We left our home in Helena the first of October before the winter weather set in. I'll second the recommendation of Zane Gray in Camp Verde. We stay there every year around the middle of March. I hope you don't experience any problems with the drug cartels being that close to the border. We usually head back to Helena the first of May. Safe travels.

Hi Y'all,

Been in Texas two weeks and couldn't resist... We're heading to Corpus Christi and then east along the gulf. One member said that I-10 gets pretty rough, but I lost the message and would like to have any info you might have. I like to avoid the Interstates and stay in the quieter areas. Thanks in advance!

Ralph

Ralph, I-10 is a little rough around Lake Charles, LA, but nothing to give you any real grief. There's about 14 miles from Breax Bridge to the Atchafalaya basin bridge that is a definite "slow down or beat your rig to pieces" rough. Don't even consider coming east out of New Orleans on I-10. It makes that previously mentioned 14 miles seem like a brand new super smooth expressway. US 90 is "the old road". Others will have to tell you which parts in Texas and Louisiana are good to travel. Here in Florida, Alabama & Mississipp it's good road. Runs right by all the casinos in Biloxi. You can take it all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. You won't set any speed records on it because it's goes through ever little town.

Just found a handy link on irv2.com. It shows road conditions for all states. Can be found at: Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development

Thanks to all for your guidance. We're in LA now, on the way to NO for three nights of Mardi Gras.

Hi from Callahan, Florida! We've been on the road three months as next week. It has been a grand experience and I'd fully recommend it if you can work it out. We'll be heading up to Savanna, GA in a few days and will spend six nights at the Skidaway Island State Campground near the city. We plan to explore the old city and get in some relaxation time. The weather in Florida has been beautiful. Warm days and cool nights, much like in our home state. We're biding our time before heading north, since we definitely are NOT in the mood for snow or cold. We know both of those and have had way too much experience with each! Thanks for the information from the group. I'm looking for an "RV Friendly" route to get around New York City and the NJ area. Any ideas? We prefer to stay in State Parks, so if you have any ideas in that area, please let us know.

Hey, we're almost there! We'll be in Charleston tomorrow for a few days, so I thought I'd best check in. Anything we shouldn't miss in the Myrtle Beach area?

Take care...

I've been following your posts but had nothing to add until now. I offer my suggestions to be very careful driving in the North east. Roads are narrow and rarely straight. Uneven roadways come up fast and can rattle the doors open and dishs to fall out. I also want to ask your opinion about the need for warm clothes in Montana if I am going to be there in July. I plan on being in Glacier National Park and other points of interest around then. I'm from Florida without much need for anything warmer than a jacket.

Thanks for the warning about the roads. We try to stay on the two lane roads and take our time. As for the July weather in Montana, it get hot. The nights, especially in the mountain areas like Glacier, do cool down into the forties or so. A jacket should be fine. Me, I wear shorts all summer, just as I'm doing here in VA now. You'll be overwhelmed at the beauty of Montana, I believe. The mountains are great. Keep in touch, especially if you have questions about routing. I hope you have enough time to really see the ares. Peace!

It's been a looong time since I've checked in. We've logged over 10K miles, going as far east along the Gulf as we could and then in to Callahan, FL for St. Patrick's Day. Then a side-trip into northern GA and back to the ocean. We made it as far northeast as Preston CT. We've crossed back west via the Great Lakes and up to central MN. We're now near Mount Rushmore in SD and will go on into Montana on Monday. Then home for the summer. It's been a real gas.

Alas, I haven't been on here for a coon's age. We'll be heading out in less than a week, with our ultimate destination the Florida Keys. We'll be celebrating our 45th anniversary next year and are celebrating with our kids and spouses there. Then we'll wander back west a bit north of the Gulf. Any suggestions for a good, quiet, route back to Arizona? Thanks in advance... Merry Christmas!
