We've done the trip between these two locations, both directions always taking the route I-81 to I-77 to I-26 to I-95. We always split it in half and make our midway stop at I-81 and I-77. I'm aware of the hill climb everyone talks about on I-77 crossing over the Blue Ridge Parkway along the border of Virginia and North Carolina, and the RV with toad does just fine, and this elevation issue doesn't bother us.
Looking at the alternative route of I-95 to US 17 to I-64 to I-81.
Total distance is about the same, so a few questions.
Halfway is just North of Virginia and North Carolina border. Anyone suggest a good campground nearby I-95....easy on/off and pull through sites?
I-295 around Richmond versus I-95 through it?
US 17 good road? Two lane? Many traffic signals/speed zones?
Looking for your input with thanks.
