NY to STC II

Well, it's official- the wife has given me her blessings to take the long ride from Long Island NY to the STC in April. As soon as I got the word, I jumped onto Mapquest and got directions. However, this is mostly highway travel. Almost 530 miles on I-81. Not sounding like much fun!

Can anyone make some recommendations on a better, more enjoyable route?

I'm going to post this in the North East forum as well. Any recommendations will be appreciated!

Unless you have oodles of time, there really is no other way to do it and not include at least some of I-81. And you’re right…very boring, dangerous and I-81 through the state of Virginia lasts FOREVER!. You could always pickup US 15 south of Harrisburg, then US 29 at Charlottesville to Greensboro, maybe throwing in a little Skyline/Blue Ridge Parkway along the way and work you way in like that. Somebody will chime in with something better than that I’m sure, but there again without all the time in the world at your disposal you’ll have to do some slab time. Either way, come on down and join in!
