Will there be anyone traveling on Friday on either I-80 or I-76?

I’m going 294, 94, 65 south to 70 across to PA.

Don’t feel like paying $300 in tolls taking 80 across

Oo good point on the tolls. I haven't traveled out that way before. If anyone would like to meet up and lead the way, if not too inconvenient, that would be awesome.

Interstate 78 Delaware River

A friend along the way

Because I won't be going to Carlisle this year, I'll be home. In event anyone needs help, I'm located west of the Delaware River [NJ / PA]. Going west, Exit 75 is the 1st exit in PA. I'm at Exit 57 Lehigh St.

If you need me, call my cell 610-248-1481
When you need a flatbed, call A-1 Towing 610-774-9994 They can move most anything https://a1towinglehighvalley.com/

Ok, I’ve only made it to Columbus, Oh but I already hate construction.

Let’s take the highway down to 1 lane, toss in a S curve that the semis can only take at 20 mph. That was on 65 south towards Indy. 70 from Indy to the Ohio border also has a lot of construction too.

Yeah I know, tis the season.

What fun
