boder crossing

Don't carry firewood.

Nor firearms, but it seems firewood is higher on their list.

Interesting there are no restrictions on HOV lanes with a trailer.

It sure cuts down the time but you need to look out for people entering and leaving where they are not supposed to, idiot factor is high.

Some of the HOV lanes require a "peach pass" ( I think that's what it's called). They charge you by the mile and it changes based on traffic volume. I know I-85 uses this north of Atlanta and it's being expanded to I-75 south of Atlanta. I don't use the HOV lanes because if you have an issue and need to get off in a hurry it will be very difficult to cross all those lanes to the shoulder.

I use rainbow bridge crossing in Buffalo,NY and have never been searched going either direction. Just questions. I-190 S takes you to I-90 and I-79. A 2nd customs is closer to toronto but busier.

I think that is actually the Peace Bridge, but in any case it is the most westerly I believe. QEW to I 190 to I 90.

Karcarkar,

When we came north at bthe end of March this year we staged from Orlando(Kissimmee) to New Green Acres at Walterboro, SC. Next day we stayed over at Fort Chiswell KOA, at the junction of I77 and I 81. Next night at Rose Point Campground, at New Castle PA. then on to Brantford.

All days were 320-350 miles except for the leg into Brantford, that was 280mi.

All pull thru sites, good and level no need for boards under the fiver. all close to the Interstate, all had fuel at the exit.

We are departing next week and planned to use 3 days to drive down. Based on current weather and road condition which route should I take.

By using Google map it shows three route choices, via I-95, I-77s, and I-75s.

Also we have total of 7 people (In-law and my kids), any suggestion on good camp-grounds along the way that allow large party to stay.

Many Thanks!
Go West young man, Go West!!

All I can say is turn south ASAP and don't turn around and go back.

Try to plan fuel stop as to NOT fuel up in NC. Road tax is .25 higher in NC than SC.

We always take I-79. Only takes us 2 days, but I've no issue with driving 12 to 16 hours in a day. We leave Ontario and overnight in Morgantown WV. The next night we'll either stop in North Florida, or near the state line in GA. No issues with crossing the borer, we do it every 2 weeks or so in season. Have your paperwork (including for animals if you are traveling with them). Stay away from fresh fruits and veg. Answer questions with only the information the border guard asked for. Easy peasy.
