Holy Moly

You're coming a LONG way for an Airstream. I thought I drove far to get our '87 in Columbus, OH, but MAN do you have us beat

If you like Cajun check out Prunhomme's Lost Cajun Kitchen in Columbia, PA. The owner is the nephew of Paul Prudhomme. You may be in time for Mud Puppies (crawfish) season.

Good look and be safe.

The Flying J in Pa on 81 I understand is a great place to stop.

Oh c'mon, guys! The journey is MORE than half the fun!

We've owned 2 trailers:

The first we drove from Chicago to Tacoma, WA and back. In December through the mountains no less. And first time towing anything. It was scary, uncharted, beautiful, wild, and so memorable. We never even got around to restoring the damn trailer and we're still glad we made the trip - how's that for a ringing endorsement of a good road trip?

This second time around, I flew from Chicago to Dallas. Jumped a Greyhound to Texarkana, bought the tow vehicle, drove to South Carolina where the trailer sat, and drove the whole thing back to Chicago. WELL worth the adventure and experience.

The drudgery, expense and effort you put into the trip disappears the minute you're home. All that remains is the fun memories and beautiful sights you saw along the way.

Oh, and my vote is I-90. If you can, slow down and see Mt. Rushmore, and absolutely take the 240 Badlands Loop when you reach Wall, S.D. Incredible.

Good luck!
