portion of your trip, is Solon Springs your actual destination, as suggested by your map? I'm not aware of any big Belgian/Luxembourg settlements in...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Both Rawlins and Casper could be good places to stop, with plenty of places to stay no matter what your budget. Rawlins is a little closer to the halfway mark, but I...

    Do you mean the Lincoln Home in Springfield?

    I believe all the National Park Sites in Springfield are free, so they may not actually sell the pass there. But as Donna mentioned, there's really no...
  8. Is there a reason you're flying into Denver?...

    Is there a reason you're flying into Denver? That's still over 900 miles to Glacier. Compared to the 1600 miles from St. Louis, you're not even gaining all that much vs just driving the whole way.

    The Lady Bird Johnson Trail is pretty short and easy and was one of my favorite stops at Redwood National Park.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I agree with GLC on the choice of route. It is about the same distance as the route through Albuquerque, but spends much more time on Interstates or 4 lane roads. US-87...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    One thing that stands out to me is that you mention going to Banff, and spending 3 weeks in Edmonton, but you don't mention Jasper NP at all. Jasper is several hours from...

    When did that one open? I was just in Springfield last year, around Memorial Day, and I didn't remember it - but I also don't think I was on that specific part of I-44 (I camped north of the city). ...

    This appears to be very similar to the question you asked in 2018 and then again in 2019.

    Your end destination is slightly different, but the principal would be the same. You could still go as...

    The weather should be fine that time of year. It could be cool, and perhaps rainy at times, but it's a pretty good time to be traveling in these areas.

    Unless you're staying right downtown, most...

    I was just at Matts Bar for a Jucy Lucy (not Juicy - unless you're going to the 5-8 club!) on Saturday.

    I would absolutely pick up your car immediately from the airport. Minneapolis' public...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I'll start with saying that your biggest issue with Yellowstone is that the park largely doesn't reopen for the spring until mid-may. On May 1, nearly all of the...

    6 in a room is going to be a challenge. You're certainly going to be running up against occupancy limits - many places are going to limit 5 people to a room.

    This might be a case where you might...

    What have you been looking at for hotels to this point? What kind of budget are you looking at for lodging?

    I've never had too much difficulty finding reasonably...

    I would say I prefer option A - but perhaps not for the reason you might think.

    I like that option because you're spending multiple days in the same campsite. Being that you're going to be in an...

    That was a great read.

    I've done some driving in Mexico - more often in a rental car, but a time or two in my own car as well - and all of my experiences pretty much line up with what he...

    There is also a store just up the river in Savannah, Illinois (not far from Mississippi Palisades that Buck mentioned) called Frank Fritz Finds.

    I believe he is or at least was connected to...

    I understand and respect that, and certainly appreciate them myself. The flip side is I think that's part of why I dislike the stop so much - it literally is a bridge to nowhere that was built purely...

    The one thing that really sticks out to me is Holbrook - going from Monument Valley to Holbrook then back to the Grand Canyon seems like a really big detour. That almost doubles the distance.
