    Poll: Keep in Mind...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    First and foremost: neither we nor anyone else can predict the weather more than a couple of days in advance, and even then it can only be in broad...

    Another Country Heard From

    If you really want to stay on Interstates and avoid surface roads through the mountains as much as possible, then a western alternative to the shortest possible route might be in order rather than an...

    A Bridge Too Far?

    While Moab/Arches is a worthwhile destination, it is over 300 miles each way from/to Denver. That would eat up most of your available time, especially if it turns out you can only devote two days to...

    In That Case....

    My apologies for misinterpreting your post. As Michael noted, with 15 days for a one-way drive from Chicago to Seattle you do indeed have time for shorter driving days with more exploring, more on...

    Start with the Basics

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    OK, let's start with some basic parameters and then try to make the best use of whatever 'leftover' resources you have. The drive between Chicago and...

    Old Thread

    Izzie, this discussion took place in 2007. The original poster has long since made the trip.

  7. Shunpiking

    You're a man after my own heart, especially when the Interstates are also toll roads. I do this whenever i can. My first step is usually to assume that I'm driving in the early 50's when the...
  8. My Bad

    I just re-read your post and see that you're looking for a more northern rather than southern route. I'm not sure why you'd go through Kansas, as the shortest route is through Nebraska on I-80 which...
  9. For Nearly the Same Number of Miles

    The most direct, mostly Interstate route option is fairly simple. Just take I-44 down to Oklahoma City and then I-40 west to Barstow CA and use I-15 south for a short bit to pick up CA-58 west to...

    Must(?) See Places

    I love the Ppacific Northwest, but what I have appreciated most about it is that other than perhaps Olympic National Park (which does have a section along the coast), there are no 'Must See' sights....

    First Thoughts

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    To start with, I am curious as to why you chose the places you chose, how much input your nephew had, and what it is you hope to get out of this trip....
  12. First and Foremost

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    We simply cannot endorse your plan to drive from Chicago to San Diego in two days.That would be more than a thousand miles a day which is unsafe at any...

    Sticky: Long Ago and Far Away

    When I was younger and living on the East Coast, I would make an annual pilgrimage to Watkins Glen, NY for the Formula 1 races there. It was an experience to say the least. Jackie Stewart, Stirling...
  14. Not Much to Add

    Actually, you seem to have a good grasp on the situation, and it is not at all uncommon for people to suffer from kinetosis (motion sickness) only when they're the passenger and not when they're the...

    Out and Back Loops

    Just remember that the fact that you're going from Tulsa to Glacier and back again does not mean that you have to use the same roads both ways. Perhaps you could hug the Front Range of the Rockies...
  16. Adjusting Your Stops

    If you're going to try to do this in three days, it means sticking to the shortest/fastest route possible and spacing your overnight stops evenly along the way. As to routes, that means I-35 to Clear...

    Love that Area!

    While I'm sorry about your plans being destroyed by the war, your 'alternative' is to one of my favorite areas of the US. It is both scenic and historic, although how interested you are in the...

    Other Things to Consider

    We often (I do it too) look for reasons outside ourselves that make any journey safe or not, be it weather, other drivers or terrain. The simple fact is that the major factor in how safe one's drive...

    Start Big then Go Small

    Time for Some Great Hikes

    As I mentioned earlier, your major constraint is time. While 10 days may seem like a lot of time, once you factor in a day's flying time each way, and a day or so to drive between Denver and Rapid...

    Broad Parameters

    As Dave noted, the main constraint on your trip, and our advice, is how much time you have. At a minimum you'd need a week and a half to simply get to the Mount Rushmore area (There's a LOT more to...

    That's Fine...Except

    Yes, that's all doable but for two days, one might be a typo, but the other is not possible. the one that's probably a typo is from Colby to Kansas City, which should be 386 rather than 586 miles....

    A 'Round Trip' from Almost Anywhere

    Again...

    It is simply unsafe to try to make this drive in two days. Period. It doesn't matter if you have one extra driver or four, trying to cover over 800 miles a day is unsafe. If you were a professional...
