RE: Route from PA to Clinton CT

We're leaving Hickory Run SP in White Haven PA to go to Clinton CT on our way to Bar Harbor. Should we go I-80E to I-287N to I-95? Or, is there a better way. Thanks for your help. I would and have gone I-80 to I-81 to I-84 to rt 9 off 84 in Ct...stay on Rt 9 til it hits 95 and go south on 95 for a very short distance.....the construction in Waterbury,Ct is only 8 or 9 miles long...and most days travels well...Chuck

RE: Long shot, but thought I'd ask...

Our boys really want to tailgate this fall. Not something we were planning to do with our fifth wheel, but hey - why not? I'm thinking a trip to NC State in Raleigh would be fun. (Ulterior motive - would love for our kids to consider this school when the time comes.) Anyone have experience tailgating there as a non-alum? Any general advice for newbies to the tailgating experience? you can park at the Fairgrounds as the OP has stated...It is first come ..no reservations,as we come for the NC State vs FSU game every other year....Chuck

RE: Best route Albany, ny to Myrtle Beach with TT

Hi, Looking for tips and advice. I consider ourselves still newbies. We have only been campers for the past 3 years and have never traveled more than 3-4 hours from home. This is our first big travel and I am a little nervous, the driver (my husband) is not. We have driven many times to MB, but not with a TT. We will be leaving on a Wednesday, between 3-5 pm from Albany, NY. I am looking for advice on best route overall to take with TT, and I hate traffic. Also, any advice if possible for ideal gas stops and any recommendations of a place to stop just to grab a few hours sleep. We do not want a campground, we will only rest for a few hours and get back on the road. I was thinking somewhere close to Fredericksburg? Appreciate any other tips for traveling to MB. Thank you! we had friends from Selkirk and did MB for many years together...we woud go down 87 to Sufferin and take 287 for 45 miles to 78....78 to 81 to 66 near Front Royal,Va....66 to rt 17 around Warrenton,Va to 95...then straight down 95,not using the bypass at Richmomd, to Latta,SC ..this is a little longer but it is nice driving.....we always stayed in Wincester,Va both going and coming.....so pull in and use the Flying J....in Winchester....Chuck

RE: Bad experience Lancaster KOA

ADA requires reasonable accommodation of the disability. Based on OP's description, what was requested was reasonable if the distance from the campsite to the gate could not be easily traversed by the HC person. In addition to posting to the various campsite review sites, formal ADA complaint should be filed with a copy to the CG and to KOA main office.It is this thinking that causes businesses to want to get any disabled person in and out as soon as possible. The Drumbeat of sue, sue, sue makes businesses fear the disabled customer, not want to accommodate them. It is this thinking that causes businesses to want to get any disabled person in and out as soon as possible. The Drumbeat of sue, sue, sue makes businesses fear the disabled customer, not want to accommodate them. As far as whether or not the requests were reasonable, in my opinion absolutely not. Why should a disabled person get to bring in guests without a fee when everyone else has to pay. Not all parks have the ability to monitor all visitors. We can, but we are in Montana and very few of our guests from Thailand have visitors stopping by. But if a park is located a short distance from major metro areas and serves primarily locals, it would be close to impossible to administer some visitors in free and others pay. As for the golf cart, our insurance specifies that we are not to allow any non employee to operate or ride in park vehicles. Maybe as the owner I would take that chance, buy I don't empower my employees to make that decision. You have a well earned reputation on this site, and it isn't a good one. However, this may be a new low, even for you.... Actually based on prior posts I certainly would frequent her (IIRC) campground if I ever was in the area and knew which one it was. and what part of "As for the golf cart, our insurance specifies that we are not to allow any non employee to operate or ride in park vehicles. Maybe as the owner I would take that chance, buy I don't empower my employees to make that decision." was it difficult for you to understand? bumpy I don't think anyone on here said They had to cater to the peopleThey had to cater to the people...but a reasonable accommodation WOULD HAVE LET THE PEOPLE PICK HER UP AT HER SITE.....AND WOULD HAVE CAUSED NO HARDSHIP TO THE OWNERS/MANAGERS OF THE CAMPGROUND...and the ADA is about reasonable accommodations ....now if they abused it....then it would have ended...Chuck

Thanks we liked Indian Brave campground in Harmony,Pa which is north of Pittsburg,it is about 29 miles depending exactly where...Chuck

RE: Bad experience Lancaster KOA

Recently stayed at this KOA. Wife has mobility issues & uses cane/ walker. Asked if our friends could come to pick us up without paying $18 fee- NO. Could you take her in golf cart to gate - NO, it's for work. Can you please make an exception. NO. So, we walked. Will never stay there again. You definitely have a good case to file a violation with the State of Pa on the ADA laws..they are obligated to afford you some leeway and apparantly they didn't..but she must be documented...Chuck

RE: baltimore to maine

Dahkota's route, except I did I-81 to Scranton last year and it was construction and rough road between Harrisburg and Scranton. Maybe some local will chime in and update the road conditions there, but if not, I recommend either I-78 to I-287 over the Tappan Zee to I-684 to I-84 or I-80 to US209 to I-84. Also the eastern end of I-84 in PA had some bridge construction. Like Dahkota's route with 83 to Harrisburg;81 to the 78/81 split... .go 78 to rt 22 thru Allentown to rt 33 north 33 north to 80 east to exit 309 and then rt 209 to 84 84 to 90 90 to 495 t0 95 Chuck

RE: CG recommendations Florida panhandle

DH and I are planning an extended trip in our 32'MH with slides, with toad. Looking to stay anywhere from 3-5 days anywhere between Pensacola area and Panama City Region. Would appreciate your experiences at CGs in this area. Our schedule is flexible, should be in the area between last week of Sep to first week of October. Looking for FHU, waterfront not necessary. Would like level site with enough room to enjoy being outside under our awning. Passport America would be great, but Good Sam also fine. Would actually prefer not shady so we can use our sat tv. Thanks. i would look at Santa Rosa Beach in Navarre;Camping On The Gulf in Destin;Topsail In Santa Rosa Beach;HoHum in Carrabelle(my first choice) ;and Governor's campground in St Joes,Florida...Chuck

RE: Beverly Beach Camptown Flagler Beach FL

We stayed a month one winter, and the sites are really really close. We were in a site for a few days that would not let us open the slide completely, that is tight. We moved a few sites down where we could open all slides but no way could you even think about opening an awning. I don't know where your going to find room for a tent unless you out it out on the beach. It was a nice place to sit right on the ocean but not a lot of space for each rv. If there is any wind at all those awning clamps won't help...we had 5 motorhomes there and put up 3 easy ups..tied together,tied to the motorhome wheels and picnic tables and concrete rebar stakes and one night wind started to blow and lost the whole mess...all went in the dumpster..... Can use that easy up on the beach..the sea wall should cut the wind and give you shade on the beach but it is really nice campground...right on the beach and ay night can sit and see the shrimp boats out at sea......have a great trip down..Chuck

RE: Suggestions for North Eastern States Please

CT ideas: Guilford - Henry Whitfield House Museum - ca. 1639, also Thomas Griswold House, Hyland House, town dock, town center - definitely a colonial town. Madison - Lenny and Joe's Fish Tale Restaurant Gillette Castle - East Haddam, CT Groton, CT - USS Nautilus Museum Mystic - Mystic Seaport as mentioned NH ideas: Laconia area - Lake Winnepesaukee - day trip on the M/V Mt. Washington White Mountains - loop Kancamagus Highway/Rte 112 to Conway, up through Crawford Notch (Mt Washington Hotel, Mt. Washington Cog Railway) on Rte 302, south on Rte 3 thru Franconia Notch (The Flume, Cannon Mtn. Tramway, The Basin) back to start of the "Kanc" in Lincoln. Watch for Moose! Evening Moose tours from Lincoln... LOTS to see in NH! ST try Bill's Fish at the sining bridge...on the madison/Clinton line...really hands above Lenny's

RE: I-75 From Cincinnati to Port Charlotte Fl.

We are leaving from Columbus, sent away for a Trip-Tik from AAA they routed us down I77, I26, I95, I4, US-17. Wondering what is wrong with I75? I personally like to go down thru Birmingham,Ala to Montgomery then thru Dothan,Ala to I-10 over to rt 98/27 down to Ocala then on to I-75...I realize it is about a 100 miles longer but just seems to be a more relaxing ride....and it isn't cause I'm shy to drive thru big cities...Chuck

RE: Dingy towing braking systems

Yo Gamecock ( I'll not holds that against you ! ). When you determine what system you want, and if it's a self install such as the Brake Buddy or similar, check out EBay as you can pick some up for way less than list price. Congrats to the Lady Gamcocks ( you do realize how odd that sounds ) on another fine year. Go Tigers!!! I have been using the RV1Brake system...for 2 yrs and it works well, small enough to store ,easy to put in..less than 5 minutes...great Customer Service..Chuck GO NOLES AND LADY HUSKIES..(2 kids..2 schools)
