    Sticky: Stay at Home means exactly that!

    I agree as well! Sadly, here in Arizona, at least where I live, they've been slow to take the shutdown seriously. Traffic on city streets and area freeways has barely slowed down, and photos of the...

    It's down to $2.09 at Costco here in Phoenix. That's a fair bit cheaper than everywhere else in town, but the trend is most definitely downward!

    Gas prices are plummeting

    I heard on the news this morning that the price of fuel is expected to fall through the floor in some parts of the U.S., largely because there is plentiful supply, and extremely low demand. Here's a...
  6. Buy one now and beat the rush!

    When all this is over, and people's lives return to some version of normal that doesn't involve mandatory staying at home, we're all going to need a vacation. A lot of folks (myself included) are...
  7. Tough question, about a worrisome situation

    Hello, and welcome back to the RTA Forum!

    As fast as all this has been changing, I think it's safe to say that nobody here is in a position to offer any confident predictions about what you're...
  8. Some National Park campgrounds are first-come, first-served

    Hello!

    Back country camping in the National Parks definitely requires far-in-advance planning. The number of permits issued is kept small, while the demand continues to grow, so the available...

    Well Done!

    Peter!

    At the risk of sounding like a broken record, bravo! Kudos for a journey well-traveled and a tale well told.

    My own trip to Alaska ranks high on my list of all-time favorites. It's just...

    Great read!

    Peter:

    Ditto, to everything Dave just said. A truly epic report! Speaking from the perspective of a fellow scrivener, you're doing a fantastic job of conveying the spirit of the experience, and...

    Since you've said you're not hikers, sure, I'd say that should be enough for Banff and Jasper--but you should consider a night in Yoho as well. It's right next door, after all, and Emerald Lake is...
  12. Have I got a deal for you!

    Hello, and welcome to the RTA Forum!

    The Canadian Rockies are one of my favorite parts of the world, and I've just completed a post on my personal blog that goes into a fair bit of detail about...

    I think you meant to say Kayenta. Kenyatta was the first Prime Minister of Kenya when they gained their independence, back in the '60's. ;-)

    Hello!

    That's actually a pretty common request, so much so that we have a whole series of road trip books planned that will fill that very need. The first volume is available now, and, as it...

    Hey, Peter

    Good show--I've been looking forward to reading about your Alaskan adventures. (Me, and everyone else, I'm sure!) Your report is already bringing back memories. Nice looking Jeep; I'd...
  18. Don't be too quick to dismiss Canada

    Hello!

    If the trans-border car rental is the only major fly in the ointment for your original 1st option, there's a way to make that work. Most major rental agencies WILL allow you to take their...

    It's downright inspirational! Pity that so many of the photos have that Photo Bucket watermark; I assume that's a photo hosting site. Are the images unretrievable?

    New Phoenix Bypass

    Effective yesterday, there's a new freeway in Metropolitan Phoenix: the South Mountain Freeway, which completes a larger project called the Loop 202, the innermost of several more-or-less concentric...
  23. Remember the Wolfman?

    The towers in Albuquerque look to be radio broadcast antennas (IMHO). I wonder if sparsely populated states like New Mexico and Montana allow higher wattage radio transmissions--which would increase...
  24. What's up with the antennas?

    Hi, Donna

    Kudos for a smooth trip and a nice report! But you've piqued my curiosity: what exactly happens to your truck when you pass by large clusters of antennas? And what sort of antennas? Cell...

    Consider a shortcut

    Hello!

    If you do end up driving from El Paso to Phoenix without the trailer, there's a shortcut you should consider. If you follow I-10 the whole way from El Paso, that's 430 miles of seriously...
