Looks like the ferry can take 18 wheels up to 50k lbs. just need to make sure I am under 12 ft tall. That is my plan at this point. Will post an update later this week.

Use 95 North to Richmond then take a right on I 64 east, no tunnels to deal with. traffic can be heavy between Petersburg and Richmond depending on time of day, just stay in the right lane, 95n is 4 lanes in that area. Not a bad commute, lots of Rvs.

So chuck you would not go the Jamestown Scotland ferry? The route thru Richmond is an extra 70 miles I was hoping to save each way. Can you tell me anything about hwy 10?

I live in W'burg. When coming home from down South, we take 95 to Richmond and get on 64E. Life's an adventure, try em both!

We just returned from Cape cod,Ma and we traveled I81 from panhandle of Fl. we drove home on different route I95. I95 is horrible with severe potholes,grating on pavement. we found ourselves checking the tire pressure more frequently, thank goodness no blowouts.Make sure you have available cash $$$ for tolls I hope your journey is an enjoyable one. on our way home we stopped at Cape Charles in VA and Stone Mountain in georgia

Here is a Picture of my first Wildcat 27 RL on the James Town Ferry. The Ferry Crew guides you on the Ferry, They are very careful in doing so. The ferries have 3 lanes on each side.

Jamestown-Scotland Ferry

From where I live my first choice would be the Jamestown Ferry, Second Choice would be the James River Bridge. No tunnels

After viewing Frank Va pics on the Ferry, I changed my mind. I am always ready for a boat ride. Forget I64 and I 95 take the Ferry add a twist to your adventure.

Check out these two routes:
First route
I-95 north to US 58 east @ Emporia, VA to Franklin, VA. Take U 258 to Windsor, Virginia. Take US 460 West to Wakefield, VA. Take RT 31 (two lane road) to Jamestown Ferry.

Second Route
I-95 north to US 58 east @ Emporia, VA. to Franklin, VA. Take U 258 to James River Bridge to Hampton, Va. then take I-64 west to Williamsburg, VA.

I am from the general area. It may be a few extra miles/minutes but I would take 95 to 295 to 60 to 30. It will take you right to the the front door of the KOA. Check it out on a map.
