  • Leaving Santa Fe, NM heading to Maryland and parts beyond

    Anyway have good ideas for a route that isn't superslab all the way. I've done 50 and wouldn't mind doing it again, but this time pulling a LL and thinking I may need to pull the AC along with me.

    What do you all think?

      Darn, I knew I was forgetting something. Around Mid July I am leaving heading out. Our convention this year for Motor Maids in Santa Fe and plan on leaving right after that is over around 7/11.

      Thanks!

        I say ditch the idea of bringing the A/C along! Instead get yourself a 8", or 10" 02 Cool portable fan, so you can use it at any campsite, which opens up your camping options! It is also a lot smaller/lighter/compact and easier to set up than an A/C unit!

        This is a route that you might want to consider, keeping you off the Interstates!

          I don't know what your Schelude is for the rest of the month of July, but if your in Western pa the week of July 14-18 they have a bike rally called the Roar on the Shore here in Erie,pa . It's not to overwhelming, a lot of wineries in the area, local casino, race track etc. the turn out will depend a lot on the weather. So if your in the area let me know, I have a lot of room here to setup that new to you camper. It's about an hour ride from my place to the main strip. There might be some other moto campers in the area that might be closer than me to offer you a closer location. And there's another group of women riders that have a large turn out here,but I can't think of there name right now.

            Awesome. If I can get solar I would be good to go in some of these. I have a cpap, so it makes it a bit interesting. I think I have a way around it already and will have to test it out to see if it work. I have one of those portable power stations (air pump, jump start, usb) but is an off brand and not sure it will work all night with the Cpap, but if it does then could defintley do that.

              I'm with Dusty on the O2 fan. I carry one. If I were going that far north, I wouldn't put up with the weight or hassle of the air-con. Nites are cool enough that far north

                  , that's for sure you won't need ac up here. I have one that I carried once in my camper on a trip and it's never been on another trip with me. Maybe a portable ceramic heater,and the fan, but a good sleeping bag will take care of that. Here in Nortwest Pa,if we're real lucky or not we don't see 90's till late July,August. Weather should be around 70's - low 80's.

                    Guys have given you exactly what you need to know. O2 fans are the bomb. BTW, another MM right here with a LL. Love my LL a lot. I am located just outside of DC in VA about 60 miles from Skyline Drive. PM me if you are going to be out this way and perhaps we can catch up. There are a couple more MM on this site and we all camp.

                        Nope, not this year. Already had plans made but I am pretty sure the other two ladies here are.
