KAMO,
GOOD LUCK ON THE TRIP..Whatever you do..stay out of Washington, DC pulling your Rv is not allowed within the city proper..You can stay at Cherry Hill RV Park, MD. Just North of Washington, (right off the beltway) if you're planning on visiting there while passing thru...Along the way of 1-81, THERE'S ANY NUMBER OF KEWL places to stay in the NORTHERN part Va. Id' say grab a Wal-Mart road atlas as well..(you never know when you might wanta pull in late)..If you have a road map CD program for a laptop chances are you can find all the campgrounds listed at their exits as well..Just a few tips..
ciao

Kamo,
Unless you plan to visit NYC and Boston go around . Easy to get lost and lots of traffic .
Coming up the Jersey pike ( 95 ) get off at exit 10 ( 287 ) , go north to NY thruway ( 87 ) to Newburgh , then take ( 84 ) east . Much nicer drive and you'll miss the GW bridge . Have a fun trip . Also once north of DC call ahead for campgrounds , most are closed . It might pay to make a list of courtesy parking , just in case

Ok, so I-10 it is.

I was gonna stop in Oklahoma at relatives, so I either skip that or figure out how to get up there from I-10.

Kamo,
I use all three of the directories mentioned (Trailer Life, Woodall’s, KOA) and the Rand McNally atlas available at Wal-Mart (because it gives the location of Wal-Mart stores in every state/city).

In addition, I make considerable use of “The Next Exit”, a one-inch thick paperback that shows facilities (lodging, food, fuel) at (almost) every interstate exit in every state. Their website –
http://www.thenextexit.com/
I bought mine at Camping World. A new edition is available each year. It is very useful for planning fueling stops, especially if you have “rewards” cards from any one of several organizations (Flying J, Good Sam Club via Petro truck stops, Wal-Mart, etc.) that offer fuel discounts to card-holders.

In addition to AAA maps and their “TripTiks” , I also use DeLorme’s “Street Atlas USA 2006” which is a PC-based mapping program that includes a CD or DVD with almost every street and road in the country. New versions are available each year with corrections/additions. It is especially useful in negotiating unfamiliar routes (especially interstate interchanges) and in planning bypasses of major metropolitan areas.

Once I determine potential fuel stops for the following day using “The Next Exit”, I use “Street Atlas” to view the exit off-ramps and street(s) leading to my desired fuel stop.

I did not mean to discourage you from I-40, I only wanted to point out that Flagstaff would not be a good place to camp. If you are going to Tulas, I-40 is the way to go in my opinion. I would avoid Phoenix during the rush hours at any cost.

azflycaster, how far past Flagstaff do you have to drive to get down from the mountains into warmer air?

Going east from Flagstaff the next populated area is (Standing on a corner in) Winslow, Arizona. It is around 60 miles and you drop 2000 feet. The tempertures should be around 10 degrees warmer.
