    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I'm not sure exactly what you're thinking about in terms of routes (I-81 is a north/south route that doesn't go anywhere near Missouri?) but purely for scenery, I...

    I'm actually surprised you saw any signs for US-52 north of Minneapolis.

    US-52 is technically the same road as I-94 from St. Paul all the way to Central North Dakota - where it splits off and...

    Personally, I'd actually probably take I-90 as far as Sioux Falls, and then drop down to I-80 via I-29/I-680. You'll have a little less elevation that way, which with a loaded down SUV that is...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Thanks for sharing your story and we're glad you had a good time. The badlands are a great place, and I think I've seen Bison in or near the campground every time I've...

    As others have mentioned, you can certainly get to Yellowstone in 5 days, but without knowing any other details about your plans, it's hard to say if that's "good."

    At the very least, how much...

    I'll give you this: You kind of did everything wrong, you had some bad luck with your car on top of it, and you still came here to share your story.

    I think that's pretty commendable, seems like...

    I would completely agree and I'm glad you've learned a lesson from this. I will note one frequent misconception about fatigue is that you can just stop when you're tired - the problem is by the time...

    If you're interested in the pros/cons of scamps, you might take a look at the Youtube Channel Playing with Sticks. He's got several videos about Scamps specifically, as well as other small travel...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Best routes are hard because what is best for you depends upon so many variables. For example, time is a huge one and the difference between 2 and 3 weeks is quite...

    I've got a custom made teardrop and I love it. It's basically a bed on wheels, with an outdoor kitchen. It's small enough that I can take it anywhere, including many places I'd never go with a full...

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    I-84 doesn't go through California, but I'm guessing you mean you'll be heading up I-15 from Victorville to I-84 in Utah.

    For your trip, that probably is the easiest...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    It seems like you've got a good start on your planning.

    I'm not familiar with any specifics of construction, other than to say that on a trip of this length, you're...

    As bad as the prices are, another reason to book the car rental early is you may not have any options otherwise.

    I've found this summer a great number of times that when I search for rental cars I...

    Keep in mind, you're talking significantly longer distances than your California trip. Mt Rushmore to the Grand Canyon is more than 1000 miles - SFO to SD is about 500, and that's just talking point...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I've got to say, this seems like kind of a strange plan. There's certainly plenty to do in between South Dakota and Northern Arizona, but it's actually a case where there...

    If it's just the 2 of you, a trailer seems kind of excessive to me. I've packed a car smaller than a Corolla for camping trips. You'll need to use the back seat for some storage, and may have to...

    I love Dave's suggestion of looking for home rentals, especially with a large family. I wouldn't even limit it to days where you'll be in a place for a few nights. Even for a single overnight, such...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    When you traveled 30 years ago, did you use US-40 or I-40? They both highways that could be used, but would be very different experiences. You mentioned "best interstate"...
