Vacation is getting close....Our road trip !!
« on: July 18, 2007, 08:42:04 PM »
Hey everyone !,  8)

Vacation is getting pretty close for Ed and myself. If things go properly, and I get the right amount of sleep Friday morning after work, we should be leaving on our road trip Friday evening around 8:00PM.

Our destination from the Tampa Bay area, is Olean, New york. Olean is situated not to far north of the Pennsylvania state line in western New york State.


We will be getting on I-75 north in Florida and taking that to I-10. We will then take I-10 east to 295(that's going around Jacksonville, Fl) we will then connect up with I-95, and continue on that northbound, through Georgia. (staying west of Brunswick, and Savanna)

Somewhere Northeast of Charleston, SC, we will pick up route 26, which will put us on a west north west direction until we hit interstate 77.


We will continue on Interstate 77, passing Columbia SC, Charlotte, NC. Somewhere, West of Winston-Salem NC, we will then be looking for our first motel room. ( that will be enough driving for the day !!


After a rest up,... We continue again, on 77 northbound through Virginia, and then through West Virginia, going through Bluefield, then Beckley. At Beckley, we will pick up route 19, which will eventually turn into route 79. and taking us eventually to Morgantown, West Virginia.

At Morgantown, we will be pretty close to the Pennsylvania state line. The next major city at this point will be Pittsburgh. We will continue up the western edge of PA,( on 79),  going through Erie, Pa. From Erie, it's just a hop, skip and a jump to Olean, New york  eastbound on 86.


We will be visiting my younger sister in Olean. We will also get up to Buffalo, to visit some friends up in that city.  We will also be going to my hometown Of North Tonawanda, New york ( just north of Buffalo)

Have plenty of people to see up there also. We plan on spending a day at Niagara Falls, and also if things work out right, will also get up to Toronto, Canada, for an overnighter.



Our return trip-----------




Leaving Olean, we will be going through Erie, PA once again.  Through Cleveland, Ohio ( on Interstate 90).  Around Cleveland, we will pick up interstate 71, going through Mansfield, Columbus, and finally Cincinnati, Ohio.


Cincinnati, will put us on the Kentucky state line. we will continue on 71 and possibly stopping at Louisville, Kentucky. We are then heading to Evansville, Indiana area, Via RT. 64  where we will spend several days, and visit a friend of ours there. Actually we will be staying in a very small town in Indiana known as Poseyville. ( Love that name) that's north east of Evansville.


After that, Heading south on 41, through Indiana,( and once again through Kentucky) we will be going through ( possibly stopping at Nashville, TN. Once again continuing, after Nashville on rt 24,  we will hit Chattanooga, connecting back up with 75 and taking that South to Atlanta, Georgia. We will most likely do an overnight in Atlanta, before we continue out trip back to the Tampa Bay area.


Just typing this, I feel the Hemorrhoids in my ass already beginning to flair up.  ::)

I may not be online much from now until we leave. We have a lot of preparations to make. Most have already been done. I am scheduled to return back to work on August 6th. I won't be using a computer during this trip, ( Ed would kick a lump on me if I did  :P ) so everyone take care of yourselves, stay healthy, and if you can't be good than be bad !!...But if I do find a computer, I will log on and let you all know how the trip is going !!


Take care-----Ray

Hey Ray look out for delays on I-77 going through the Tunnels. They are doing construction on both tunnels and they are down too one lanes, I have noticed at times traffic can be backed up for miles going through the tunnels.  Good Luck on your Journey. ;D

for a nice detour,take the New Castle(i think) exit off of I79 north of Pitt and go west. Go to McConnels mill. Park at the mill or up above and walk down. Beautiful gorge with some nice easy walking trails. Its very close to I79. You will like it.

I hope you two have a really lovely time. I really miss taking car trips. The moment I become liquid in any way, I am going to be on the road! So watch out anybody within three to four hundred miles of me....... ;D   :o
If you would like a nice home cooked meal, and a free place to stay in N.C. I am literally a few blocks from Business 40, a mile or so from I40, and only a couple of exits from US52, all of which are accessable to and from I77.
I have a sofa bed, and I can make sonny sleep over at his brother's or something.
Just thought I'd throw that out there........I may even be able to swing having an Anniversary cake ready too.....

Kisses to you and Ed, and if you have time I can meet you almost anywhere.
Happy Trails!  :)

Awwww, Thankyou Lisa !! :)


Lisa, I am going to private message you my cell phone number. If our plans work out the way we want to, I am thinking that we will be in North Coralina around 9:00 or 10:00 am on Saturday Morning. So give a call, and perhaps we can get together for breakfast !!



Jerry,

Thanks for that info on the tunnels. I will make sure I am driving at that point,as Ed gets a little freaked driving through tunnels ! :)
