Congratulations on your new rig!!! Happy trails to you! We stayed at Cherry Hill on our first trip, and they were very nice, and helpful.

But getting there might be tough, the 95 corridor. Yuck! Maybe we just pick the worst times for driving, i don't know.

Unless you particularly want to stay in Bar Harbor you could try Pumpkin Patch CG in Herman.....very close to Bangor. They accept Passport America or at least they did a year or so ago. Easy side trip to Bar harbor and surroundings

The city bus line ends inside Cherry Hill park. It makes it very easy to go to the mall. DO NOT drive to the mall, parking is TOUGH. Ride the bus to the subway and take the subway to the mall. The subway is clean and SAFE. Cherry Hill staff are great people and the park is clean and nice. Have a great trip.

Congrats on your new rig and

I know how badly we always want that first trip to go well but don't get discouraged if something goes wrong. Our reactions to problems are often worse than the problems themselves so do your planning and hope for the best. You'll have a great time.

We love Cherry Hill too. We were there before the express bus was running from the park to the subway station and found that driving to the subway was MUCH nicer for us. With an express bus it might not be so bad. Don't drive to the mall.

The most memorable thing we did was take a guided Segway tour of DC. Easy to learn to ride them and it was a blast. My DW is about as far from being athletic and adventurous as they come and she did well on the Segway and wants to do it again.

After DC we found Gettysburg to be a facinating stop.

Have fun and be safe.

After just a couple of short trips we have learned that no matter how well you think you planned it out it doesn't always come out perfectly - it is teaching us a bit of "humility" and patience.
