Turnpike all the way, them tolls ($47 for motorhome with no toad, cars were $15 for that same route) will eat you up for sure. The route coming back was about the same distance, but no tolls. and that lower route is nice scenery thru the hills.

Was that the E-ZPass or cash toll charge?

On the turnpike I can pull most grades in 6th when the speed limit's 65, but on I-68, I go all the way down to 3rd to pull of the some of the hills. The increased fuel consumption negates some of the savings from the tolls eliminated by not using the turnpike, but how much, I don't know.

Besides being scenic, I-68 generally has very little traffic, except near Cumberland at times, and no tunnels to pass through.

that was cash. I have the Sun Pass (Florida) not the Ezpass.

Last year took 22/30 from Pittsburgh thru Gettysburg in our 30' winnebago love the ride. Been across pa turnpike many times and didn't want to do that. Enjoyed the vistas from rt 30 into Gettysburg no trouble at all. Just take your time no hurry.
