That's especially neat because everyone has to drive through it on the wrong side of the road.... LOL


Been there and done that.....

I found out very quickly this past summer that trailers are not allowed on the Taconic State Pkwy....Pulling my 13' Scamp, I had the honor of a trooper pulling me over to inform me of NY State parkway rules... I must say, though, he was a sweetheart, as he gave me a verbal warning, told me the route I would need to take to get where I was going and then escorted me off the parkway and on my way.

Four levels? Five levels? Do you need oxygen? No thank you. I live on a dirt road. This year the town replaced the culvert. That's about as "life in the fast lane" as I want to get. Raz

What about tunnels? Someone told me we shouldn't go through the I-93 tunnel in Boston because of the propane.

Coming from Maine we stop at the Cracker Barrel in Milford Conn. off 95 ex 40. Have dinner (late) stay in the camper and go in and have breakfast in the morning. Then back on 95 to 287 to the Tappan Zee Bridge avoiding the G W. My dream is to walk across the Tapp an watch the construction of the new bridge. Love looking at that stuff.
Happy travels

From Maine

Deb, it's just an elevation thing. Driving just less than an hour and you'll be in warm weather again. This is what I love about Arizona..... go play in the snow and return home in high 60 degrees in about an hour.

Talking Connecticut is forward looking! LOL

From the CT website:

"The following are prohibited from entry upon and use of the highway right of way of the parkways and other limited access state highways:
(e) Vehicles drawn or propelled other than by motor power;"

So Teslas and other electrics are the only vehicles permitted on Parkways?

My car is not propelled by a motor, it is propelled by an engine!

The "spaghetti junction" photos make me very glad that dear wife and I live in Idaho. To my knowledge we don't approach the level of complication indicated in those pictures. With maybe two or three exceptions our height level of junctions is limited to one level and is generally referred to as an "overpass" lol. Lee

Let me introduce you to a junction that's only on one level, but is impressively complex. It does have a proper name but even the local council have accepted that it is known as the 'Magic Roundabout' after kid's animation show. It has five mini-roundabouts (traffic circles) joined together in one big contra-rotating roundabout:



It handles a huge traffic volume and works well, but is a little daunting for first time users. It' in Swindon, Britain - if you want to program your GPS never to go there......

While we're off topic a bit, I will take a chance to vent about the "Bermuda triangle for GPS" yhat we encountered last night. Or was it this morning?

The sky was already lightening as we thought we had closed in on the River Falls of the Gorge campground in the State Forest heaven of NE Georgia. The Google Maps, verbal directions, atlas, & GPS tracking had led us up and down and around tightly winding roads off of I-23/441. When the roads in the fog & rain, mud & fallen leaves seemed more suitable for wild boar than our Camplite/Frontier setup, we got out to assess the situation. Oh how a little help would have been nice! But we were alone with pup in tow to figure it out.

Two of the roads were blocked by gates sporting security signs. A third promised greater treachery than we had already experienced. Hubby advised we turn around. We also took some time to reconfigure our brake controller for off-roading it; 4WD got switched to 4-Lo. Indeed, something simply wasn't right. A lovely 5-point turn with trailer got us pointed back to the highway, 2 hours after our bunny trail excursion had begun.

At last we got back to the main road and more bars appeared on my smartypants phone. I programmed the address another way andcwe found the campground right away in a clearing in yhe fog: 1 mile in the opposite direction of the State Park sign we had been given as a landmark! Now it's daylight and the office building is easy to see from the highway. No goat path access needed!

While I have never been to CT, I do have a new respect for obeying local folklore about which roads to take and which ones to avoid! In the end, if you are required to 4-wheel it past a security fence at 5:00 a.m. in the fog & rain, abandon the mmission! But do bring snacks and water eh? Just in case the mud gets too deep. Chances are things will look better after sunrise! From the Tin Can Ranch

SOME... tunnels are posted for no propane, but they are usually the ones that go under waterways.

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge / Tunnels require you to have the propane tanks turned off. We have done that route several times, you have to go through a manned toll booth and they ask you if the tanks are off. After that bridge we encountered another tunnel in the Norfolk VA area where we had to pull into an inspection area for a visual inspection.
