I think I will be heading up thrusday after work (6ish) and going up 95-87. It says that it takes 7 hours 28 mins, so that would put us in Montreal at 1:30 in the morning if we went straight through and 2 if we stopped for a quick dinner.

Anyone that wants to meet up along the way, let me know! I would love to be part of a convoy that has CB's since i have one.

Maybe we should start looking at points/ places to meet at along 95/87?? I guess I'll start with Junction 38 off 95. As we collect the info and closer to the time, we can make a final list of meeting points and guesstimates for ETA. I'll be off Thursday for sure so I can leave whenever the wifes ready.... The latter tends to run 15-30 minutes behind eastern standard time

I'll be leaving around 6ish, too, but from Harrisburg. If I take 81/84 up, there should be a good meeting place where 84 and 87 connect. I'll be heading that way in May, I'll check it out.

kromicacid- If I just get a cheapo CB from Wal Mart, will that work?

Probably where I would recommend meeting might be the first service area north of I-84, about 9 miles north of I-84 per the Thruway website.

Hi! My partner & I are driving up from Doylestown, PA. We're interested in joining the convoy but what if we want to jump off the route, or if we're not leaving the same time?

WhiteTDI05, its not a UN/ military convoy mate, you can come and go as you want Closer to the time, I'll route map the whole thing and paste it on here. Route, meeting points and times etc.

Kind of off topic, but how is the "realistic" travel time from DC to Montreal? I am considering catching a Senators' game (GO GIANTS!!) on Friday then driving up that night/early morning. BUT, it sounds like the drive time will put arrival into middle of Saturday if I do this.

Also, is there anyone plannig driving up late Friday/early Sat? Possibly because of work??? I would like to convoy on up and it would be more fun. This all hinges around the game of course.

If the game is a no go I'll be coming up from FL or Alabama(dad). I95 up to Virginia seams fast, but slows a lot getting any futher north. Any ideas from people who have made this trip (general idea ) on better routes? I heard suggestions to veer over into Ohio and come across. That may work out if I can meet up with the Texans coming up.

Like everyone else this is all early planning to get ideas rolling. Throw 'em out if ya got 'em.

vikingrob- Yeah, I saw that on the NY Thruway website too. I'm still gonna check it out, since I'll be driving right by it.
http://www.nysthruway.gov/travel_plazas/tp-065n.html

whitetdi05- What beachkokopelli said. We're open to anyone joining/leaving the convoy at any time. The only requirement is you have to have fun

beachkokopelli- Who said you get to decide the route?
