    Honestly, it's pretty disappointing that any of the parks are open right now. It's really just putting park employees at risk and encouraging people to disregard health safety guidelines.

    If we...

    This is a pretty common reaction, and something I'd just expect at toll booths for the foreseeable future.

    Illinois closed down all of their cash toll booths about 2 weeks ago. You're expected to...

    It is the great contradiction of the pandemic.

    Gas prices are at historic lows ($1.48 is the lowest I've seen so far, inflation adjusted that's closest to the cheapest prices of my lifetime),...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I think your best course of action is to not overreact to one weather event.

    Based on the quick look at the forecasts, I don't see any snow or bad weather expected...
  5. and.... it's closed

    And just like that, Disney has closed their theme parks in the US.

    Not surprising, as within the past 24 hours, basically all pro and college sports have suspended or cancelled their seasons....

    The reality is that people anywhere in the US are being advised against attending large gatherings and are encouraged to keep "social distance."

    The point of looking through the Field Report that Buck linked to isn't to give you an itinerary that you also need to follow, instead, it's an example that you can pull ideas and inspiration from....

    Welcome Back to the RTA Forum!

    There is an entire section of the forum for support of our mapping program, including a Step-by-Step guide for adding stops along the way.

    I would agree with Buck that all of these can be done within 3 weeks, however, I will also say it still looks to me like you are underestimating the distances in the American West and need to spend a...

    While there are good beaches on Lake Michigan, and not just Indiana Dunes, there are some decent ones in Chicago as well, you won't usually find many people on them in late September. By that point...

    October really is just too late in the year to expect beach weather anywhere near Washington DC. You probably need to be looking at being at least as far as South Carolina to have a good chance at...

    More bacon than the pan can handle

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Let me start by saying that if your expectations are to drive 15-20 hours at a time, then you absolutely have a major problem with long drives. Doing that in a single...

    You've got a solid outline, and I completely agree with Dave that detouring to Vegas and LA doesn't really make any sense on your timeline.

    I will offer a couple small suggestions.

    Wait, I'm really confused, you went from talking about not having a time limit, to talking about doing this in just 10 days. Is that round trip? If so, you need to go back to the drawing board.

    I think that's a lot of driving with very little time to see anything expect what you're driving past at 70mph. While you could physically do all of this, I see driving day after driving day.

  17. Sticky: One more to add

    I would also throw in the recommendation of visiting the Rock Island Armory, which was a major POW camp, and as such is home to a significant Confederate Cemetery.

    It would fit in well between...

    I think finding an interesting downtown hotel around an hour from Chicago might be difficult. In that hour-radius circle, you're generally looking at suburb type towns, where chain hotels along the...

    That makes more sense, as horrific and inexcusable as it is, and it certainly would be even worse being in such a rural area with limited medical option.

    If you've abandoned the RV idea, I think you might have the one situation where I would consider just renting a car in NYC.
