    So the DW and I and our 12 year old grandson will be leaving in 2 weeks on a return trip to Greenbrier campground just outside Gatlingburg, Tn. Last August when we went we drove up I-75 and veered off from Atlanta on I-285 east towards 441 towards Cherokee, then through the Smokies into Gatlinburg. Had never done that before and we no problems other than it being a narrow 2 lane winding(!!!) adventure. (whew)! We went home by way of I-40 west to I-75 south back to Ocala, Fl. We would rather go back that route to Gatlinburg, but was noticing that there is a lot of construction on I-75 north of Atlanta right now and possibly some on I-40. Is any one familiar in this area of travel and about how long this might go about? I'm thinking that this might be due to the heavy rains and washouts that occurred earlier this year and how difficult it might be to get through these areas. I would prefer not to have to travel up I-95 and cut over in Carolina. Thanks in advance for any tips or advice.

    Here in Florida, any Walmart stores that have a Murphy gas station close by, you can load a prepaid shoppers card inside the store with cash or cc/dc and then go to the Murphy and use that prepaid card to purchase fuel. it saves you 3 cents a gallon that way.But since last week, most likely due to Spring Break here in Florida, gas prices have sky rocketed up wards of 15-20 cents a gallon. Most stations within 5 miles of me are $2.59 to $2.69 for regular grade. That's absurd that they are allowed to randomly go up and down as they choose, with the rises way higher and faster than when they do lower it at a much slower pace. Granted it is still way lower than 2-3 years ago, so still cant complain much about it.
