    We booked Rancho Sedona to visit Slide rock which is about 20 mins away. I can't tell you anything about it though as we were kept out of the area by a massive snowstorm in February and had to...

    Yes you can. It's twisty in places but I've driven much more challenging roads.



    There are many private run campgrounds that have pools and play areas, just search for them in the area you plan...
  4. A few more ideas.

    You could also do the 17 mile drive between Pacific grove and Pebble beach near Monterey or book a Hearst castle tour. If you wanted to see something other than coast you could visit one of the...

    Early planning stages.

    Hi Kate and welcome to RTA !

    It's great you are searching the forums but I would suggest you start your own dedicated thread in the Spring Roadtrips forum with as much detail to your plans as...

    You should see a poll at the top of the thread. Select the date range that relates to your choice and click on it.
  7. Cool report. Thanks.

    Thanks for the report and the pictures ! It's always nice to see other members road trip adventures to fill in the gaps between our own and to see a trip go from the planning pages to reality. Also,...
  8. Sticky: Poll: First dart !

    I am a little late getting this up and running for this contest as 'real life' got busy, but here we are so good luck everyone !

    I'm going to get my date in and it's going to be November 23rd at...

    You have to go with your gut on this one. Yes Big bend is remote and adds lots of miles to a trip but we were glad we done it. We covered about 3800 miles in 18 days which was a lot of driving and...

    As said, space could be an issue with a campervan but as your girls are young, doable for some people but not all. I prefer the space and facilities an RV offers and as you get a lot more open roads...
  12. Please reconsider.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    I'm glad you are already aware of the potential problems, but I feel they are worse than you may think. Doing a long day on the road is one thing, attempting...

    I would have to agree with Michael. To do Yosemite any kind of justice you need a couple of days there and attempting to drive 700 miles in a single day is unwise and unsafe and if you made it you...

    The route through Amboy and Oatman on '66 is pretty cool as you head to Kingman. You could still do it in a day without an overnight stop and add something down the way or just keep it relaxed. A...
  15. So many great options.

    Hello and welcome back to RTA !



    Some mountain regions may have limited access but you could still make a great trip out of it. We did a lovely round trip from LA to Olympic NP that you can see...
  16. You just have to embrace the winter.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    Winter travel can be very rewarding, but it's also unpredictable so you have to expect the unexpected and be prepared to make changes on the go. Thinking...
  17. Sticky: No escaping the bug !

    Hey Pete.

    Great report and a wonderful family adventure !



    As a Brit I understand what you mean about the feeling of a certain freedom with the RV and being able to get away from the...
  18. Totally unpredictable.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !



    It's just impossible to find a route that you can plan out now that will guarantee you avoid snow and ice in 6 or 7 weeks time, it can be a problem...
  19. Sticky: That sounds like the New Priests grade you refer...

    That sounds like the New Priests grade you refer to on CA120 after Groveland ! Yeah thats quite a drive in an RV, although it's a lot tamer than the Old Priests grade.



    I know exactly what you...

    Hello and welcome back to RTA !

    A week gives you enough time to do a loop trip out of Vegas. If you have a full week on the road without including any time you may need to get in and out of Vegas...

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    I hope you eventually find what you are looking for, but please be careful ! Have you no other family member or trusted friend you can talk to about this ? ...

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You haven't told us much so that we can offer meaningful advice. What are your interests ? How much time do you have ? Is it a one way trip or a round trip...
