    An iOS app called RoadAhead provides a similar, but sometimes slow solution to see the merchants at the exits coming ahead.

    Oh, I’m a windows down road tripper :)

      @Chad- Awesome, I’m going to check out RoadAhead. That could be very useful. Nice- score another for windows down!

    Just a quick comment about the bridge tolls around NYC. You pay one way, going into NY. When you enter NJ, no tolls.

    1. Trav says:

      @Kristina- Haha, thanks! Figured that out, obviously after we went through. I was pretty happy about that!

    Listening to the Roadtrip Survival kit. The GW bridge tolls are only in one direction – into NY, no tolls going into NJ.
