Moving a post here from someone leaving the Newmar Rally in Essex Junction and headed to PA...

After the rally we'll be headed to Harrisburg, PA on our way to Florida. At first I thought I'd leave Essex Junction heading south on Route 7 to Route 4 west to I-87 at Glen Falls, NY.

The other day, however, I met someone from Vermont who suggested I go north from Essex Junction on Route 2 or I-89, cross the lake just below Quebec and pick up I-87 south from there.

Does anyone have an opinion on which route to take?

Sorry, I didnt see this post earlier. I wouldn't go down 7 to 4 from Essex. I would go down 7 to 22A to 4 then in Fort Ann, NY 149 to Lake George where you pick up I87. Depends on what type of driving you want to do. If you go across 2 to I 87, it's probably longer but you might get more interstate driving. If you go down 22A, it's more local 2 land roads. Google maps says this is 465 miles, 9 1/2 hours. Google maps says going north on 2 to I87 is 525 mile and 10 hours.

LynnVT,

Thanks for the input. Anyone else with an opinion?

I agree with Lynnvt. Route 22A is the way to go as it is a very good road through rolling farm country with grad views. When you leave the rally you want to get to route 7 south as you had planned. In Verginnes, route 22A will branch off to the right and will take you south to route 4 in Fair Haven. If you need fuel, there are a couple of decent truck stops just south the the route 22A/Route 4 intersection. Follow route 4 west to Fort Ann and NY 149 to Lake George and I 87 South as Lynnvt noted. If you don't get to the Shelburne Museum while at the rally, you will go right by it in Shelburne while on route 7 and it is a very worthwhile stop. Enjoy.

WELCOME TomVT to iRV2 and THANKS for your first post!!

Glad to have you on board and hope you'll surf around and offer your help in some of the other forums as well...

On the main irv2.com page there are many topics and subjects to choose from,even a section at the bottom where the U.S. is divided up in regions and we plan get togethers to put faces on some of these names......One thing I've learned is that when iRV2'ers get together no one goes hungry!!

Thanks again and I look forward to seeing more of your posts...

WooHoo! Another Vermonter! Welcome Tom! Hope you will join us at the Nor'Easter Rallies. We have been the only Vermonters and I think some of those New Joisy folks think Vermont is a myth!

Another twist - Traffic in the LAke George area trying to get to 87 will be terrible. May I suggest tht in Fort Ann, you continue south on RT 4 to Fort Edward. Turn right on Rt 197 about 8 miles to Rt 9. Turn left on rt 9 about 3 miles to rt 87. A lot less traffic.

Bill

Well, the consensus seems to be to head south rather than north. Even so, if the trip north to I-87 only adds 1/2 hour to our drive time then it's a consideration. I'd like to think that I'd make up that time - even at only 62 MPH - on I-87, assuming, of course, that Route 22a, etc. are 55 MPH roads.

Thanks everyone!

I would say it's pretty much what you prefer. What people choose has to do with what they are comfortable with. Where I live it's about 50-60 miles to any interstate. And to get to the interstate going southeast we have go over the Green Mountains. Another way to avoid the Lake George traffic is to take 9I off 149 and I believe it's Quaker Road to 87. We don't really care much for going down 4 although that's the way the the I87 signs say to go. You have to go through Fort Edward.

the locals got you to I87. Once you are on I87 take it to I84 west to I81 south.
