    I am completely in favor of a national law standardizing the acceptance of all toll transponders, be they iPass, SunPass, EZ-Pass, etc. And none of these companies' members should be penalized for...

    Yes, the slider is a great function. And the ability, at least in the USA, to drill down into a state and local areas. The map also shows there are few places to run and hide!

    Grand Canyon can offer a special beauty in winter plus reduced crowd setting. By northern route I assume you generally mean I-70 and by southern route, I-40. Both will have elevated areas although...

    The I-70 west of Denver has some very scenic areas, especially around Vail and where the highway tracks the river. I can't remember... are there any tunnels through the mountains? Other than the...

    DC: Some hotels might allow you to park there a couple of days if staying there for a few nights as well. But, if driving a car, you will probably want to stay in the suburbs close to a Metro Line...

    Some states issue an EZ Pass to non-residents. The fees by license plate photo result in higher toll fees plus a service fee. All that can add up quickly. For toll road planning you can explore the...

    But the investment in a decent sleeping bag is an investment for life!!! Motels are consumption.
