    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. :thumbsup2

    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.

    Outstanding drive times! Thanks for the info. We've never gone through VA to NC in less than 2:48.

    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. :thumbsup2

    Our area's best price isn't close to yours but it's improving: Wawa down to $3.69; Delta down to $3.61.

    All the best. :thumbsup2

    A news story I read today said they expect gas prices to fall between five and fifteen cents weekly over the next three weeks. Let's hope that is correct.

    My Internet is having issues and pages keep timing out as I try and look back, so with that said I am sorry if I am asking something asked a million times before....

    We live in the Hudson Valley, NY. We always went down thru Jersey and just took 95. Anyone want to point me in a better direction/way? We are two minutes from the NY state thruway if that helps. Kingston NY to be exact.

    Thanks in advance!

    WOW! That is awesome and encouraging!
    How did you get though VA so fast?
    We have heard they give tickets over $1000 :sad2: and we are always afraid to go over their speed limit (usually stay within 5 miles above the limit).
    Are there new radars we need to know about (though they are prohibited in VA...:scratchin)
