I like Rainbows and I LOVE grilled cheese, but there is something very wrong about messing up a really good grilled cheese with food coloring. YUCK!!! I guess if you we trying to tempt a reluctant toddler to eat this might have some merit but otherwise it's just an awful waste of time and good cheese.

Lol.... Barb.. Grandkids occasionally....

Last night i facetimed the 3 in FL and they were sitting there playing with homemade Slime.....
Saw this on facebook.

I personally do not think i could eat this.... But it sure would be fun with them....
Btw... Red food coloring used to cause my oldest to have migraines, discovered this when he was a year old....
So.... Do not try if your kiddos might have food allergies....

We'll be fine.

As far as I 95 is concerned, mapquest doesn't show too many routes from point A to point B on the east coast. If you're on a tight schedule to complete your journey the "side roads" are not a very good option. Ground level roads add an extra 30 minutes to every hour of traffic on the east coast. Being unfamiliar with the "spiderweb" of interstates near NYC and Boston, I've tried to limit congestion wherever possible. However, one that looks good on paper may be the one that locals know to avoid. Constant buildings and masses of humanity makes it impossible to chart a "easy route".

Going home our roads will take us through a lot of trees and cow pastures in upstate NY.
I guess I wasn't being explicit enough about traveling that corridor, it's not the drivers, traffic, etc., it's the massive holes you will need to levitate your RV over in order to prevent massive damage!!! You apparently believe you are going to be traveling over improved roadway I come through there in my car, once on my way up from FL, there's a hunk of metal sticking out from along side of the road and if I wasn't in the car but in the RV, chances of me hitting that were a lot higher. It looked like a piece of the guardrail bent outwards.

Well, it's your RV, I do wish you luck in getting through that mess in one piece, safe travels! Personally I would stay further north than I-95 so be forewarned. The cost in tolls alone will easily exceed the additional fuel to bypass all that.

Well Mutants, the waves were against us today it was just to rough, the predicted 2' waves became 4' and 6' waves, and on a 23' boat it was just to much.

Have no clue what route you went since I-84 is around 50 miles north of I-95. Papa Steve was talking about going directly through the city, which isn't something you can do from I-84 to I-95 unless you absolutely went completely out of your way and wanted to waste a lot of time driving east to then go south to then go north. From your overly obscure description of your path, you couldn't have gone through the city which is where it's really bad.

Yea, unless some kind of miracle occurred over the last couple of months, people really should heed my warnings of bringing an RV through NYC and the road conditions there. I'm sure you've all experienced nutty drivers, etc., but holes that will swallow your toad you have not!!!

Heck, just a week ago the crane fell across the Tappan Zee bridge (7 out of 8 lanes). Can't imagine wanting to deal w/that (it's since been re-opened) and the George Washington requires hair pin turns to get on/off, all across barely paved gravel.

Going north to follow I-84 across CT is the best route, or even further north as your own choosing may desire. Not to mention the huge savings in tolls. Heck, even CT drivers that live here avoid I-95 unless they absolutely have to be on it

Carl, the sultan of the Northeast. Okay, okay, okay. I surrender. I've changed our route. I 95 out of the Phillie area. Short of the NYC we will swing to the west a little and go up and around NYC to catch I 84 and then go towards Hartford and points further north.

Thanx for the "head's up". The tolls and the possibility of one or more traffic tie-ups convinced me to "go around clown, go around". LOL

Night all. Good night Marty, Colleen, Barb, Denise, and Earlene.
