    Road Trip

    We're scheduling a road trip to New York.
    We'll go to New Mexico to Oklahoma to Memphis TN to Nashville to Washington D.C. to New York to Boston to Niagara Falls to Ohio and home.
    Looking forward to our trip as I have always wanted to go to New York. I never thought I'd be driving to New York - my husband's idea..

    We've done several road trips in the past to WA State - Canada - Yellowstone etc..

    I've never had a road trip to the Atlantic Ocean - this will be a wonderful adventure.

    Are Road Trips your thing?

    Road trips and camping and caravanning. Next trip will be up north again - I'm taking some Austrian friends around the north and west of Scotland. Haven't driven on the continent since the last century I have a real hankering to drive down to the toe of Italy just to see the country.

    Drove 600 miles last week, OK I'm a lorry driver road trips are my thing all that varies is the length of the trip.

    Well, if you're going to Boston, I highly recommend, before heading West, again, take a drive north to Maine. Go up the coast a bit from Portland.
    A beautiful little tourist town worth checking out is Boothbay Harbor. Or a bit further north to Bar Harbor.
    Then head west from Portland Maine to Saratoga Springs, NY. And then across to Buffalo. to Niagra Falls.
    And you have to go to the Canadian side of the Falls.


    We LOVE road trips.

    Re: Road Trip

    Out of curiosity how far do you have to go before you consider a road trip a road trip?

    I'm contemplating camping this weekend in order to do a spot of hillwalking depending on which way I go for the return trip it's 276 to 240 miles. Would that be classed as a road trip?

    Absolutely!
    We've done road trips that were only 50 miles or so. We drove up to Greeley, Colorado, for the Rodeo and camped with the family for the weekend. That counts.

    Re: Road Trip

    any time I'm in a vehicle not going to a grocery store that's a road trip..

    Lars we're booked for Maine thank you.

    This will be one of our longer road trips @ 6 thousand miles.

    looking forward to it.

    Re: Road Trip

    So, how goes the road trip planning?

    My wife will finally be coming home next week from rehab, and we can start planning our next road trip.
    Don't think Maine will make the agenda this year.
