Hey Dan, I can tell you about a few tolls (depending on the route you decide on) that I know of between Hershey and CT. Interstates 76, 95, 87, 90 are toll roads. Eastbound river crossings (Delaware River on I78, I80 & Hudson River I84,) are toll free (they'll get you on the way back westbound). Except Tappan Zee (I87/287) & NYC crossings, I think they're the other way around.

If it were me, I would take US 15 north to I81 (Harrisburg) north to I84 (Scranton) east all the way into Mass. (then pick your route to Plymouth, unsure of tolls out there). Less tolls and cheaper to cross rivers

A variation of that route is I81 to I78 into N.J. then I287 north to I87 (toll) (N.Y, N.J border) north to I84 (Newburgh, NY) east. (Less mountainous travel)

If you travel the toll roads, they'll either get you periodically or when you get on or off an exit (NY).

Many ways to get there some with a some without (many) tolls.

Pa. has a new law. Tolls in Pa pay for highways through out Pa. They prob. paid for the TP 100 times by now. Note, if at all possible use Tappinzee to NY rather than Goerge Washington Bridge. Three times the toll to cross GW than Tapp. brdg.

I have 2 ipass/ezpass. A white one when I have just the truck (white) and one for when I have the 5ver on. Significant toll difference. For example $1.80 with the truck, and truck/trailer is $6.50. We can get basic ipass at jewel/osco here in Illinois. The combo has to be mailed or picked up at an designated toll stop.

KyDan - Enjoy Bar Harbor; it's a beautiful place. If you're taking a dog with you, you'll find it to be a VERY dog-friendly place. Many of the stores have water bowls outside, restaurants with outside seating allow you to bring your dog in with you, even found a cruise that allows well-behaved dogs.

This is the problem with many other states' E-ZPasses -- you need at least two. Get the PA Turnpike EZ-Pass, stick it on your windshield, forget about it and you will get charged the correct toll no matter how many axles you have or how much you weigh. I have never been charged incorrectly.

I cannot talk about the tolls beyond PA because I do jot know but x100 on the PA ezpass. We have had two (one for each car ) for 10 years, same ones. They work great, refill as needed and safe time. My mother, who feared the Cia would track her refused to get one. We met up with them on 95 in southern DE along the road. We got home 2 hours before they did because we would use the high speed lanes and they needed to stop and pay! That made it all worth it.

To me that is just a part of the journey!

90 % of the roads I have been on in the last two years I have not been on before.
