Hi all just checking in. Went to look at a Ridgeline and came home with a lunar silver Passport Elite demo model(2200 miles). Only four days old so far so good. Will be taking for a trip to Utah in 2 months so if anyone out there has some tips it would be much appreciated.

Congratulations. What type of tips... Passport specific or travel?

I pack a tire plug kit and a small compressor. Roadside Assistance is nice to have, but you can wait for an hour or more... experienced it twice. Also, you may be in remote areas without cellular reception. Better to be driving on a full size wheel versus the donut spare. I have had to plug a tire part way through a cross-country road trip.

Looking at what parks are accessible with Passport.
If you are visiting multiple national parks, it is cost effective to purchase an annual America the Beautiful Pass or Lifetime Senior Pass.

Generally, "National Parks" are accessible via paved roads and some with spurs of unpaved roads. "National Monuments" and "State Parks" may be paved or unpaved. In Utah, we have visited Utah's The Mighty 5 by car (non-SUV) without a problem... Arches, Bryce, Zion, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef. Moab is located adjacent to Arches with trails of varying degree of difficulty. Honda press reviews for the Passport were held at Moab. We have not experienced Moab. Goblin Valley State Park may have some easy off-road trails? We had passed it en-route to Capitol Reef.

There are many other points of interest between NY and Utah which will help with the long distances each day. Use Google Maps to save (Starred places) points of interest, then "connect the dots" to create your route. It will give you an estimate on travel time and mileage.

If you’re a disabled veteran, you can get a free America the Beautiful Lifetime pass for free. Shipping cost is $10. Cant beat it. It took about a month to get mine.
