South of the border- Stayed there last year for a night on the way to Ft Wilderness from Massachusetts. Its an open field, clean, cheesey. Ok for a stopover. Certainly easy on easy off. Bunch of tourist trap stores and restaurants.
Actually a nice contrast to the Fort, which is awesome!

81 is hilly and lots of truck traffic but I agree it is better than 95. Where 26 and 95 meet can be a mess sometimes with traffic backups. It just depends on the day and if it is close to a holiday.

I agree with Taranwanderer & nineback. take the extra time and go I-81. the traffic & tolls from Philly to DC are horrible at any time of day. The tolls for a car would be about $30 alone, probably doubled with a trailer, or more...
and I personally cant stand the boring scenery through VA & nothing but pine trees in the Carolinas.
I-81 is hilly but much better scenery, CHEAPER, and lot less stressful.

Don't worry Silver Back I will. Wife and kids are bonkers about it. Should have waited a few months to tell them. Taranwander let me know how you make out. I did 95 to Annapolis, it was a nightmare. And that was in a car. I'm rt off 84 so 84-81 is easy. Wondering how much more mtns etc. plus I hate the concrete on 81 bobbing the rig. Wondering if that ever clears up. DBLr that site is crazy. People are legitimately obsessed with this place.

We've done this trip a couple of times from Wayne County NEPA. We take I-81 to I-66 to US 17 to I-95 to get out off the winter weather ASAP. Fredricksburg KOA is OK for an overnight stop; then Pedro's @ South of the Border (cheap just basics); then Kingsland, GA and finally WDW.

Goose killer, yes you are right, they are obsessed but they will be the first ones to offer information and also first if you need help there or on the way to the Fort, trust me I know this for a fact, they are very helpful. Have a great trip and a safe one and for the record we use the 301 route to get around Balt. & D.C.
