Who's in for this one?

Question for the Long Island teams -- I am driving in from Pennsylvania. What's the best way to get to Long Island mid-late morning? I've traditionally taken the Outerbridge Crossing to Staten Island, then taken the Verazano to the Island, but if there is a better way, please let me know. Thanks!

Eastern Beast is in! This will be our first comp, and we're certainly looking forward to meeting some of you guys in person. Gonna try and make the rounds, but please don't hesitate to stop by and say hi.

White Dog: I'd probably take that same route (anything to avoid the Cross Bronx Expressway after the GWB).. Most morning traffic will be moving toward the city, and once you're on the Island, you'll be moving the opposite way, so you should be okay.

The motorhome and trailer (all 48 feet) are booked on the New London Ferry so I guess The Basic BBQ Team is all in on this one!!! We are just parking lot camping Thursday night as e just dont want to deal with Friday traffic.

Looking forward to this one! Last weekend I was only around on Sunday and wasn't much use to my team as I had my block party on Saturday:wacko:. I have to remember I'm not in my twenties anymore. We'll see you all there and be sure to stop by the "Grim Reaper Smokers" and say hi.

That should work, BUT . . .

KNOW THIS. Once on Long Island, if you have a trailer or RV know that you CAN NOT travel on any parkway, because 1) you will be ticketed, and 2) you'll likely hit an overpass.

Many of us were hoping you had to be out of town or something.....:loco:

Meanwhile, Ma's Que Crew is back in the fray.

Good point. I am assuming a loaded F-150 without a trailer is acceptable on the parkways?

Verrazano to 278 (Gowanus Expwy - BQE) to 495 (LIE) is a possibility. It depends on traffic and sometimes you just have to play it by ear while listening to the traffic reports.

Am radio, a few stations.

off the top of my head (I have them in memory in my truck) I think they are 1010 (Every 10 minutes on the 1′s), 880 (Every 10 minutes on the 8′s,)

depending on where in PA your coming from i would say 84 east to 684 south to 287 east to 95 south for about 10 or so mile then follow signs to whitestone or throggs neck bridges you will slpit off before cross bronx BS then L.I.E. to medford, thats the way i go with my trailer from northern westchester, same applies if coming from rockland, orange or ulster counties just change route to 84 east to 87 south to 287 east then same as before

Latham House BBQ, formerly known as Bacanak BBQ (and maybe still called that by Sam's despite my efforts to have it changed) will be there. Hell, someone has to bring up the rear!
