I can fit a lot of vehicles here. Yes, through Monday is good. I don't have the house to put people up overnight, but you're more than welcome to sleep in a tent/vehicle outside as long as you don't mind hearing the dogs bark or the coyotes howl.

I agree Rt 15 is a great drive! I have used it many times going to Watkins Glen.
BTW 15 is now pretty much 4 lane slab now. I think we spent about 4 hours running 70 or better getting to Lawrenceville last time.... 2 lane back roads would be better.

Suggestions from previous rides through PA.

From NY- US 15 south to to US 6 west to PA 287 south (Wellsboro)
287 south to US 220 west (towards Mill Hall).
Then get on PA 64 south (to Pleasant Gap).
Then PA 144 south to US 322 south to Lewistown. There you can hit US 522 south if you want to or continue to Port Royal and get on PA 75 South. Jump on PA 74 south (really cool) to Carlisle and back through Michaux area (or 15 again) or stay on 75 all the way to Maryland just west of Hagerstown (also a cool ride).

I doubt I'll make it. 4-5 days is not doable for me.

I haven't even looked at it, but Harper's Ferry is about an hour from me. I can slide over and take a look at it some time.
