We've been going to MB (Briarcliffe Resort/Coast to Coast) since 2008. This year will be our first trip with a 5er though. So, now......ya'll got me rethinkin' my usual route. My GPS has always gotten me off in Lumburton, NC on Route 74 and taken me southeast from their on Rt. 41 (narrow & little to no shoulder) to 9 to 22 (I think those are the right Route #'s) which dumps me right on Rt. 17 near both Myrtle Beach Travel Park and Briarcliffe Resort.

From MD/PA border (I81) we usually leave around 3am and arrive around 12n. But, I'm pretty beat by then. Last year we left at 11pm, drove to JR's (exit 97 in NC) and took a 2 1/2 hour snooze in the TT and hit the road again, arriving at around 11am or so. This was better cause I didn't feel like I was going to fall asleep on my feet while setting up.

BTW, the route we take to avoid traffic is; I81 to Rt. 17 (Winchester, Va) to 17/I66 (for about 3 miles) the 17 to I95 in Fredricksburg, Va. There are a few hills near Winchester on Rt. 17 but not long ones. I'll probably do that portion of the trip again and just rethink the lower portion.

Anyway, thanks for bringing it up. Now to plan my routes for a safer trip with the larger 5er.

I have a 43 ft fifth wheel and go the same way with no problem. I get off of 9 and get on highway 31 to the end which drops you off on 544 to 17 right at ocean lakes and lake wood campgrounds. I hope this helps. Have fun and safe travels.

Yes, if 544 is the road I'm thinking of, you go straight through the light and into Ocean Lakes. No need to get backed up trying to make a left turn into the campground.
