I would like to know if anyone has had trouble with the traffic down 81 to 95 during the US thanksgiving. Or should I stay home until Monday after everyone has made there way back to work

Based on a little past experience, I predict that traffic won't be bad on Thanksgiving Day but will be the days leading up to it and after. Don't know specifically about those highways. I think it's one of the most traveled periods.

The Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving can be tough going through most of the US. The Friday after is usually light because people are trying to snag black Friday deals. Sunday is bad, but Saturday can go either way.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

We plan to leave MI and go south to Fla on Monday. Staying off I*95 or i-75 avoiding large cities during their rush hours. Should not be a problem if we are smart. Weather might be a bigger problem this year.

I don’t travel on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving nor the first Sunday after. Otherwise I go!

The VT/UVA game is 1200 Friday. Traffic on I-81 is terrible before and after the game between I-64 and Blacksburg.

Travel Thanksgiving day around 3-5 pm and there will be almost nobody on the road as everybody will be in the midst of gorging themselves on food.

We travel I-95 in NC and VA every Thanksgiving. We depart on Tuesday before and go home on Monday morning. Wednesday and Sunday are the worst. Also, once you get south of Richmond things are much better, regardless of the day. North of Richmond all the way up the East Coast = nightmare!
