I was not try to give him direction but routes to consider as alternatives. Locally i would use rt 1 but thats me. I hate tolls and feel they have exceeded their usefulness so I avoid them in favor of a little longer ride. I also hate traffic backups and will simply go somewhere else to continue driving just so i don't have to stop and go and stop and go well you get it.

As for the google: just google up traffic maps and there you are. the DW can look down the road on the map and see half an hour ahead for traffic conditons. Just be sure to drill down in the map to see both side of the highway like on 95 north south lanes. If not you may think there is traffic ahead but it may well be the other side.

our last ride south we saved an easy hour of backup by getting off and hitting bypass roads to the west of 95. I normally just leave my waypoint in the garmin and keep driving in any direction around the bottleneck and eventually we get back to the main road.

I really like my travel routes as they are normally flat and no traffic. Just wish there was a go around for sections of Virginia. Thought thing were good while the HOV lanes were there but now they are restricted to easypass only.

No brainier.
We took the Mass pike to 84 and then 81 to 75 and we made it without any weather issues or traffic issues. The campground is really nice and we have a huge spot. We took a tour of Fort Benning yesterday and its way way bigger than we both thought it would be. Thanks for all the help and suggestions everyone, Mike & Yo

So glad you had a good trip. Earlier I wrote that my neighbor had the name DIgger. That was from his family history of military duty in Australia. Any connection with you?

Definitely not. My last name is DeGaetano and I got the nickname Digger in high school and I really didn't care for it but it stuck
