    Warning...

    If you have an Android phone, as I do, and go to the Play Store, you will find a similarly named app: Here Hear. It is NOT the same thing at all but rather an app to treat anxiety!?!?

  2. Wildlife and Nature Away from the Madding Crowds

    The US has an extensive National Wildlife Refuge System that you can make use of anywhere and everywhere along your journey. If you are really interested in seeing wildlife in a tranquil setting,...
  3. Wow!

    While you usually won't be able to cover distances in the time stated by computer-based mapping routines, I don't see any obvious problems with your itinerary or timing. Indeed, it looks like one of...

    Good Route

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America forums!

    Yes, the basic routing outlined by various posters above is a good route between MSP and DC. While it is about 100 miles longer than the shortest...

    Adventure, History and Scenery Closer to Home

    We can sometimes get fixated on one aspect of a poster's request and engage in our own fantasies of what a perfect vacation trip can look like. I think something like that has happened here with most...

    Worth It?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The basic problem with your proposed trip is just the large number of miles and the small number of days. With several small children, and a desire to...

    Sticky: Prescient!

    I've been reading over these fantasy RoadTrips again, and one in particular struck me. Mark labeled it "In Search of Dinosaurs & Badlands Bison" in April (on page 1 of this thread). Then several...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    As you can see, I've moved your post out of a seven-year-old thread and started a new one just for your request and replies. I have also noted elsewhere...

    Je Suis d'Accord

    I agree with Michael's thoughts on this. As it happens, I was just reviewing my profile for this site and found a link to a post I wrote years ago. In that, I wrote a maxim that holds true...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    It's always possible (and my favorite hobby) to find alternative routes to the obvious and over-crowded superslabs. I-80 and I-90 in the Great Lakes...

    Above and Beyond

    There are several sites that allow homeowners to rent out their homes (including secluded 2-3 bedroom cabins in the woods). I've done a cursory search in the Rapid City area for your stated dates and...
  12. For a Tighter Mask

    One more bit of advice, which you are free to ignore and whatever sort of mask you wear. Take a look at it and if it's 'surgical-like' it will have a central covering with over-ear loops on either...

    Kids are Why the Parks are There

    I suspect that, even if the Visitors Center wasn't open, if the kids approached a Ranger with their masks on, (s)he would have something for them or at least 'swear them in' as Junior Rangers and/or...
  14. Again

    Please re-read my initial comment in this discussion. I DID show my primary physician both masks, the KN95 mask I wore into her office and the surgical mask her receptionist insisted I wear. Her...

    For the Four-Year Olds

    As long as your youngsters are going to National Parks, let/help them get the most out of their visits by checking for the availability of any Junior Ranger Program at the Visitors Center. The kids...

    Two Four-Year Olds?

    Wow! You say your two little passengers have done long RoadTrips before, but that must have been as infants, or at least no more than toddlers. At four, things are going to be a whole lot different....

    In the Real World That's "Ten Pounds of Potatoes in a Five Pound Sack"

    Absolutely

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Yes, it is possible to do the trip you envision in two to three weeks, although three would make it much more relaxing of course. And while there are no...
  19. Further Update

    I just got back from a visit to my wife's neurosurgeon and since I had just seen and responded as above, we took along three different masks. He was wearing a fourth type. His recommendations, in...
  20. Ok --

    Now read the FIRST question and answer on that site, regarding the 'surgical' mask I was given instead.

  21. It Gets Worse

    It's not just the hoi polloi either. Very early in this outbreak (January!) I laid in a stock of PPE. By a stroke of good luck, my son-in-law is actually a sales rep for a major supplier of such...

    That's a Route, Then
