Thank You, that is exactly what I was figuring.... Now I just need to figure out my fuel stops... Will look for places large enough to get a 41'/13'5" tall fiver into for diesel...


I know Royal Farms along 113 and 13 have started to build their newer stations with truck islands so I would keep a eye out for them, below the CBBT I could not tell you what to watch for.

THX..

I saw last night that Royal Farms has a few South on 113/13 with a newer one with truck lanes a few miles before the CBBT...

Thats good, now for the lower portion !

If you really just want to stay off 95. Take 81 south to 64 east.
Avoids beach traffic and Balto.,DC, VA chaos.
Puts you back on 95 in Richmond


thought about that but can't see going 2-1/4 hours west ( that's what it takes for me to get to 81 ) t.o go south and then East again....... We are located north of Philly about 15 minutes off 95 so staying on the East side is just easier

I agree if you are that far from 81,the CBBT route is OK.
But their are lots of lights involved and there will be beach traffic

I'd say stick to your guns on 95 but no way on a weekend. The beach traffic on US 13 to the CBBT will all be east west with the exception of the Outer Banks traffic that will disappear in Chesapeake VA. Your early start time should beat that rush.
The new Royal Farms station with diesel truck lanes is 3 miles north of the CBBT and there is a lobster roll food truck next door on weekends.
We lived on the Eastern Shore for 20 years and the key to 13 is just hang back and take it easy. They have improved the light timing somewhat over the years but it can get frustrating at times.
You are going to have a long day whichever route you choose. The lack of law enforcement since covid has turned 95 into a very dangerous race track with massive accidents every weekend causing very long delays thru NC
If you end up on 95 for part of the trip run Wase for slow down alerts and be aware of where you can jump over to 301 thru NC.

We have traveled US-113/13/17 from DE to Florida every year for the past 15 years. The roads have improved with many new stretches of 4 lane bypass around congested areas. I-240/US-17 is now complete around Wilmington, NC. Depending on where in Myrtle Beach you are going, SC-31 will help avoid a lot of the stop and go and has several exits to take you back to US-17.

We do try to avoid travelling on the weekends. As mentioned, there are Royal Farms stations before the CBBT that either have truck lanes or diesel on the outside pumps. There is a station (Speedway I think) on US-17 just North of New Bern, NC on the righthand side of the road that has truck lanes. Further South there are Shell and Circle K stations that have easy access for long rigs.


Safe travels!

** UPDATE **

Thanks to all who responded, we took 13/113/23 to Cape Charles VA for fuel ( only at 1/2 but wanted a stop for mom in law..

Then took the CBBT into Norfolk, 64/264 to 59 to 11/13.. i have to say the trip was fantastic….

Took us 12.5 hours from start to finish pulling the camper… we had torrential downpours on and off for about 4 of those hours.. We stopped for 3 bathroom breaks, and 2 fuel stops… Eastern PA to Myrtle Beach, 600 miles.
