My wife and I recently re-watched It Happened One Night
, and I got to wondering about the auto-camps in that movie. They must have been prevalent in that time, but I'm wondering if any are left. I'd like to hunt a few down and work them into a road trip. Anyone out there in MeFi-land know of any in the USA?

Can anyone recommend some good stops on Highway I95 between NC and Florida? I'm driving to Florida after Christmas on Highway I95 and thought I'd consult the mefi hive for some suggestions on good stops for food or other things that are worth pulling off the road for periodically. I've driven the route before but I've always wished I knew of better places to eat than the usual chains/fastfood (ugh!) that have saturated the highway offramps. Roadside attractions are welcome, too (but not Pedro's tourist trap emporium at the NC/SC border).

Does anyone have any recommendations for places to stay in Killington (VT) in January? I'm looking for house for a large group (20-25 ppl) for a ski retreat weekend. I've been looking online, but I'm not too sure where to start looking and a lot of the places I have found seem to be booked. [more inside]

Me, my wife, and our 2 sons (3 and 6) need a peaceful, pleasant, and somewhat inexpensive place to stay for 3 days or so near Auckland, NZ. We will have a rental car. Got any suggestions? (Bonus - what's not to be missed with kids, 'round Auckland, Wellington, and Nelson areas?) [more inside]

I'll be making an unexpected trip to Nashville shortly, and am wondering about places to stay on a very tight budget, preferably near the Southern Hills Medical Center. Plus, I don't drive.

Myself and three friends are going skiing at Squaw Valley next weekend and we're looking for a place to stay. We're flexible, but we'd like something cheap, close to Squaw, and preferably with internet access. Any recommendations?

I have a friend coming to visit in mid-March. He usually stays at my place (East Bay, SF Bay area), but just for fun, he'd like to stay at a hotel in the Castro (SF) or thereabouts (wink wink nudge nudge say no more). Anyone know of anyplace reasonably priced (read: cheap) where he could be adventurous, but that doesn't smell of urine (or worse)?

My wife is driving with a friend and out 11-yr old god-daughter from our home in Sacramento down to San Diego, leaving Sunday evening. They expect to be near San Luis Obispo when it's time to pull over and go to sleep. Can anyone suggest a good, interesting, fun or otherwise worthy hotel/motel/inn/b&b in the area?
I hate to ask 2 questions in one day, but you are all so very helpful! Please forgive me.

Monterey or Carmel? Inexpensive weekend hotel/B&B recommendation? Preference is close to the water, less than half a mile, night life not important, yet without blowing my credit card to bits. [NMI]
