Here it is Tuesday and I’m still trying to figure out the best way on to Avon, NC. Reading the forums here about the traffic making me adjust my travel times and routes. We will be leaving Ft Myers, Florida, Friday about 3 pm. Were not scheduled to check in until Saturday at 4pm. The plan was to drive all the way thru maybe ????? If there were no traffic going I 95 to 64 to the coast would have been the fastest. The other option would be getting off I 95 at Lumberton to Wilmington and taking the coast all the way up including the two ferry’s which add on about 3.5 hours of time.???? I would prefer to go out of my way to avoid stop n go traffic. But, would the southern route also be congested as the northern route going on to the islands? How about time of day arriving?? If we get into the area after 11pm Friday night going in either direction, how would traffic be? I know the ferry’s prolly don’t run that late but we can sit and wait if we must. I have the ferry schedules somewhere, I’ll look later.
We are also trailering our Jeep up along with us to enjoy driving on the beaches and sightseeing. What kind of fee’s will there be? And where do we go for passes?
Please any advice from your past experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much. TJ
