    With regards to the weather all you can do is wait and see what the forecast is a few days before you leave and then keep checking for updates. You may find a more northerly route is experiencing...
  2. When planning your route the important thing to...

    When planning your route the important thing to remember is not to take any notice of electronic mapping estimated drive times, they are just not realistic in the real world ! 550 -600 miles per day...
  3. Sticky: Poll: Not just snow and ice.

    I thought it possible that it would open a few days after they re-opened Glacier point road as the forecast was promising. However that hasn't happened so far and I have also learnt that it isn't...
  4. A few questions to start.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    OK so can you give us a bit more detail, is this a one way trip of 10 days or is it a round trip ? Which Raliegh are you headed for ? Have you any...
  5. Sticky: Poll: With that in mind.

    With the possibility of it re-opening this season I am going to throw a second dart (as I no longer have a valid entry) and say that the pass will close permanently on December 2nd at 5pm.

    Dave.
  6. Sticky: Poll: Glacier point road re-opens.

    Improved conditions has made it possible to get Glacier point road open again and with a few settled days ahead perhaps we could see the Tioga pass open again.

    Dave.
  7. Sticky: Poll: Maybe, Maybe not !!

    With night time temps hovering above freezing (36f) and daytime temps possibly touching 60f in the next few days at 8500 feet, just maybe we aren't done yet !

    Dave.
  8. Sticky: Poll: Winter weather advisory in place.

    From the National weather service.



    I wonder if this is enough to make them call it for the season ?

    Dave.

    You have a nice trip coming together !! I would recommend driving through Prairie creek redwoods SP on the Newton B Drury parkway, it's a small diversion that hardly adds any time but a lovely...
  10. Someplace to start.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    With 3 weeks you certainly have enough time to complete your 'wish list', it's just a matter of where to prioritise your time. I think it's a trip that would...
  11. Sticky: Poll: Will it or won't it ?

    The Tioga pass is still temporarily closed to traffic at this moment in time but the weather looks wonderful in Yosemite right now, even if a tad chilly ! The Yosemite Facebook page says that...
  12. Not our usual 'Bag'.

    Hello and welcome to Road trip America !

    First off, here at RTA there is no such thing as "Another annoying tourist" as we are all like minded Road trip enthusiasts so no need for apologies. ...
  13. Sticky: Poll: Early, very early if it's permanent !!

    Yeah that would be really early !! To put that in perspective, it closed on Oct 16th 1949 and since then only in 2004 could it match Oct 17th. It looks as though it's likely to be around 12 inches...
  14. Sticky: Poll: Sunday closure.

    Tioga pass is to close "Temporarily" again on Sunday at 4pm due to an incoming storm. Looking at the weather forecast it doesn't seem to amount to much at all but could be the risk of ice.

    I'm...
  15. It might be a typo but the Newton B Drury parkway...

    It might be a typo but the Newton B Drury parkway is past Klamath and the Mystery tree so the order should be reversed to visit the Parkway the next day. Your first day on the road is a long one...
  16. Lodging options.

    A quick way to find options and deals for lodging is to do a search through the Reservations page.

    Dave.
  17. Sticky: Poll: Open with caution.

    The Tioga pass is 'Amber' at the moment, currently open with a caution warning of icy conditions. Anyone planning to travel are advised to use the Yosemite website for the latest information as it...
  18. How many days are you planning on taking for the...

    How many days are you planning on taking for the trip ?
  19. If only we knew.

    As Buck mentioned it's just impossible to know at this stage. You can look at long term forecasts, check out historical data on weather sites but in reality it has no link to what will happen at the...

    Best ??

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You haven't given us much to go on to be able to offer meaningful advice. When you say "Best" what does that mean, quickest, most scenic, winter weather in...

    The more time the better imo.

    It makes perfect sense to me ! (After all we are a bunch or road trippers ! Haha)



    If you want to start by visiting family then flying into LA makes the most sense to me, unless you can get...

  24. Involve the boys.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    We really don't do 'Must see's' here as tastes vary and my 'must see' might be your 'must avoid'. What I would suggest is to get a good map of the areas you...

    A few more questions.

    Hi and welcome to RTA !

    The more you can tell us about yourselves and interests the more we can help. Are you residents of SF or flying into there to start ? I presume the latter as you say...
