I live south about 10 min from Gillette. We are def plotting side routes. 95s straight through was my facetious no-gps route.

I've taken 220 (I think) to my brothers in Lancaster PA. that's on the table too. Once I get south of MA though I haven't driven in forever.

We're driving to the Wilmington area to scout real estate.

It will be a two day drive then a week in the area. We're going to lay-over somewhere after the way point.

next is whether to go to Annapolis after Deleware Bridge on 95 or detour 301 via eastern shore Cheseepeak Bay Bridge, BW parkway 395 to 95S Richmond. 295 bypass Richmond.

Anything in the DC area remotely close to rush hour and by that I mean, 3PM on in the evening DON'T DO IT. You cant get clear until past Fredericksburg it is hands down the worst traffic on the East Coast.

Then the long drive into NC, stay fast and avoid speed traps I go 95 to 40 for North or South points, Raleigh Winston Salem mountains. Never head into Eastern NC on all these two lane shortcuts at night, go 40 to 17 then traverse. So many head ons and people hitting deer, farm equipment etc you can't believe it.
