Looking for input on a possible route change for me.

We have been going to Myrtle Beach for years and have always used 95 to Lumberton. 74 East and so on.....

Wife told me she wanted a change in 2 weeks.. possibly taking Rt1 in DE to 113/13 into VA Beach..

from there, either staying closer to the coast by using 11/111/41/40/140/17... - OR - taking 58 back out to 95 in Emporia VA and 95 s from there....

Anybody have any GOOD insight on these, or any suggestions ....

We will be leaving on a Saturday Morning, probably around 6:00 AM or so..

Same thing with going down 13/113. You will be dealing with beach traffic all the way through Delaware and Maryland.

YUP.... told her that.. BUT, we all know how wives listen when they have something in their heads ..[emoticon]

We travel RT 1 from Wilmington to Dewey Beach 4 times a year and she hates the ride, along with our old days of OC MD when we would do 1/ 13/113 .... She is bent om staying off of 95...

If you really just want to stay off 95. Take 81 south to 64 east.
Avoids beach traffic and Balto.,DC, VA chaos.
Puts you back on 95 in Richmond

13 south to The Ches Bay Bridge Tunnel, Rt 13 to I 64 east to Chesapeake Va and then US 17 south. Scenic Non Interstate highway all the way down to Myrtle beach.
Google directions Chincoteague Va to Myrtle Beach.
directions
either Rt 13 or Rt 17 from Chesapeake to Wilmington can be a nice drive, personally I prefer 17.

So long as you are not going through Va Bch on a weekday rush hour time, it wont be that bad. Certainly better than getting around Philthy and Wilmington De.

Is it large fifth wheel friendly route?

thought about that but can't see going 2-1/4 hours west ( that's what it takes for me to get to 81 ) to go south and then East again....... We are located north of Philly about 15 minutes off 95 so staying on the East side is just easier

I've driven all of it, but not in one trip with my A.
Rt 13 from the Md line to the CBBT is a standard 4 lane divided highway, the CBBT is I believe 11' wide lanes with a 13'6" overhead clearance. Rt 13 to I-64 is again standard 4 or 6 lane divided highway, can be busy but just stay in the center/right lanes and you will be fine and basically a straight shot, no turns until you enter I 64, which will be via a right cloverleaf.
Rt 17 in Chesapeake is 2 lane for about 16 miles in the Great dismal swamp, (May be all 4 lane now, been 20 years since I drove that part) once you hit NC all 4 lane divided and a nice easy drive. to Wilmington area.

Thank You, that is exactly what I was figuring.... Now I just need to figure out my fuel stops... Will look for places large enough to get a 41'/13'5" tall fiver into for diesel...
