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

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)

RE: A little generator help

Need a little info guys. My neighbor just got a older class A with a Onan 5000. He says it starts and instantly dies. He has by passed fuel pump, replaced filter and plugs. He ran out of ideas so I took a look and as soon as you take your finger off start button it kills ignition. I bypassed low oil switch and it made no change. I need suggestions. A few years back we had two of those onans' in 2 seperate RV's do that , on both it was the voltage regulator.....seems the mice had built a nest all around and on top of it and when started the heat backup just killed them...Chuck

RE: Cape Cod to central PA

This summer we are vacationing in MA. On our trip home we are intending on traveling from the base of Cape Cod to central PA. The total travel distance for the day would be 425 mi. Looking at the attached map, which route is the best, and am can I make good time on the routes? We are used to wide open space driving, I am a little afraid that this is to long of a drive considering the terrain and east coast traffic? What do you east coast people think? http://i1213.photobucket.com/albums/cc471/tslarson7040/trip1.png Living about half way to each location and traveling to the Cape often,I would come off the Cape to 495...to 90 to 84 in Sturbridge...stay on 84 thru Waterbury..the construction area is only about 15 minutes as long as it isn't rush hour....then get off 84 at exit 53 in Pa and take rt 209 down thrum Milford,Pa thru the Nat'l park to Stroudsburg and get on I-80 there to your destination....can stay at Tri-State C/G at exit 53 where you pick uo 209...Chuck

RE: Looking for nice park near Wilkes-Barre,PA

Thank you for the responses. Maybe I will boondock in the lot and find a park on the way back to CT with full hookups for dumping purposes. If you are looking for a campground, there is a decent one at exit 53 off 84 in Pa just before you cross the Delaware river into NY...Tri-State campground...bottom of ramp, straight thru light and down the road pass Home Depot to the end...normally you can see it from 84 as you go past...OR..if you just want a dump area....there is one in the rest area coming into Ct on 84 Chuck

RE: Finding places to stay

Have not done any traveling since 2008, will be going on a long trip from SW Fl to the NW, via Yellowstone starting in May. No particular route in mind other than Mt Rushmore. Is there a good or better source for finding places to stay as we travel? Wal Mart and rest areas are ok here and there, but have small tanks (Toyota RV) so will need facility's at least every 3 days. Jim Jim, we like allstays if we know the towns we might be going thru....and then rvparky if just rolling along...can put in location fill out the filters to use and it will give the location along the route.....all on our phones...Chuck

RE: Chattanooga Holiday Travel Park

We stayed there a year and a half ago. Very tight sites. We saw a class A that couldn't extend both the awning and slide. Our 5 camp chairs couldn't fit around the fire ring without going onto the neighboring site. I agree very tight sites..we had a pull thru and pulled in,but with the trees and other rv's..had to unhook next day and back out...Chuck
