    The I-70 west of Denver has some very scenic areas, especially around Vail and where the highway tracks the river. I can't remember... are there any tunnels through the mountains? Other than the...

    DC: Some hotels might allow you to park there a couple of days if staying there for a few nights as well. But, if driving a car, you will probably want to stay in the suburbs close to a Metro Line...

    Some states issue an EZ Pass to non-residents. The fees by license plate photo result in higher toll fees plus a service fee. All that can add up quickly. For toll road planning you can explore the...

    But the investment in a decent sleeping bag is an investment for life!!! Motels are consumption.

    Days of 11 hrs driving/in-transit are rather gruesome, something like hitting the road at 8am and arriving at 7p, checking-in, going out to eat, collapsing and repeating. Six days makes it 9 hrs...

    Wow, that first leg is LONG at 800 mi plus. If it were to the end destination with a few days rest I could see doing that on an exception basis, but certainly not as part of a multi-day road trip....

    I concur with AZBuck and GLC with regards to routing. Barstow is a good town to spend the night before the drive into Los Angeles. You didn't mention where in LA, but Barstow is a good choice as you...

    GLC's detailed route is advised. Whether or not you take I-76 Pennsylvania Turnpike is a personal choice. Personally, I am not a big fan of the PA Turnpike but after a long drive you might prefer...

    Beware of those pot holes around the Chicago area--I count my lucky stars just a couple of weeks ago that my tires or front end weren't bent out of shape the getting a flat tire where there isn't...

    I tend to think it is more of a 4 days of driving journey each way especially when considering human 'flaws' factors. At least you don't have many city traffic jam challenges to speak of except for...

    My 2 cents... just back from a cross-country 6-week road trip. A few short comments:

    Greetings,

    The travel plan is a bit ambitious, especially hauling a trailer, in particular the 600+ mile days' calculated driving hours. If the hours are from an on-line mapping program I usually...

    Don't forget the wind... it can be formidable across the Rocky Mountain states on I-80. Beautiful driving but don't let go of the steering wheel!

    I don't think you mentioned what time of year you were planning for the trip. That could be a huge factor in campsite availability and weather due to the higher latitudes AND high elevations of some...
