RE: Routing to Lebanon PA

I looked up a route to Lebanon PA from just southwest of Boston MA. I looked in Good Sam routing and it took me Rt 90 to 84 to 15 to 91 to 95 to the GW Bridge!!!!! I do not want to go over the GW bridge with a 35 ft fifth wheel AND on the map it gives you it warns of low clearance of 8 ft I think it said. Now my GPS which is a Garmin RV GPS gave the same routing so this worries me IF there is a low overpass but also what are they thinking sending me over the GW Bridge? What is the best routing? Someone said 90 to 84 to 287 to 78 I think it was but where to get on these routes( I know where to get on 84 but the others? Leaving tomorrow morning early so hope someone reads this tonight. Thanks in advance. Really, best way now is 84 to Newburgh,NY..take 87 south to Sufferin,NY....then 287 to 78 west.....to Lebanon....84 in Pa has much road work being done..Chuck

RE: Good places for Overnight btw Milford and New London CT?

We'll be heading to Cape Code this weekend. I'm good with my route (78 to 287, Tappan Zee Bridge, 95) I think. I drive in the evening and then stop at night. I usually use Cracker Barrel for overnights, but in CT, there are only 2 on my route, and one is too early to stop, and the other might be too late.....Milford CT might be too soon, and Coventry, RI might be stretching it (almost 6 hours into the trip). I'd like to have a backup option between them just in case I'm beat and can't make it more than 4-4.5 hours (or we get a late start, which often happens). I've searched through tons of rest area threads, and there is a Pilot, but it's also pretty far into the trip. There appear to be a lot of rest area threads that say it's okay to overnight there (we'd be there between midnight to 6-7am)but they aren't recent. Anyone stop in there recently? Nearby walmarts? Thanks! Sorry meant to tell you that going up 95...Foxwoods Casino is closer to 95 than The Sun...also has free parking...Chuck

Thanks! I would do the 84 to 9 route regardless of what the traffic reports say.....best you can get going that way.....we go 84 all the way to 90 in Sturbridge ,Mass..then 90 to 495 right out to the Cape,,,15 miles farther but what a great ride...but each to his or her own But...right next to Atlantic Oaks and on the bike trail.also is Arnolds...both a seafood rest and Ice cream shop and mini golf......please don't miss it their fish is probably the best on the Cape.....

RE: Anderson - Clemson (South Carolina) RV Park

I need help. Looking for a 'nice' RV Park in the Anderson-Clemson area. 'Nice' for me means full hookups for a long term stay in a well kept park in a good location. Old guy so peace and quiet is preferred over the delightful sounds of happy children. try Cross creek in senaca

RE: campground suggestions on I 81 in Va

The I-81 campgrounds we normally stop at on the way from Upstate NY to Florida in January are the KOA in Jonestown, PA, Falling Waters CG, Falling Waters, WV, Shenandoah Valley CG, Mt Jackson, VA, and Ft Chiswell CG, Max Meadows, VA. Not all of them every trip of course, but we've found them all to be pleasant places to overnight, each with its own favorite features. We,also use those 4 campgrounds...and they are as good as you stated...another we found is Lee-Hi campground off exit 197..in Va...located behind a truck stop but not so they keep you hear it....a small c/g with maybe 9 or so pull thrus....have stayed away from Candyhill since the new owners have it.....Chuck

RE: campground suggestions on I 81 in Va

normally when we travel south from Upstate NY we go through NJ and take the eastern shore and over the CBBT before connecting up with I95 in Emporia. I want to try the I84 to I81 to I64 to I95 route when we go to DW in October. Would appreciate some campground recommendations convenient to I81 and north of New Market. THX I think A-Jack hit it right on the head....we travel that route most of the time and it is great.....I also have seen that campground he talked about and plan on using it this year....only thing is ,I go 81 to I-66 to Rt 17...not sure that is what he meant...Chuck

RE: Mohegan Sun Casino at Pocono Downs

To anyone going near Mohegan Sun Casino at Pocono Downs in Wilkes Barre, PA., we highly recommend stopping for a night in their parking lot. It's a great casino and the harness races are a lot of fun. Evenings are cool. The live entertainment is not bad. Buffet is pretty good. Several cafes and bars. Down I-81 from Wilkes Barre, take Highway 315 South. Park in lot D. Cool place. No hassle. Park in Lot d or C...info I had before said Lot c?...Chuck

RE: New Hampshire Rt 112 through White Mountains

We're planning a Sept/Oct trip through Vt and NH, Rt 112 looks to be scenic but maybe pretty twisty. How is the road for a small 5er between I93 through the mountains to US 302 (we're planning to head to Mt Washington). Thanks, Doug Doug, it is a great ride..we did it last year with a 43 ft and 31 ft motorhome towing jeep cherokee ..just not a fast ride but not a bad ride..... if you have problems with campgrounds...there is a new one-2 yrs old - in Alton,NH..called Turtle Kraal......nice wide open sites good rodes to get in and out....50 miles to Old Orchard beach...35 mins to Portsmouth

RE: I95 in CT - I need input from those familiar

To avoid the New haven area, there is big road work replacing bridges. No time is a good time. How about rt95S to rt9N you get on rt9 in Old Saybrook. Take it all the way to rt84 West, Highway all the way. Sometimes a slow down in Middletown ct. during rush hr. I'd use this rt 9 as Vet Man said..nice road...on rt 9 when you get to I-91 take 91 south to I-691 over to I-84..roads marked a little better and quicker then I would stay on 84 into Newburgh,NY..no backup on the Newburgh,NY take I-87 south to Sufferin,NY and take I-287 to I-78...about 45 miles ..stay on 78 to 81 and then in Harrisburg,Pa..pickup I-83 right to the DC area Chuck

RE: Conn rest stop at exit 1 on 84

We are heading to Gatlinburg today. Getting late start and need somewhere to stay heading south around Danbury. I know the rest area is great but it's on the north bound side. Anybody know how to get there while heading south bound on 84. And then in the morning getting back on the south bound. We are in a 45' MH towing a truck. there is an exit to get off going westbound...goes left under the hwy into the rest area and then you return same way to continue on...Chuck

RE: New Hampshire White Mountains - Saco River Camping Area

Some friends and us are planning a trip in late August to the area of the White Mountains in NH, staying at the Saco River Camping Area in Conway, NH. We will be traveling from North Central, PA. Google Maps is indicating that the shortest and fastest way to go is up I-88 from Binghamton, NY area to the Albany/Troy, NY then across Vermont Route 7 and NH Route 9 to I-93. Routes 7 and 9 are definitely not interstate style highways and it has been years since I have traveled them. (I did a couple of times 20+ years ago in a car.) As I recall they are fairly crooked, mountainous roads, and I am a little concerned about traveling them pulling my 38 feet Fifth Wheel. Problem is if I map the trip via interstate highways only, it adds more than an hour and more than 100 miles to the trip. There's just no easy way to get there from here! Has anybody out there made this trip in more recent years? Should I go that fastest shortest way on the secondary roads or should I avoid them and stick to the interstates? Further does anybody have any recent experience at Saco River Camping Area other than what I can find online? We surely would appreciate any help or suggestions anyone with experience with this route or area might have. JUJCM, we are in Alton,NH ,as I write this....and drove the jeep to No Conway yesterday so the DW could visit some outlets the way I came this trip is probably the way I will go to Conway next time also... came up 495 to 93 to exit 11 in NH...took rt 3 to rt 28 to Alton...a few little towns but nothing major...mostly good 2 lane all the way...can stay on rt 28 to Wolfsboro to rt 16...then 16 all the way into the campground...not a bad trip at all....just 2 lane all the way but moved right along...Chuck

RE: New Hampshire White Mountains - Saco River Camping Area

Check your map, other routes suggested will make you cross the mountains. Yes its a pretty ride, I would take my rt. will keep you off the mountains, you can go visit them after trailer is dropped off. I have never seen a rig like yours on the Kancamagus, been there many times. No its not impossible to make it, would not want to do that to my rig. Vet Man..... you must have gone over with your eyes shut tight.....went over with this 43 ft last year,,,never ever even broke a sweat....the Kancamagus is a beautiful ride..not the least bit bad.....Chuck Vet Man, Didn't mean to flame anyone....but I also wouldn't want to put fear in anyone about the road being too mountainous and never seeing a rig like that on that road....when tractor trailers and 5th wheels bigger than I , come over daily....just was kidding you maybe a little timid in the "hills" sorry you took it so badly...Chuck
