Went most of the way down that way a few yrs ago, was heading to Roanoke as a general destination. We got off 95 in Augusta and never got on the slab again. 202 across to NH. Down thru Laconia and over brattleboro for the night. Went across Molly Stark trail to Bennington VT, crossed into NY and crossed the Hudson near Saugerties, then 9 for awhile, then 209 to Port Jervis. Went down thru the Delaware Water Gap thru Bushkill, night two in East Stroudwater. 209 again to 895 to Hamburg (bigass Cabelas in Hamburg). Then just followed whatever roads thru the Amish Country to Intercourse and New Holland. Went thru Lancaster , then 30 thru York, 15 to Gettysburg for night 3 at the Eisenhower Resort. Next morning made a run to Front Royal.
Then 60 miles down Skyline Drive. Dying hurricane coming up thru Roanoke, so we went east to Richmond for the night. Ended up in Virginia Beach for the night there. Ran the Chesapeake Bay bridge and DeMarVa all the way up 13 to New Smyrna, crossed the Delware and then back out thru Amish Country to Lancaster again, spent the night in York Back 30 and side roads to
East Stroudsburg and the Water Gap . Made it to Saugerties again for the night. Next day we went thru Pittsfield Mass and North Adams thru the Berkshires. Mass 2 to 10, up to Keene, 9/202 to Concord, then 202 all the back to Augusta, 95 home. Last day was a 550 miler, the boss was in tears after 14 hours in the saddle.
Unless I had all kinds of time, I think I'd take the fast route down, Run the interstate except to go around cities, and get down there in a couple days or so. Then take a week to come home, maybe.
I reject your reality, and replace it with my own..
