Not sure where to put this thread so since all my buddies are here at the SCUT page I figured it was a good place to start. My wife and I purchased a new class C motorhome last September and are getting ready to rack up the miles in May. Our first trip will be from NH to TN, over to WV and back home. Will be doing around 3200 miles our first trip. I have been thinking it would be cool it any of you are along my route I could stop in and visit. Although I have never met any of you, I feel as though we are all a close knit group. Just a thought. Here is my new "tractor" and my route.:yahoo:

Why not a trip to Alaska? Stop by and I'll grill us up some dead salmon.

Looks like you will be passing between etcallhome and myself. I'm about 5 miles west of I79 just outside of Morgantown, WV.
Like felixm said you'll be closer to him ,but I'm within 30 miles. In around Morgantown 2-4 days out of the week.

I will keep that in mind. When we get close I just may PM you for a visit. It all depends on how the trip is going.

6.0?

Yes 636, it's a 6.0. I couldn't afford the 6.6 Duramax diesel lol. It gets 10.5 miles to the gallon at 62mph which isn't too bad considering its a house.:lol:

Unfortunately you won't be within 100 miles of me. I am interested in your adventure, though. Do you have campgrounds identified along your route?

Lee
No campgrounds in mind. We will just search for one when we get tired of driving. I purchased a nice RV specific GPS that locates campgrounds for me.

If stop #13 were just a little further south you could stop by here. How long will you be in the Chattanooga area?

Nice motor home...
Not sure how long we will be in Chattanooga. It's just a waypoint along a route that I chose. We will stay as long as things stay interesting.:mocking:

Oh man, I would love some dead fish! That trip will be in the works within a few years. This is just our first big trip and the route has no specific agenda in mind.

As a GM guy I'd offer to take the 6.0 off your hands when you decide to toss a Duramax in. :lol:

Stop #10 looks awful close to Nashville. :)

If you're in the area, check out the Days Gone By museum in Portland TN (just north of Nashville on I-65) and the Lane Motor Museum (in Nashville on Murfreesboro Rd). Both are awesome, Days Gone By has a lot of really cool tractor stuff.

Of course, if you're in the general Middle TN area and the timing works, I think I know a couple of guys that might be willing to grab a beer and say hello. :good2::greentractorride:

Sure thing lol. I got to drive the new 2014 Corvette Stingray today. It had the base engine with 450 HP and holy hell does it handle nice.

If your stop #19 is Pittsburgh and from there you are heading to I80 on Rt 28/66 you will be going right past our place about a hour north of Pittsburgh. Enjoy your trip, it's always nice to get away.
Good luck Jason
