RE: Planning a cross country trip - questions

Thanks to all of you for your input. We are very flexible as far as this trip goes. It is still very early in the planning stage. The trailer gets new tires this Spring (had a blow out last fall and rightfully caught hell from my mechanic for not changing them earlier). All financial things are already on line and most are on auto pay so that is not a problem. So we will just need to sit down and plan this thing. And it may be split into different years too, one area one year, one another. Keep that input coming though and thanks again.

Planning a cross country trip - questions

I am planning to retire in the very near future. My wife already is retired. We are discussing taking a cross country trip in the next year or so but are somewhat wondering if it is a good idea. We currently have a 35' Flagstaff 831FLSS that we tow with a 2500HD GMC. That is not a problem. While we realize that there are much larger rigs out there, ae there any issues with finding suitable campgrounds along the way that we can fit it in? We would be starting from our home in Central Virginia. We do certainly plan to plan the trip but will appreciate any advice any one can give us, including the possibility of traveling with an old cat. Thanks in advance.

RE: Route 29

US 29 is 4 lanes from the NC border to I66 in Northern VA. Sections are interstate grade and others are excellent 4 lanes. 60 mph most of the way except 65 on bypasses. Lynchburg bypass is 70 mph. Worst part is around Charlottesville. No bypass there. They like you to ride through town. If you are coming from the south, I 64 is on the southern end of Charlottesville and will be no problems. From the north, well that is a different story. Quite a bit of stop and go for a few miles.

RE: Dead microwave

I can not help you find one save take your measuring device to Best Buy BUT I can tell you LG or Goldstar are brands to avoid. In my not very humble opinion. I know. They are trash. We have a good sized counter in the kitchen area. We may get a decent sized one and sit it there and use the open hole for cabinet space. Just need to fit a door over it that closely matches the rest of the cabinets. We will just have to make sure the microwave is properly secured for travel.

RE: Dead microwave

Microwaves are so cheap, a broken one only demands to be landfilled. Yes they are. Our city has electronic recycling three times a year and the next one is in mid October so that is where this one is going.

RE: Dead microwave

measure your size and head for wal mart. They didn't have one that small. At least ours didn't and we have two close by.

RE: Dead microwave

Most microwaves have an internal fuse. Did you check that? It will run for 2 seconds and cut off. Clock is still working on it.

Dead microwave

Our microwave died on our last trip. It is a built in Magic Chef MCD991ARB. I have pulled it out. Does anyone know of a suitable replacement? We will be limited on size due to its location. Thanks in advance.
