If you want to miss all the big city traffic and want an easy, scenic drive take I-84 W to I-81 S to I-77 S to Columbia,SC then US 378 E to Myrtle Beach. Not the most direct route but does miss all the major city headaches and most all of the tolls. I go down 91 to 84 west to Newburgh,NY ,then south on 87 to Sufferin,NY and pickup 287 for 45 miles to 78 west ...stay on 78 to 81 west to Winchester,Va and pickup 66 toward DC...to rt 17 around Warrenton,Va to 95 south ,which is just north of Richmond...C

RE: Wisconsin to Fort Wilderness

I would use 231 to Dothan Al, then pick up US 84 and follow it east to US 19 in Thomasville Ga. then go south. Pick up 98/27/19. 27 to Ocala, then 441 south from there. When you get close to Orlando, you're on your own. :) All good roads, with only the occasional small town to deal with. Spent most of my life in Fl and can say with certainty that I-10 and I-75 can be incredibly dangerous, frustrating and often bumper to bumper, so I don't mind taking the scenic route and the extra time to avoid them as much as possible. Most of the side roads I mentioned are 60-65 mph speed limit, which often can be faster than I-75/10. Only drawback is gas stations can be sparse, so plan accordingly. Sorry for the multiple edits.... I use this route all the time with a variation or so....Once you hit Thomasville,you can stay in a campground there called City of Roses...a few permanents but Bill the owner has all in control,so it is more than a decent place to stop for a day or two..then straight down 19 to 27 and i stay on 27 all the way down to Disney...to 192 and int the Fort...Chuck

RE: Providence RI to Jacksonville FL

Thanks for all the info and suggestions. I like Ed C's line of reasoning and think that might be the best for me. Ed c has the route...all good choices..depending on where and when you want to stop....some good campgrounds either route ,also depends on when you go,,,Chuck R

RE: PA to Maine

In a few weeks we will be traveling to Bath, Maine from Reading, PA. We have a 42' fifth wheel. Anyone know which routes to take that might be best. I plan on leaving around 3am to get past the NY traffic in time. WE ARE IN NEW HOLLAND,PA now, I would go I-78 to I-287 north to I-87 north to I-84 east...stay on 84 to Sturbridge,Mass ,get on I-90 east to i-495 north...stay on 495 til connects with 95 north and right up to Maine..... now look, while you are up there...go a little farther to Wisscasst and go to RED'S EATS for the best lost roll there is..C

RE: Wabco 1200 air dryer cartridge question

Just found this by Bendix;; air dryer cartridge should be replaced every year or 100,000 miles. For pick up and delivery operations, or for double- and triple-trailer line haul trucks, every two years or 200,000 miles is recommended. Line haul operations using a single trailer should swap the filter out every three years or 300,000 miles. so the more use,less you have to change it...motorhome use looks as if it should be changed yearly...I do 17k a year and change every other year

RE: South Jersey to Cape Cod

Keep in mind that "Cape Cod" KOA is not on Cape Cod, but a 25 minute drive away. If you plan on visiting the Cape do not attempt that drive Friday afternoon/evening or Saturday morning or leave the Cape on Sunday afternoon/evening. Backups of 5 - 10 miles (seriously) are common. Thanks, I am aware of that we are trying to do a few different areas in Mass and RI and this worked distance and time wise. We would be leaving early Sunday morning to head home, so I think we will be alright. Thanks all for your responses time to recheck the maps. hate to tell you, but all have the same idea..and if it's raining or cloudy, they all leave earlier..listen to the Teacher.....years back,and it hasn't gotten musc better ,same roads, it took us 5 hrs from Hyannis to the Canal.....C

RE: Route from Maine to Gatlinburg? Least traffic?

You can pick up I-84 off the Mass Pike (I-90) and connect with I-81 south. It's rough road and construction areas between Scranton and Harrisburg. We like to cut down US209 through the Delaware Water Gap and connect to I-80 to I-81. Avoid I-95 through New York. No reason to go that way because you're headed for I-81 anyway. if you decide to go this way.....get off 84 at exit 53 in Pa which is the first exit off 84 after you cross the Deleware river from NY state and follow 209 to Milford then thru the nat'l forest...nice ride with pulloffs for lunch or whatever...then take I-80 from exit 309 tand get off exit 302 taking Pa rt 33 to Pa rt 22 to I-78 to I-81 and on down.... Now at exit 53 which is Matamoras,Pa there is a year round campground called Tri-State Campground...which they have expanded in the last year,and is big and wide open...C

RE: South Jersey to Cape Cod

40ft Class A DP. Trying to find the best way to Boston/Cape Cod KOA in Middleborough MA. Do not want to go over the George Washington Bridge. I will be travelling on Sunday both ways, so the toll on the Tappen Zee is considered off peak $10.00 not too bad. I was thinking NJ Turnpike to exit 10 to RT 287 over the Tappen Zee and back on 95 for the rest of the trip. Not sure about the Connecticut traffic on Sunday. Suggestions appreciated. Thanks in advance. I would go over the Tap..then up 684 to 84..take 84 to 90 in Sturbridge to 90 to 495 straight onto the Cape...I'm sure its longer but I would think less traffic....C

RE: Need Overnight stop I77 Southbound south of Charlotte

South of the Border has a nice campground with full hook ups and pull through sites. It's right next to I-95.Here's a review from campground reviews:This was our second stop at Pedro's Campground, and I have to admit that I was glad we stopped on our way to Pennsylvania from Hilton Head Island. I am normally a light sleeper, but I hardly heard any traffic noise from I-95 and had a good nights rest. The pull-through site was extra large, the utilities were good, and the entire campground was clean and neat. I would bet that only 10% of the sites were occupied on a Friday night which made it even nicer. I would definitely stop here again. We camped at South of the Border in a Travel Trailer.It's $29 a night for full hookups. They also have a restaurant and gas station. It is a great spot but probably 4 hrs away from where he wants to stop...C
