RE: Best route from Wilmington, De to Avon Ct.

In August we will be driving our 36 ft motorhome from Wilmington, De to Avon Ct. I just found out some of the routes do not allow RV's. What would be the best route to take from these locations? Thanks I would go like the last poster...up 95 to Woodbridge,NJ......and then pickup 287 to 87 North in Sufferin,NY to 84......once in Ct , I would go to Waterbury and take rt 8 north to rt 44 into Avon....only because of the construction on 84 passed Waterbury.... Now our daughter lives in Avon....and this is a little longer but misses the const and traffic...Chuck

RE: Please recommend a campground near I-75 south of Atlanta Ga

About 2 hours south of Atlanta and 2 hours north of Florida line and 4.5 hours to Orlando, we like Twin Oaks RV Park exit 127 then left. Passport America park. I would call ahead if you want a pull thru. http://twinoaksrvpark.com/ this is a great campground and have stayed many times there....also a new campground at exit 80 next to Carrolls which is another 47 miles south..Chuck

RE: Leaving tomorrow for Fla

If you are taking 295 bypass around Jacksonville, stay at Flamingo Lake Campground... right off 295, easy off & on, clean, nice sites, nice people... we have stayed there 4 nights as transients......don't need to unhook, they have a snack bar/café, food is good..... When we took that route to Florida, we considered Flamingo Lake, also. It is a nice place, but its really more of a 'destination' type of campground than a stopover. Its a bit pricey if you're just stopping for one night to rest. We found a much better, and less expensive option was just a few miles north of that, just before you cross into Florida. Last exit in Georgia, exit #1, There is Country Oaks campground right off the interstate. Very simple, family owned campground located conveniently right off the interstate. Their rates are considerably less than Flamingo Lake (nearly half). Several nice pull-thru sites you can get where you won't even have to unhook (we didn't). There is also a KOA at the same exit, if thats what you like. There's a large truck stop/fuel station at the same exit, too, which is a good place to fill up on fuel before you hit the road the next morning (thats what we did). My thoughts were/are, why pay more for all the nice amenities a place like Flamingo Lake or the KOA has, when you're not going to use any of those amenities, and just going to rest for one night? Seems like a waste of $$. We stayed at Country Oaks on the way to and from Florida, and will probably stay there again any time we take that route. Now, if you plan to stay for a couple days in that area around Jacksonville, Flamingo Lake would be a good choice. I absolutely agree with this suggestion ....1)2 truck stops and fuel is cheaper in Ga than Florida..2)it is a great campground that we stay in all the time...call ahead for a pull thru and 3) there is a neat little BBQ place at the entrance that is a short walk...Chuck

RE: Leaving tomorrow for Fla

Safe travels. Depends on what time of day you leave and what your personal preferences are. We leave eastern Long Island around 5:30 AM - 6:00 AM on a weekday and check traffic on Google Maps as we get into Delaware. Then make a decision as to whether or not we're staying on 95 or taking 896, to 301 to I-95. That route takes you through Waldorf, Md where you will hit a stretch of traffic lights, is preferable if Baltimore and DC look like there's traffic or if a rush hour is approaching. Usually stop somewhere in southern NC. RVacation campground in Selma is right off i_95 on the east side. Carolina Crossroads in Roanoke Rapids is nice also if looking for a campground. Pecan Park on the north side of Jacksonville is easy on/off, reasonable with long, pullthru sites and 50 amp. We arrive in Fla on day two, around dinner time after the one stop and either head to Tallahassee, spend a night or two in Jax visiting friends or arrive at Disney's Fort Wildernss around 8:30 PM that second day. Safe travel and have fun! Wow, pretty aggressive driving plan to get to Florida on Day 2....from Ct, we go 84 to 87 south to 287 to 78 to 81 then decide if we want 1....66 to rt 17 to 95 above Richmond then down to 10..staying at Rvacation or SOB and then at Country Oaks in KIngsland...or 2..81 to 77 to Columbia to 20 to rt 83 to 75 to Fla/Ga hwy ..rt 300 to Tally...staying at Shenandoah Valley and the at the Barnyard in Columbia..great rests there... and then into Tally How many Seminole games do you guys do ?We have been doing almost all GO NOLES...Chuck

RE: Hudson Valley NY to Florida

My wife and I are planning on driving down to Florida in March/April towing our TT. I would like to avoid the "trouble/traffic" areas of I95 and was thinking of taking I81 down towards Virginia instead of 95 through NJ, MD, etc. I don't mind going a little out of the way if it means avoiding traffic and driving on an open highway, but am concerned that 81 may be too much out of the way. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, I remember from driving down in the past without an RV that there are certain areas where you cannot go through with propane, but can't remember exactly where. I want to avoid these areas completely with the TT this time. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I go 84 to Newburgh,NY...then 87 south to Sufferin,NY to 287..stay on 287 to 78 west to 81...stay on 81 to I-66 in Va..just past Winchester...go down 66 for 25 miles to Va rt 17 stay on this 4 lane road to I-95 , just north of Richmond,va......great ride...Chuck Hey Bill, do you still go to Pine Hill...last time I was there it seemed empty and the price was quite a bit on the upside......Chuck

RE: Bangor Me to Florida Suggested Routes

.then using above ,go down 81 to I-66 for 25 miles to Va rt 17 to I-95....above Richmond,Va...this is a good route with only limited amount of steep grades a good way to avoid the balt/DC mess. bumpy ^ what he said! we avoid nyc and nj too. Either stay on 84 through ct into pa then take 81 from Scranton. A little quicker is to get off 84 in ct onto 684 then 287 across the tappan zee bridge. Then you can take 80 or 78 over to 81. This avoids all the major cities except Hartford. Hartford is very easy to get through at night if you can time your trip for it. there are a few different routes to take back to 95 in va. 77 has a 7 1/2 mile steep grade at fancy gap. 64 has a long grade also, but I do not think it is as steep. avoid nyc, nj, Baltimore, dc, if you can! If you do not have one, get an ez pass for tolls. with it, most tolls you simply slow down through, some you do not even slow at all. Tolls are much easier and faster easier with one. The only state on that route that did not accept it is fl. They might accept it now, I am not sure. You can stay on 84 to 81 in Scranton......but not the best roads or route....too much construction and can get some weather this time of the year.....taking 84 to NY , then in NY pickup 684 to 87 across the Tap will work....I prefer the 84 to 87 crossing the Hudson in Newburgh....then 287 to 78 to 81 the ez-pass doesn't work in Florida but can buy the Sunpass at any service area if you plan on going far south and use the Florida Tkpe....Chuck

RE: By pass Atlanta

I will be traveling from Charlotte NC to Pensacola Fl. Next week. The primary route (I-85) goes thru Altanta Ga. Other than the beltway around Atlanta, is there any way to avoid the Atlanta traffic? Bob, if it really bothers you...I would go 77 to 20 in Columbia out 20 to exit 113 take Ga rt 83 down to 75...75 down to Tifton,Ga..to 319 to 19 in Thomasville,Ga to Tallahasse. to 1-10 to Pensacola...now, is it longer or slower, I don't know...Chuck

RE: Bangor Me to Florida Suggested Routes

I-295, I-95, I-495, I-290, I-90, I-84, I-81, I-64, I-95. Or instead of I-64, take I-77 south to I-26 at Columbis SC, then over to I-95. Paul, I use the above route with a few modifications......also I never saw your final destination..... but, once on 84 thru Conn, and in NY I would take 87 south toward NYC @ Newburgh,NY...to I-78 @ Sufferin,NY...pickup 287 west for 45 miles to I-78...then 78 to I-81....then using above ,go down 81 to I-66 for 25 miles to Va rt 17 to I-95....above Richmond,Va...this is a good route with only limited amount of steep grades Now.....the second route above...stay on I-81 to I-77 and then straight down I-77 to Columbia,SC is another great route....@ Columbia,SC..then can head over to I-75 and west coast of Florida...or go out I-26 toward 95 and the east coast....alot of good campgrounds along either route....Chuck

RE: Good Sams or FMCA Road side Assistance

Just got my notice from Good Sams to renew and was wondering if any one has information on the new FMCA program. Is it Coach Net with a new name or if not who is doing the towing. I got a year free with my new Winnebago 3 years ago . The price is the same 99.00 dollars. We have CN and have had good and bad service with them.....BUT, the TROUBLE with FMCA is that under the new LEADERSHIP....benefits seem to come and go.....OR change providers.....I,for one, am a little skeptical of using any benefits offered from FMCA any longer...Chuck
