Hi All. Next month we'll be travelling from Wilmington N.C. to Erie,Pa. We've never made this trip so are unfamiliar with the roads. We thought to travel our first day to Charleston for an overnight stay, then rt 79 the next day to Erie. A shorter route would be to overnoght in Beckley, then take Rt. 19 to 79 to Erie. Rt 19 is about 60 miles shorter, but is this a "local" road with lots of traffic and traffic lights? Thanks in advance for any help.
