RE: i40 between West from Asheville, NC

Thanks for the insights on I40 travel. Alternate routes would have extended my travel time by a min. of 2 hours. I40 will be my route.

i40 between West from Asheville, NC

Will be traveling I40 west from Asheville, NC to Knoxville, TN in a few days. I understand I40 is one lane west and East before the Tennessee line. Anyone taken that route recently and if so, how slow is the go? Thanks

RE: Having Second Thoughts

We have some unused Disney passes, so sometime in December, we started looking for a place to stay near Disney (Orlando) over spring break which for us in next week. The only place we found with availability was Winter Garden RV Resort, so we booked a premium site, with thoughts of continuing to look at nearby state parks for cancellations. Well, no luck so we are on for Winter Garden- but... I starting to have second thoughts about this park and even going to Disney given current events due to the following: The "Resort", while providing full hookups, has all grass sites. Pictures of the CG seem to indicate sites in close proximity, and there are many seasonal and permanent campers. RVParkReviews isn't making anything better with lots of so - so reviews. I've read that Disney has told some workers to stay home. I'm not an alarmist, but I'm beginning to have a sinking feeling that although I'm getting to use my camper, It just won't be a fun trip. We are visiting Fort Wilderness in early June to use the remainder of the passes and experience the camp ground, but I'm finding myself on the fence. If I cancel at this point, I'd be fine with the one night fee not being refunded. Anyone have any experience with this resort? Would you want to go to Disney over spring break? It’s being reported DisneyWorld Florida will close Sunday through the end of the month.

RE: Pulling with 1/2 ton

Thank you all for the responses!! My 1/2 ton is rated to pull 9,400. Was considering the new 1/2 Silverado with max tow package rated at 11,300. It is just DW and I nothing unusual as far as packing except two bicycles just struggling on what to do GMC Sierra 1/2 ton 6.2L with Max Tow Pkg. 28 ft. TT loaded for a cross country trip out west...weighed in 7000 Lbs +/-. No problem pulling or braking. If truck is maintained to near spec level and you know it’s limitations, the set up and pulling of a properly loaded rig will allow you to travel safely. It’s just me and my wife, and two small dogs. BTW...looked for my truck for over 6 months...found a 2016 Texas Edition Sierra in Charlotte NC, 90 miles north of our house. Crazy thing, we retired to S.C. from Houston, TX,, and end up with a Texas Edition Sierra located in NC. I guess it was meant to be!
