We are planning out a trip down to Morehead City.

Generally speaking do you take 95 all the way down or do you take Route 13? I have made the trip once to the outer banks and we took Route 13.

Take 13 it is the much better route....just remember that VA is radar detector unfriendly.... And I have never found that taking the ferry is worth the time. We take the NJ turnpike all the way south and then do the rt13 thing that way....

I go there often to visit mom and dad. In delaware take Rt 1 to dover then rt 113 to pokomoke city is the nicest ride. Take 264 through norfolk area then rt 17south to rt 70 to MHC. 10 hrs from TR area. You can save 5 -10 minutes going rt 95 but you can loose hours in that Washington beltway. My suggestion is avoid rt 95 at all costs. Catch em up.

Went to manteo 2wks ago

Be sure toget on 113 vs13' although there is a little more distance their fewer lights and is an easier to drive

Nice thing about ferry is its a nice break lewes del to manteo was just about 5 hr

Have a good and safe trip

I know ur used to traffic but dc beltway etc really sucks and traffic very heavy

Take 113 to 13 both ways... When I graduated school and moved down to Chesapeake, VA to work at Norfolk Naval Shipyard, I always drove the bridge tunnel and ferry back and forth to NJ. The ferry is great to break up the ride and you can always take a quick nap or grab a beer too. :thumbsup: You can also stop out on the observation areas for the bridge tunnel and stretch your legs. There are a few sea food places on the northern side of the Bay Bridge that sell little neck clams in bags of 50. Highly recommend.. :D

So do I need to lower my fuzzbuster out of visible range, or put it away entirely. After a couple million miles with one I can't imagine driving without

Peter-

I always go 13. It's just a much nicer drive and the bay bridge tunnel is cool.

Make sure you watch your speed though the small DE/MD/VA towns.

Lock it up and put it in trunk

They have zero tolerance for radar detectors.. I would have it off and disconnected and out of the passenger compartment just to be on the safe side.

You know how they feel about us 'Yankees'. I went to University of Va so I know first hand.

Everyone,

Thanks for the great feedback.

We will be fishing on Feb 24 & 25. The first day we will be fishing with Captain John on the Procrastinator. We will be bottom fishing, as well as jig for blackfins and cobia (providing that they are around).

Our second day boat just fell through, so we are exploring some options in the Morehead City area. If anyone has sme personal favtories, please send them my way. Thanks again.

I takes Route 13 - 113 - 13 when I fish Oregon Inlet/Hatteras, but I like drive Rt 95 when I fish Morehead/Sneads Ferry/Whillington, NC.
It is about 90 - 100 miles more by taking Rt95, but I try to avoid local traffic where the speed limit constantly changes from 45 miles, 50 miles to 55 miles and Maryland/ Virginia/NC are notorious for giving tickets.

Speed limit in Southern Virginia and NC is 70 miles on Rt 95.
If you avoid rush hours, the traffic around Washington, DC is not bad at all.

U.S. Air, PHL / ORF (Norfolk, VA), then about a one hour drive along the banks.....usually averages $250 round trip, inclusive of shipping 100# of fresh bluefin back :). Hate long drives myself, so this to me would be optimum route.....plus allows for in/out with two days of fishing over a weekend if schedule warrants.

Tight Lines,

Frank
