Default Driving to NY for thanksgiving

For the 25th time, Ill be driving back and forth from Florida and NY. Every year I say im not going to do that again..............................But a year or two will pass and I make the trip again.

Northern Virginia to Rockland County, NY is the worst. Has anyone made the northern trip in the last couple months that can inform me of the traffic patterns?
Thanks
Phil

Yeah, basically the traffic from about Washington DC all the way north into Maine,
SUX
Got a buddy coming up from Cape Coral next week, and I'll ask him how it was
and post his reply here whenever I get it. The Northeast corridor (DC to Boston) is
really the worst part. From Richmond, south, it's a lot more "pleasurable" to drive.

My buddy is on the way back now. Just talked to him and he is in NC. He says that the traffic is not too bad, but that there are police everywhere! He said that he's never seen that many law enforcement people/cars in Georgia on ANY of his trips up and back. I'll talk to him again this weekend and get the entire picture.

When we used to do that drive with the race rig (Frieghtlines Columbia based 40' toter with 32' Stacker, and 6' tounge was $12-14 ft over legnth already and that traffic took years of our lives every time.

Be safe Phil & see you when you get back. Happy Thanksgiving!

I grew up in New City, and used to get hammered at the bear mountain inn when it was $7.00 all you can drink.

Im going to my sister's house in Pearl River, NY. Just over the NJ border
