I hope this isnt a one way trip for the wifey to hide her body

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I drove there for Christmas, not a bad drive. The rest stops in Ohio are pretty nice. Pennsylvania is really pretty. Took us 12 hours to get to Morristown, which is 30 miles outside of NYC.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

No suggestions, but watch for the popo in Pennsylvania - especially in the mountain areas.

If you look on the side of the road you will sometimes see horizontal strips at the very edge of the roadway. I'm pretty sure they are used as distance markers by the aircraft which monitor the road.

Ask the locals where the good spots are when driving through. They're unreal.

Actually most of Jersey is really pretty country, twisty roads, forests, small towns. It's the area near NYC that is a cesspool and gives the rest of the state a bad name.

Rode the R1 to NJ in '05.
I thought Ohio and Indy were boring but Penn was great. More to see and not straight and flat, so plan your trip thru PA during the day if you can. When i got to Philly some guy wanted to pump my gas and i told him to beat it. Turns out its full service gas stations there, so i was the douche. Don't just stop for any cheesesteak, there's a couple places where the locals go, so go there. Don't remember where they are, but everyone there does.

If you are headed to northern NJ, I suggest I-80 to I-76 at Niles/Youngstown, OH, then exit the OH Turnpike (Stay on I-80) across PA. Youngstown is about half way (400 mi), and there are lots of places to stay the night if you like. On this route, watch speed in PA - stay under 10 over - and also in NJ after crossing the Water Gap for about the first 40 miles. I got a $200 ticket there for 73 in a 55 a few years back.

If you are headed to southern NJ, then stay on the OH Turnpike (it becomes I-76 and take it into the Philly area. There is a connector that runs directly to the NJ Turnpike (I-95) north of Philly. (276?)

I saw Morristown in a post. If that's the destination, its on I-78 and is about halfway between the two roads. Personally, I prefer the I-80 route for the view and less traffic. You should check the maps, because you should be able to drop south off of I-80 long before you get to the NYC area and pick up I-78 into Morristown Maybe I-476 or I-81 will do, but check a map.

I used to ride from Chicago to NYC and back each year when I worked out there. Took the bike for the summer and brought it back for winter storage. I-80 is a pleasant ride.
