Thanks for the offer Steve. But we are just pulling the sled trailers w/o sleeping quarters. After working all day and then sitting behind the wheel for 6 hours we will want a motel. I'll toast Smitty after we get in our rooms.
Maybe even 2 or 3 times....

I personally would go 287 over the Tappen Zee Bridge to 684 and pick up 84 in Brewster NY at the CT border. There is some construction in White Plains NY just over the TZ you'll encounter. I was recently thru there with a car trailer. You'll find the haul much better and less of a climb to CT. Climbing out of the Hudson valley is a haul, I do it quit a bit. Then I'd fuel at the first rest area on 90 the Mass Pike Sturbridge it's easy and about 312 miles give or take from where you are.
When you pass by exit 7 just into CT on 84 give a wave we're about 7 miles up from there. I'll PM my phone number to you should you ever need anything when you are in this area.
We prefer to keep going north to Newburgh, NY to stay away from the city traffic. With the diesel in the F 250, it isn't really that much of a pull even with the 4 sled trailer. It's that damn Chevy gasser pulling only 3 sleds that slows us down waiting for him.
I found this site : http://www.findfuelstops.com
Pretty neat. It lists all fuel stops on our route. we'll probably hit the first one in Sturbridge.
I got your number Charles. I hope we don't need it.
Is this a great community or what ?????
