Re: Caravans

I'll be heading down NY Route 81 on Wednesday. If you guys will be taking that route at all, I could meet up with you and caravan the rest of the way.

Re: Caravans

last time i talked to Eric, him and Griz were not going, thats why i'm not going to make it, justpunchit was going to trailer me down with him, since he backed out, i just don't want to drive 5-6 hours by myself.

Re: Caravans

Shame there's no easy way from R.I. to get to I-84 near Waterbury (or I-681 near Meriden). Then you could run a smooth 84 all the way into Scranton to get to I-81 South to Hazleton.

MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better ride (even though a few miles more) than western CT on 95, across the Tappan Zee, 287 down to 80 west through Stroudsburg). That way is going to suck big time anytime during daylight hours, especially later in the afternoon!

Then again, who knows with the way road construction is going on the Interstates these days. Even the normally open runs are getting hosed from time to time.

At least you'll have a nice weekend in Paragon at 2mph.
