    I like the thought of that route that GLC suggested, but I would like to give you a bit of warning. After you take the bypass around Lake of the Ozarks, there's a lot of construction just before you...

    I'd even check the Grand Canyon North Rim website in the early part of next week. A significant storm is moving in that could possibly close the North Rim for the season. Hate to see somebody book in...

    We're all happy you made it safely and enjoyably. I'm sure that I wouldn't have enjoyed traveling at 1 in the morning. If you're used to being up at that hour, that's one thing.

    St Louis to Hays, KS (no e in Hays) is easily done. You'll need some cash for the brief section of turnpike on the eastern side of Kansas...I think it was around $3 this past summer. Hays has a lot...

    De-icing fluid is NOT easy to buy in California. It may have to wait until he gets to Arizona, where he will probably find it at a truck stop such as Love's or Flying J.

    Excellent thread idea. :-)

    When we travel, our first choice is almost always a rest area OR Flying J/Pilot. The latter seem to have hourly cleaning requirements; more than once I've had to wait...

    This "shun-pike" route through Morgantown and Hancock not only avoids the obnoxious tolls and traffic of the PA Turnpike, it's also really pretty! At this time of the year, fall leaf peeping may not...

    One way to plan a trip is to get some sticky notes, or those sticky arrows, and use those on a good USA map to mark the places you really want to see. A route starts to form.

    One small correction to GLC's detailed routing: That's not I-95 to Vidal Junction. It should be US-95.

    Please drive safely, and don't drive those routes between LV and Yuma at night.
