I know, the hills are what scare me but so does DC. I just found another route taking 17 off 81 and hitting 95 between DC and Richmond.

Rt 64 is a more open highway
Rt 17 takes you through every little town


According to Google maps, 64 is 60 miles and 35 minutes more than 17 but you're right about small towns. I dunno................. ;)

Traffic Lights ;)

I think we're taking a little different route this year. Last year we drove to Scranton PA, then south on 81 to 70/270 to DC to 95. I think I'm going to stay on 81 this year through Roanoke then south on 77 through Charlotte NC, Columbia SC, then to 95. The scenery down 81 through VA should be cool.

Any input on this route?


That's the route I take when I drive between Atlanta & VT...81 & 77 (then I hop on 85 in Charlotte to get to GA). I've never been towing a camper, so I can't speak about the grade in the mountains, and I think I've only gone through once when it WASN'T foggy, but I've always had a pretty good drive that way.

81 sucks. I mean I live right off it ... Make sure you keep an eye on the radio for traffic backups they are doin a bunch of would through Blacksburg and it can be a huge mess not sure where u are coming from but if u hit 460 in West Virginia and come thru to Blacksburg then to roanoke the drive is amazing. We go that way everytime to ohio... Once you get through roankke the scenery is okay on 81 ... Just a lot of spots that are 2 lanes.... And a lot of trucks... I guess we will do that same route from roanoke to get there ;)
