All info is greatly appreciated
Head towards I-81, possibly on I-90 at Syracuse which is easiest, but is a fairly expensive section of road. Follow I-81 to Roanoke, I-581/US220. Staying on US220 and it will take you right into Martinsville. As far as level - that's about as good as it gets. It is a major truck route, and follows the Shenandoah Valley. 220 out of Roanoke to Rocky Mount is quite hilly, but only about 20 or so miles but I had no problem hauling my 11,00 pound 5er that way.
As a recommendation - and if you try another route to connect via NY 17 to I-81, be advised that NY17 makes a corn cob look smooth (or at least it did 2-3 years ago)
(Hmmm - we need to go to Rocky Mount in October and Martinsville is only 25 miles away ...... race .... hmm, but Oct 30 is too late
