Was that you? I'm pretty sure I gave you a dirty look when I passed you. I was doing 85 mph in my 68 Rambler.

Drive at your own pace on the interstate, it's easier.

I just did Greenville to Myrtle Beach, I-26 and I-20 and set my cruise on 65mph pulling my 2014 Prime Time Crusader. No problems

Just stay in the right lane and hang around 60mph. Believe it or not, you will get used to it. You have an excuse a LONG trailer behind you. 6-7 hours is about all I want to tow. I will bet you will run into someone going slower than you, and then you have to pass them. Just enjoy the journey.

I must have missed the dirty look. You were but a blur In that thing.

I don't care if I get dirty looks driving 60-65 mph. I worked and saved for 45 years to be able to live this lifestyle when I retired.

Last year, we had a few races in Laurens. I-26 and I-20 were a piece of cake at 65-70 mph. Lots of police though.

If you want to take back roads, go to Spartanburg and take SC 9 South. It goes almost to North Myrtle Beach if that's not too far from your beach destination. I've driven it several times, also. It will take an hour or an hour and a half longer but there's little traffic. I prefer back roads. I drove it once just to avoid heavy interstate traffic the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

Be alert for where SC 9 leaves US 176 near Pacolet. It's easy to miss. If you miss it, just continue to Jonesville and pick up SC 9 there.
Update:

I just read that SC DOT has closed the bridge on SC 9 at Lockhart until at least mid-August. The detour is 35 miles. I withdraw my suggestion of SC 9 as an alternate for the time being.

Thanks

Thanks for all the responses. I will be driving the interstate at 60ish mph. I'll try to stay out of the way when the Rambler goes by.

I-26/ I-20 interchange

You probably already know, but that interchange at I-26 and I-20 is a real bear. We went to Florence last weekend (little league championships) and traffic was a zoo, backed up about a mile. About 3/4 mile away you have to get in the far right lane or someone will have to be nice to you and let you in.

The old cloverleaf intersection is really tight so you have to go slow, then to top it off, there's almost no ramp onto I-20. You just have to hope folks will let you in. Most do, but there are some that aren't too nice.

Good Luck.
