    Yep Tombstone is touristy but we really enjoyed the town and a walk around Boothill. Chiricahua NM is wonderful !!
  2. Nice to know.

    Thanks for dropping by with an update ! Pleased to hear you had a great trip and don't forget where to come when planning your next !

    Dave.
  3. 'Real world' driving.

    Your timings look as though they are based around Google maps or the like, totally unrealistic in the real world ! A computer doesn't have to deal with 'real world' stuff like congestion and...
  4. Tell us a bit more.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    To be able to help you we need to know what things you consider interesting and fun ? Have you got any ideas of your route or attractions that appeal to you...
  5. There is no need to do so with a little common...

    There is no need to do so with a little common sense and other than the possible danger of doing so, one little spill and the car will smell of fumes.

    It will be worth doing some homework with...
  6. You look to have a good solid idea of how to go...

    You look to have a good solid idea of how to go about things and remaining flexible will help the trip remain as smooth as possible, although there are no guarantees you can avoid snow and you will...
  7. Not wise and counter productive.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You absolutely need to add another day and understand that this won't allow for sight seeing (other than short rest breaks near the Highway) or any bad...
  8. Sticky: Poll: Early winter weather causes temporary closure.

    Well that wintery weather has brought about a temporary closure of Tioga pass and Glacier point road this weekend.

    From Yosemite website.



    On a side note the Northern Rockies are taking a...
  9. Expect anything, or everything.

    You should pack layered clothing and expect contrasting weather. For example Flagstaff sits about 780 meters higher in elevation than Sedona so the temps and weather can vary quite a bit. The Grand...
  10. Sticky: Poll: That looks to be a significant amount of...

    That looks to be a significant amount of snowfall, especially so early in the Fall so it will be interest ing to see how this season unfolds.

    Dave.

    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...
  12. Sitgreaves pass.

    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...
  14. 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.
  17. 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,...
  18. 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...

    Welcome to the 28th Tioga Pass Prognosticator and your chance to win a free tank of gas for your road trip ride !

    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...
  22. 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...
  25. 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...
