RE: Maine to Florida

Headed to Florida in April towing 30ft TT. What is best rout to avoid GW bridge. Lost my father few years ago so miss his route advice. Thanks for suggestions. Cannon, most of the routes are similar....I would take 95 to 495 to 90 to 84 to Newburgh,NY..then 87 south to Sufferin and 287 for 45 miles to 78 west to 81 to Winchester,Va....pickup I-66 for 25 miles to Va rt 17 thru Warrenton,Va to 95 below DC but just above Richmond....not sure where you are going in Florida,so can't help there...Chuck

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

RE: Georgia to Maine

Hello fellow travelers and photographers Once again I am hear seeking your knowledge, experience and tips for a relatively short adventure (3 weeks) - round trip taking different routes heading to explore Maine from Georgia. Driving thru the southern states quickly to explore more of PA, NY, VT MOSTLY MAINE, NH, MA, CT and back down south again. Hoping to explore lakes in Maine from the northern most stop on the trip and back down coastal regions looking to see how we like it there in mid-late Summer. I use Furkot to plan our trips and Trip Advisor, Campendium, and here to get reviews. We travel with dogs and like privacy and views. Photography, quaint towns, local cuisine and history a plus. We are in a 41' Class A DP so always looking out for easiest approach and plenty of space. Looking forward to reading what you have to say as you guys have never steered me wrong (pun intended). Thank you in advance, Lynn It's hard to plan your entire trip ,not knowing exactly where you want to go Pa.....ya have Gettysburg,the Pa Dutch country and Metro Philly and all it's history Maine....probably Kitteybukport and the Bush compound,Arcadia park....Boothbay Harbor,Red's Eate in Wiscassett Ct...Mystic Seaport NH...Portsmith Harbor,Quaint NE seaport, north Conway area And these are just a few,I'm sure more people will jump in...Chuck

RE: Northeast campground

Hi All, Due to a schedule change we are just now trying to make a camping reservation for mid-August. We are in Connecticut and we have a week off. We have a hybrid and, ideally, we'd like to find a place with full hookups, a pool, wifi, cable. We're fine with a pump out service if need be, but we don't want to deal with breaking down to dump the black and grey. Yes, I know we'll be lucky to find anything so far into the season. We started looking in the Finger Lakes area, but have not found the combination we're for. The Watkins Glen KOA would be good, but no vacancies. Any ideas? Vermont might be an idea. Or Pennsylvania. We like natural areas to explore, and local bike trails are good too. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Trying to pick through every campground is getting old fast. Can try Wassamki Springs in Scarbough,Maine not a bad ride and nice area OR I like the Pa Dutch...and would try New Holland-Lancaster KOA in New Holland or Beacon Hill in Intercourse,Pa..my is choice but no kids and then there is Country Haven .....Chuck

RE: Campground on way to disney

I stopped for the night at This One about six weeks ago. They have plenty or pull through sites and I didn't even unhook my 5'er. Check their web site and take a look at how they handle their one night campers. Pretty unique and worked well. If you need to leave earlier than the camper in front of you, pull to right right and drive on out. This is what I did and zero issues - Very Easy. They are south of Lake City on I-75 at exit #399. that's a long way to go from 95 for a overnight stop...don't ya think ?????? chuck

RE: Campground on way to disney

I will be going to ft wilderness in August. Just looking for options for a nice overnight stop either in southern ga or northern fl off of 95 thanks. Great park is at x-1 in Ga ,just before going into Florida....called Country Oaks....call ahead reserve a pull thru ... that exit has about 3 gas stations and 2 truck stops for cheaper fuel before Florida...and then maybe 2 hours to The Mouse....Chuck

RE: Route 84 in Connecticut

Traveling on 84 from Danbury to Mass Pike, do I stay on 84 thru Hartford or go 691-91-84. Traveling with 37' FW. It will be mid morning on a weekday, after rush hour. Thanks Can do either way...the 691 to 91 to 84.....has a steep pull up Southington hill from the entrance onto 91 and then the traffic and the exit from 91 to 84 can be backed up anytime during the day...I find taking 84 straight thru is shorter in miles and in duration and also less aggrevating....but again I lived in Conn all my life...Chuck
