We're heading to Shenandoa NP, leaving from Portland, ME
My mapping software takes us right through NY city!

I'd like to arrive in Shenandoa still alive.
What routes are better for avoiding the busy city areas?

Or you can take I81 to I66 East to Front Royal, Va., and come in the North entrance off US340.

What are you afraid of? My trips through the Bronx on I95 was one of the most interesting parts of my journeys from MA to SC. A little slow but lots to look at!

I've since given that route up, now going through central Pennsylvania instead. But that's because of the ridiculous high tolls on the NJ turnpike; nothing to do with NYC.

Breaking down can be life threatening. It's not a good place.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Has I84 been paved? Last time we used it large sections of it were not fit for a tank.
