  1. If I were you, I would not prebook rooms,...

    If I were you, I would not prebook rooms, especially on the first night where you have the largest chance to see traffic or weather issues. New Years day isn't a peak time for motels, so you're not...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    As far as routes, personally would take I-40 one way and I-10 the other, because the distance isn't much different. Going along the border itself wouldn't be a concern,...

    Assuming that there will be no traffic problems on I-95 between NY and Richmond is kind of a fools errand.

    I will guess that being that Jan 1 is on a Friday this year, so holiday traffic should...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I can't say how much time it will save - especially when you're talking about a part of the country where Traffic backups are routine. The time of day, day of the week,...

    No doubt this is an unusual year, and it is hard to say how the pandemic will impact the closing - although the fact that they are ending the reservation system on 11/1 does make it seem like that's...
  6. Sticky: June 15

    I hate to disagree with the sheriff, but it seems pretty clear that NPS declared the pass to be open on June 15th. The CalTrans site also lists June 15 as the opening date.

    Yes, reservations have...

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    We appreciate you looking at old threads, but since each trip is different, we like to give each trip its own thread.

    It certainly is an interesting idea with some potential, but it's also getting to be kind of a crowded marketplace for that sort of thing.

    I would look at Google-fi, since I believe they will ping off of almost anyone's tower.

    But as Donna mentioned, even there, within national parks you're going to have very limited service at all....

    There are signs on I-80 in Nebraska warning of the I-70 closure. I-76 certainly has far less traffic than usual.

    Was in Fort Collins yesterday, and the smoke in town was thick, presumably from the...

    Realistically, your options are nearly endless. Basically any of the couple dozen national parks in the 4 corners states could be fit into your trip without too much of a detour. That is too say,...

    Another one

    My favorite little road numbering oddity like that is for MN-23.

    A small section of the road actually goes through Wisconsin, but it is still considered MN-23. It's just south of Duluth, as the...
  13. The general route I'd probably take would be...

    The general route I'd probably take would be I-90/I-71/I-70/I-44/I-40 - which would take you through Cleveland, Columbus, St. Louis, and Oklahoma City. That avoids most tolls, particularly Chicago,...

    US-2 doesn't go to Door County. Also, I can't think of any tolls in this area (or anywhere is Wisconsin actually.) The only thing I could think you're talking about would be the ferry, if you decided...

    I honestly can't believe any American school is even thinking of restarting in person classes within the next month, even though that's exactly what many are planning. Baseball has really been a...

    I would not consider hauling the car, and unless you have some really compelling reason, would actually consider towing in this case to be a pretty bad idea.

    First, I suspect towing would put you...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I would encourage you to check out auto driveaway services that do what you want in a professional, and insured, fashion. You'll be at the whims of what cars they may...

    Honestly, I think you are worrying way too much about weather. While it's not impossible to see a little snow in late April, it would be quite unusual to see a significant winter storm at this time...

    As I stated, I would strongly advise not going anywhere near the black hills in the first 3 weeks of August 2020.

    If that means spending more time in Cody, great. If that means doing as someone...

    To be brutally honest, Traveling to the Black Hills this August, even though you'll technically be there a few days before the starts, strikes me as a horrifically bad idea.

    If you don't have any time restrictions, the only thing I see stopping your trip from being Feasible is COVID related issues.

    My last time doing a dedicated trip to the black hills, I found a cabin near Custer, which I found to be a pretty good location. As glc noted, rapid City will have the largest selection of options.

    Bozeman is too far. That's nearly 700 miles. If you're only shooting for Gillette on day 2, then Missoula would be fine.

    600 miles is really the upper limit of how far you should drive in a single...
