RE: I-64 to I-95 between va beach and washington

We try to avoid I64 through the tunnel and onto Richmond, even though we only live 3 miles from I64 in Virginia Beach -- we take US460 then I295 if heading north. Even at 15 miles longer, it is less frustrating. I know the road very well, as when I was working I usually drove to DC for a meeting about once a week. Returning south on Fridays was a killer. Traffic is better after the majority of the tourists leave.

RE: Cherrystone - tornado

Very sad. Local news said 3 dead. This storm came without much warning. News also said a tractor trailer was flipped on US 13.

RE: Picky Choosing

We love our Reflection, but you can't sit at the table or get to some of the kitchen with the slides in. You can get to fridge.

RE: Question on Rt 13/Chesapeake Bay vs Inland to Cape Hatteras

In our experience, you will encounter more traffic headaches on I95 and I64.

RE: Grand Design 303 Question?

We are very happy with our 303. We've spent 70 nights and towed 4800 miles so far. We changed to 16" LT tires as we had done on our previous rig.

RE: Syracuse Campgrounds

There is nothing close with full hookups. Verona State Park has no hookups. Some of the campgrounds around Sylvan Beach might work, but it might be an interesting drive to get to them. If you extend your range, you will probably be happy staying at Turning Stone in Verona. We stayed there last year to visit family. It wouldn't be too bad a drive to SU, since there is no way you will be taking the 5er up on the hill anyway.

RE: Open ranger roam 337 vs keystone cougar

Definitely agree with the advice to check out the owner's forums. We searched for nearly a year and ended up with a Grand Design Reflection. Love it. It just felt much better than the Open Range we looked at. After owning a Laredo, we were very hesitant to even look at the Cougar. You might like the Reflection 337.

RE: I-90 to rte 20, CT to upstate NY

Not sure about the low clearance just west of Albany. Up and down hill. Very pretty. Don't speed, especially through small towns.

RE: Starting my research

Don't forget to check out the owners forums. We eliminated the Columbus due to weight, and are happy with our new rig.

RE: Williamsburg VA to Virginia Beach

The US17 bridge is somewhat narrow. Tunnels are a better choice. Tunnel on 664 is newer and more rounded so you don't feel as closed in. Not sure of size restrictions, but you could also take the Jamestown ferry then continue south to US460.

RE: Shenandoah Nat'l. Park question

Also Lynchburg KOA a bit further south, puts you on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Will post a review after we stay there again next weekend.

RE: Type of Camper Poll

We are social or friendly, and have found people tend more to social at FHU parks whereas state or COE tend more to friendly. Travelers seem to socialize more than weekenders who are trying to unwind from work. Some of our best memories are the people we have met and visited with.

RE: tired of looking

So far we love our Grand Design Reflection 303RLS. We have spent about 60 nights in it since December. For us, it hit the sweet spot in length and weight, and was one of the few that we found with night stands on both sides of the bed. We have a residential queen mattress, my 6'4" DH is comfortable in the shower, and our theater seating faces the TV. Pictures on the Grand Design website are pretty accurate -- there is less room on the curbside of the bed, so that nightstand is smaller. There is still room for a clock radio and my glasses. Books fit on the shelf above the bed. http://i60.tinypic.com/2kopjb.jpg Yes, I made a dog bed cover to match the decor. http://i62.tinypic.com/r1bznd.jpg

RE: US 501 east of I81

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like 130 to 501. We have stayed at the KOA/Wildwood lots of times. Roy is correct about that turn -- but if you are in the area, it is easier to take the Parkway from 130 across the river to 501. We usually stay on the east side of the mountains or drive over without towing.

RE: myrtle beach sc to rochester

Ray, Are you interested in history? Scenery? Virginia would be a good interim spot. We have taken US 29 from Greensboro NC north to Charlottesville. That is a good route and will get you west to I81 and avoid cities. There is a KOA in Charlottesville; we have not stayed there. Anywhere along I81 in Virginia would put you close enough to ride some of the Blue Ridge Parkway and/or Skyline Drive. Gettysburg would be a bit further than half way home. If you have not yet been, you might want to stop and see the Corning Glass Museum. What is your timeframe? We will know more about another possible campground for you to stop at by the middle of next week. Send me a PM if you want more info. Kay

US 501 east of I81

We will be towing our 34' fiver with our diesel PU from near Staunton VA to the Lynchburg KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground). How is towing US 501 east from Buena Vista? Would you do it? The DH grew up in Lynchburg and says 'no problem'. It is an extra 40 miles to go over I64 and down 29 (plus you have to go down Afton Mt). We travel 501 through Big Island to get down to Lynchburg/Forest, but not towing. Thanks in advance.

RE: Rock Canyon vs. Spring Creek in Montana

We stayed at Spring Creek a few years ago. It is a short but pretty drive from the interstate. At that time, we had a 30' fiver and the site they assigned was just big enough -- and very nice since it backed up to the river. One thing I remember is the laundry -- the washers looked ok, the dryers looked nasty but this is the only campground I can think of that had a clothesline for the campers.

RE: Maps

I recommend the Motor Carrier's Road Atlas for planning, and the AAA state maps for more detailed navigation. You will also find some special series AAA maps (e.g., the Smokies, a great city map for Lexington KY that shows the scenic drives through horse country). I recommend the AAA maps since they are consistent and good to use for navigation. Also, and this is very important, you can get new ones every year or so. You should have relatively recent maps so that road changes are reflected (just as you want a GPS that you can update maps). P.S. My recommendations are based on a degree in Geography and 30 years working in the map making field.
