One word of caution for those not use to traveling the I95 corridor, NEVER trust I95 between Fredericksburg and DC, Northbound in the am and southbound in the pm. May be great may be a parking lot. More often than not it is a parking lot. Northbound backups start as early as 5:00am Southbound can start as early as 2:00pm. Unless you are in possession of several gallons of patience avoid I95 like the plague, whenever possible.
We definitely want to avoid the DC Metro area and that is why we were looking at 81 to 66 to 17 ... but maybe we should stay on 95 @ Fredericksburg and go to 30 (and then 33) and across that way ??

Well, this route will definately work.

That route is a lot of 2 lane road across to 33. I don't want to tell you what to do but I wouldn't want to travel that distance on Rt.30. Take a look at I95S to Rt.3 East to Rt2/17 South to Rt17 East. After looking at this route, I'm going to go 3E to 2S to 17E.
