    Problem is all the roadside cameras. I feel like Big ( blue) brother is always watching, even at the truck stops.

    Just get a free EZ Pass from New York State and hook up the account to a credit or debit card.

    I'll try to avoid any tolls on the way to Carlisle. Not going to be racing to get there.
    On the subject on the cost of tolls, when driving to CT last month to pick up the 69 Imperial, the toll to cross the George Washington Bridge from NJ to NY was insane....$16 bucks. :wtf:

    ....so if you live in NJ, and had to commute to NY everyday for employment, it would cost a person over $3000 a year?? Whoa!

    More, you'd likely pay for parking too. The cost of living is much higher there, you'd be earning a bunch more. (Not enough to make it worth it)

    All states charge differently for ez-pass. Some just charge a deposit for the transmitter and hit you for monthly and annual fees. The discount varies by state also. Shop around.
    If cudahunter is driving from Colorado, Illinois might be the place to buy one. They charge $30 one time and no annual fees. There is enough time to get one by mail and get it set up.

    It's a LOT bigger bill PA. Easier just to get a pass from any given state except PA.
    Yep, fucking up the Ohio pike now pretty soon my tolls for the year will be zero.

    Regarding toll pass systems, I got a lot of input from this post on Faceplant:

    Hey guys, does anyone have any tips for coming up from Eastern Virginia. I am planning on heading through VA, Maryland, and then into PA and straight up to Carlisle. My plan is to mostly avoid large highways and interstates, but I do plan on using US-13 and 17. If needed, I can post a picture of my planned trip.
    Thanks,
    77newyorker440

    Virginia has a large Eastern area from Virginia Beach to the Washington DC area. I don't know where US-13 is but unless you want to do back roads for the entire trip why not take 17 to 66 to I-81?

    A nice scenic and historic route ......... Follow US 17 to Warrenton VA, pick up US 15 and go N through Maryland and to Gettysburg PA. Then US 30 to Chambersburg. Cross over I 81 and continue to US 11, go N to Carlisle.

    You may want to allow a day in Gettysburg if you haven't already done so.

    I agree with @bluefury361 re: how to get to Gettysburg. After that, however, I suggest a much nicer road to Carlisle.

    In Gettysburg, take the old MD-15 — it runs parallel to the new 15 and there is no comparison. Quiet, beautiful, a true delight to drive on. Google maps calls it business 15 but it is a great country road.

    In York Springs, make a left on MD-94 and drive till it merges with MD-34 just before Mt Holly Springs. Then drive on 34 to Carlisle.

    Following my suggestion will add 10 to 15’ to your driving time (depending on how fast you’d go on the highways) but will add loads more to your enjoyment.

    Hi everyone. Quirey Quality Dedign, Dale’s Cuda shop and Gary Goers will be represented at Carlisle. Please call ahead if you need something delivered. With raw material issues preorders are important.

    The Amish country has a lot to offer and if you go there, you have to eat family style at Good & Plenty. Best fried chicken I have ever had.
