    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...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    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...

    Yeah, I think the message you're seeing is probably because your login session timed out. If you're spending a lot of time typing up a message, that can happen, because it doesn't see your typing as...

    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...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    As an administrative note, I have changed your location to just your city. Posting your entire home address on a public forum isn't a wise idea from a security...

    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.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You should certainly be prepared for the possibility of snow. March actually can be one of the more snowy months - in part because the temperatures are more likely to be...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    When it comes to safety, the choice of route is usually very low on the list of concern. Even in the dead of winter, the oft-repeated advice of "go south" can actually be...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum, davwilll!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    I will say, that while that car may get good fuel economy, I personally would never recommend a Hyundai or a Kia. They've...

    A couple quick thoughts.

    When you're at Mesa Verde, the best and most important parts of the park, like Balcony House, require a guided tour and reservations. Make sure you're factoring that into...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    There's really no such thing as a one size fits all roadtrip, so more details would be helpful. "The Northeast" is a big place, so a little better idea of a starting...

    I have to agree with GLC, I-70 through Colorado is pretty clearly your best bet. The reality is that once you're in Moab, there's no way to get to Ohio without going over...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Your car rental contract probably will forbid the use of chains, so it's probably a non-starter for you.

    But as Donna indicated, they likely wouldn't be useful for...

    My initial thought is that with day 2, you would be to just use that extra time to explore Cincinnati itself. There's plenty of art and architecture in the city that you could check out, before...

    Water taxi in Chicago is much more of a novelty than it is a real transportation method. It certainly won't get you anywhere near the airport.

    My first impression of your plan is you are doing an incredible amount of zig-zagging and backtracking. The vast majority of that seems to be part of your goal to drive nearly all of Route 66.
