    Does anyone know how long a drive it is from Raleigh, NC to Gettysburg, PA?
    Mapquest.com says around 6 hrs
    Yahoo.com says around 8 hrs
    I don't know who is right. Anyone?
    Thanks!

    The UCP ride is at Paragon, which is in Hazelton...not Gettysburg.

    the ride from Vermont should take us about 7-8 hours, depending on who drives, 6 hours for me, 10 for John..think I'll drive!

    Hope to see ya there if your goin

    Gettysburg to DC is only about 2 hours maximum. We have made it on a holiday weekend in 1 1/2 already.

    Wayne said to tell you you must drive at a snails pace if it takes you 3 hours to get from DC to here. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif One of our club members lives outside of DC and it only takes him 2 1/2 hours to go from DC to Carlisle which is about 45 minutes to an hour from us.

    It'll take you about 6 hours. I drive from Raleigh to Bethlehem, PA quite often and it takes me about 8 hours. It'll take me about 2 hours to get to Gettysburg(I think), so it should take you about 6 hours, I'm guessing.
