Rough Road - Troy, Ny

Stay away from Route 7 north out of Troy, NY if you want to keep all your fillings intact. We did this on Saturday and the road was so rough it bounced one of my 12v batteries right out of the cradle. We continued on towards Bennington, but that adventure will have to wait until we get home and I can type on a real keyboard... Canandaigua at the moment, Niagara over the weekend, then Erie, Grove City, and home

Interesting - I just came over that route with my heavily sprung truck and didn't think it was that bad - but I guess it's all relative. Now, If you really need a nasty 20 mile stretch to give those fillings a trial, then Rt 8 in Warren County NY from the county line to Warrensburg will do a shake test on any vehicle.

If you are on Rt 20, there is a very low underpass in that vicinity. Make sure you pay attention to the bypass sign as it is h3!! to find a place to turnaround(yep, I'm guilty)

We hit a lot of traffic coming up out of Troy, and I think I hit every single storm drain along the right curbing.....took 45 mins to go about 4 miles

Welcome to Troy

There really is no easy way around, especially for a non-local
