X2 what others have said - I am pretty much toast after 350 Miles (and that is @ 6 hours driving with no breaks)

Anyhoo, we have camped around Middle GA, and Right around the "honey I'm beat, let's find a camp" point you should be in Macon GA. If you take the I475 bypass, there is a great camp at Lake Tobesofkee (Looking at your rig, I am assuming you are 50AMP so you will need to camp at Claystone Camp) Pretty devent rates - Under $30 a night...here is a link from my bookmarks

It would be a long day 2 drive, but just outside Elizabethtown, KY is Glendale Campground - just off I65 - a really nice campground that we have stayed at:

Day 3 would see you to Goshen - @ a 300 or so mile drive and, on a Sunday I have been told traffic from Louisville-Goshen should not be a big deal.

Hope this helps and see you there!

We will be attending our good friends 50th wedding anniversary in Palmarya, PA on Saturday. So it will be a 580 mile run on Sunday. It's a long day, but we have had some longer days in the past.

It is our first Goshen Rally and we are looking forward to seeing you all there!

Yes, thank you for all the info. I will check out the campgrounds and map out the distances and time. Hopefully they are not too far from the interstate, I don't want too much of excess driving than we already are.

For our trip to Goshen from Florida, when we reach the TN/GA border on I-75, which way would be a safe non-nail biting route? Continuing on I-75 or take I-24 to I-65?

Because I have read that a stretch of I-24 can be very tricky to drive even for semi's.

I never did answer your post back in April - APOLOGIES!!

I would stay on I75 - Overnight at Lake Tobosfocee - it is 4 miles off the interstate. E-Z in and Out - really!

I75 to I20 to I65 @ Birmingham - do not let rumors of construction scare you - we have been up and down this route over the past 4 months with no problem.

I65 on up from B'Ham to Glendale campground in Elizabethtown KY. This will be a long day :-\ Lake Tobosfocee-> E'Town @ 450 miles so get a early start!

Again, Glendale is RIGHT off I65 easy access and return!

Hope this helps!

We're also coming from Houston, but will be leaving around 7/25. Last year we were pressed for time and our TT was almost brand new so we really didn't enjoy the trip. This year we can take our time.
