Question Need info on Pennsylvania

I am going to Reinholds PA later this month. I know what roads I want to take to PA but I need info about the best roads to take after I get to PA. One way would be to take I-81 to I-83 and then take the PA turnpike to US-222.

The way I would like to go is, take I-81 to US30 and US30 to US222. Will I have any trouble going this way with my MH?

You won't have any trouble traveling Route 30 in Pa. with a MH. I took 30 the whole way across the state last July. It has a lot of beautiful vista's. I lived in western pa. for 45 years and it's a beautiful state.

West of York, 30 is pretty slow going with lots of lights. The turnpike is expensive depending on the weight of your MH. Class 4 (19K-30K) 2 axles is $11.25 without EZ Pass for Exit 226 to 286. But certainly the quicker less stop and go route. Unless there is something you really want to see along 30, I would recommend 81 to the turnpike then north on 222.

Please be sure to spend lots of money while you are here. We need your tax $.

If you have a auto behind you, do they charge for it.
I plan on spending a lot while I am there. Need to keep everyone working so I can get my SS each month.

Yes, PA Turnpike will charge by the axle as well as weight. But as said above, if you don't need to see the sights along Rt. 30, (the Linclon Highway, beautiful if you have the time) stay off it and use an alternate. Another choice, which I would do, is 81 to 78, 183 south to 222 south. May be a little bit longer, but no fees, nice scenery. Remember, in PA we are known for the truck traffic on our roads. We are the crossroads of the northeast. Every 18 wheeler going anywhere will pass through PA. Be conscious on caravans! Have a nice trip. (when you pass Exit 77 on I-81, beep and wave, you'll pass my house!

Thinks for the info everyone. bertman I looked at that route and just may take it. I am not in a big hurry so stop and go will not brother me. Also when I pass exit 77 I will blow my horn. Make sure you are outside so you can hear it.

Hi Bertman:
While your passing out tourist information and I seem to have a few extra days on my hands to explore your beautiful state in June I was wondering if you could give me the name of an amusement park in Eastern PA. I don't know the name of it and only heard of it while sitting around a campfire in New Jersey. The only thing I know is that it does not have a fence around it and it charges by the ride like a carnival and is very family oriented. The people talking about it were very nostalgic so maybe it doesn't even exist anymore. I hope to camp around Hamburg (Cabelas) on June 22,23,2013 and do my small part to boost the economy of your state.

Knoebels Amusement Park. They offer reasonable rates for rides. Their food selections and prices are also good.
