Hello all I'm new to this site but so far this is fantastic.
I don't know if you would call this a roadtrip or some sort of psychotic fantasy but my best friend and I are doing a marathon driving trip thanksgiving week from Central connecticut to Palm Bay Orlando area to see his parents for Thanksgiving. We are planning on leaving Tuesday at noon and not stopping. We are hoping someone could give us a clue on what the 78/81 trip thru PA is like for real. We want to avoid TOLLS (haha) but we don't want to get stuck on a road that is really more of an expressway (two lane) in the middle of nowhere. Basically we are trying to get to Florida as fast as possible without paying the most in Tolls. Really want to avoid those $8 New York bridge tolls and traffic.
Or if its unavoidable, does anyone know what the total cash for the tolls are from New York to Orlando? We are working with limited cash (we are plastic people lol.)
I know this goes against most roadtrippers creeds but this is the worst we've undertaken so far. Two weekends ago we tried Philly for the weekend and got stuck on a bridge in New York for 3 hrs so that we could pay that $8 toll.
Any advice besides telling me we are crazy would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!
