Since we are essentially "neighbors," we are very much interested in your actual departure time on Friday night and subsequent state border crossing times.

Keep us posted.

All the best.

Your countdown is now in hours!

If your Garden State Parkway exit is #67, please note that the main WDW entrance on I-4 is #67. How coincidentally cool is that!

All the best.

Wow! A 1,000+ mile drive in only 15 hours! Are you in WDW? If so, you would have averaged nearly 67 miles per hour including gas and bathroom stops.

Details, please.

All the best.

Headed back home tomorrow. Ate our way around the world - had one of everything at each booth - took us 4 days. Spent Wed-Sat evening at POFQ Scat Cat Club listening and dancing to Elliot Dyson. Today was a day of rest until granddaughter called and asked us to pick up a Thing shirt from Universal (she and her friends are going as thing 1,2,3, &4 for Halloween) so headed over to Citywalk after dinner at Kouzzina's.
Only 3 weeks until drive #4 so can't be too sad.

Local Wawa gas price (regular) down two-cents to $3.71.

We'll soon be filling up. On our October 2011 drive we got gas at prices ranging from $3.25 to $3.57.

All the best.
