  1. The south sees bad weather too!

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    If you have anything specific you would like to know about then please ask. One thing I would point out, is that by taking I-10 west to avoid bad weather is...
  2. We are pleased to know that you made it home...

    We are pleased to know that you made it home safely without too much drama. Thanks for the update.
  3. The Rangers love to share their 'hidden gems'.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    With the time you have available you should have plenty of time to explore the 2 parks and there is so much info available when you get there. To find hidden...

    Looks great !

    You have a wonderful adventure to look forward to !!

    Here are my thoughts on a couple of things that are worth considering.



    You could depart in the afternoon of 3 and stop over around...
  5. One step at a time.

    I'm sorry but I don't see a way to avoid what you are dreading as it seems to be one or the other. I think your best bet is to concentrate on the fact that you got to Red Bluff OK so you can do this....
  6. Sticky: Poll: It worked!

    The official Tioga pass 'Historical opening and closing' has been updated so now it's official, the pass opened on May 27th @9am with the snowpack at 41 percent of average on April 1st. (Could of...
  7. Sticky: Poll: Update.

    The Yosemite Facebook team have replied to my question on their page (Perhaps I have prompted them to update Status page?) and they confirmed that the Tioga pass did open on May 27th as scheduled. ...
  8. Sticky: Poll: It is open.

    The Tioga pass is confirmed as open on the Yosemite's road status listing so all we have to do is wait for the confirmation of the actual date it opened.

    If it is May 27th as I expect, it looks...
  9. Sticky: Poll: Would love to be there right now !

    It looks pretty spectacular in Yosemite right now with temperatures in the valley forecast at 77F and up on the high ground at over 8000 ft it could reach 67F tomorrow !

    From the Sentinel cam...
  10. Sticky: Poll: Open ? Maybe maybe not !

    On Yosemite's 'Tioga road plowing update' page it states that the road opened as planned on Friday 27th May at 9am and on the 'Alerts in effect' section it now only mentions Glacier point road being...
  11. Willing to gamble?

    I'm not sure I would be willing to gamble with last minute deals at a busy time of year, quite often (from my experience) is that all that's left are a few 'dumps' or really expensive top end...
  12. Sticky: Poll: Yikes!

    That's like Death valley prices !

    I cant find any updates on the status of Tioga pass. It still states that it will open on the 27th at 9am (yesterday) but on Yosemites road status page it remains...
  13. Sticky: Poll: Yes, when shopping around.

    Yes, that's a good ball park figure, higher prices as you would expect on Motorways.
  14. Sticky: Poll: Oh I wish !

    You sure know how to make an Englishman weep !

    Dave
  15. Sticky: That's cool !

    That's a really cool article and a great story you have created for yourselves. Congratulations, you both deserve the recognition !

    Dave.
  16. Sticky: Poll: Yeah that's bad luck.

    Yes I think you were unfortunate there Donna. After opening to cycles it's usually just a case of opening up to motorized vehicles a day or 2 later.

    As always we will wait for official...
  17. Sticky: Poll: Opening !?!

    The Tioga pass opens to bicycles today and will be open to them tomorrow before being closed again, due to possible hazards during construction repairs between May 23rd through to 26th.

    On the...

    Interstate ?

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    If your aim is to get there as quickly and safely as possible you will need one overnight stop to break the journey. Although slightly over 100 miles longer...

    A few more to consider.

    Heading south to Clorado Springs you could visit Garden of the Gods, Cave of the winds and even Pikes peak. From Woodland park it's quite a scenic drive along CO67 through Deckers. You could head to...

    I agree with Michael that Badlands, Mt Rushmore etc would make good detours not far off track. I also agree that another night in or around Yellowstone would be beneficial and memorable, it's...
  21. Comfortably done.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You won't have any trouble finding points to rest, eat and sleep along the way and without a desire to stop at places along the way, 5 days would be a pretty...
  22. Sticky: Poll: Wind and snow !

    There is a Hazardous weather warning in place with regards to strong winds in and around Yosemite and not ideal for Plow crews to be working in. We can also expect a few inches of fresh snow from...
  23. Sticky: Poll: The clean up and repairs begin.

    The crews have plowed the lenght of the road now they have to open it up, clear all the debris and get the service areas cleared and de-winterized and tasks such as repairing the road and remove any...
  24. Map out your own unique route.

    Its worth keeping in mind that you don't need to follow any preset route, you can create your own unique trip. You could try US50 through Colorado and stay along that course through Utah and Nevada...

    I too would recommend Olympic NP. Hurricane ridge offers spectacular views and Ruby beach and Hoh rain forest are great stops. Mt Rainier is another lovely NP, but then again all NP's are. Just take...
