Susquehanna Trailways has a daily route between New York City and Williamsport & Lock Haven PA. There are stops in Newark & Somerville NJ.

Greyhound appears to have a station in Lewisburg but I can't figure out their schedules.

Or just commit a federal crime, they'll give you a free ride.

what's the difference if you're sitting in a car or a bus?? at least if you drive, you can stop whenever you feel the need.

I don't know from Otisville, but I did have to make a few trips to visit some of your peeps in Lewisburg. Nice country out that way, hella good diner in town too.

Have a nervous disorder that gives me panic attacks when traveling alone by car, they aren't pretty if you've had them. Plus with the back it makes it worse.
Happens sometimes even with company in the car. Bus I'm not crazy about either so trains are good for me.

Thing is my bro-in-law lives there. He has been coming to our house for the past 10 years, he also has off the last month of the year and he's been asking me to come spend a few days to relax and mellow out. (He knows how stressful it is having his mother live with us-long story but you get the drift)
So with my 90 yr old mo-in-law here, the wife has to be here, also for the 4 girls/pets.
Anywho, I just could use the quiet down time but at the moment I have three projects starting up this month and it's going to be difficult anyway so it stresses me out just trying to make this whole decision of going or not.
OK, I'm almost into a full blown rant so I'm just going back to working on one of the projects.
Thanks for the interest though and also for the train schedule brewcrew. It looks like that would be a long time on the train when I could drive there in 3-4 hours. I might just chance it if the work is done.
Thanks to all for your replies.
peace

3 or 4 hours doesn't sound that bad but then I'm not in your position. might just be worth it to get away for a few days.
