Tried all routes

We've tried all of the routes (but not the tunnel through Baltimore, because propane is not allowed). The reality is that 95 and the Key Bridge work out best, it's just prudent to 'time' your trip.

I line in northern N J. The only way to go is 81. Easier drive, NO tolls, less traffic and NO Washington I arrive relaxed after driving 81

Try the Bay Bridge Tunnel. It is fun to do once and you miss most of the garbage traffic.

We did the Bay Bridge Tunnel, both ways, last winter. No real problem. This winter I believe I might try the CM-Lewes Ferry, Annapolis, Richmond route. It's all downhill from Richmond/Emporia.

Been making that trip since I was a kid with my parents. It's all in the timing as previously mentioned. 95 then 695 around Baltimore Key Bridge, No trailers with propane allowed in harbor tunnel. Back to 95/495 around Washington on to 295 around Richmond VA, Then easy riding all the way to FL. I leave from Philly around 1 or 2 in the morning to get me around Washington Before all the GOV people clog the roads.
I have also come home on 301 thru Waldorf beautiful scenery with some red lights but it's nice for a change to get away from 95 regardless of the red lights.

Some are saying to take a "tunnel"...Thought propane tanks were NOT allowed in USA tunnels???????????????? I take GSP and clockwise around Wasshington and Delaware and 95 thru Richmond.(bypass is a terrible rough hwy)

I have been going to Fl from Jersey for the last 30 years. 896 to 301S. to 50W. to 301S. to 95S. At Fort AP Hill. Time of day stay on 95S. Near rush 295S. 3100SS and car trailer, no problems and easy going. Depending on time of day, we stop at a camp ground just before the Potomac River Bridge. Also if you turn off propane, tunnels are OK. Our tanks are DOT approved.

Couple years back I was stopped exiting Baltimore tunnel by authorities and was severely repremanded..... I was not to use the tunnel carrying propane...I said my tanks were "off" and their comment was "What if you were involved in an accident?".......A tanker truck was in front of me!! Go Figure that one out???????

At the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel the toll collector reminded us to turn the propane off before starting. There are 'rest' areas at both ends for this.
