Driving to the Dragon

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine has a cabin in the general area of the Dragon, so we were discussing routes. She said that she hates taking 81 because of the trucks and if it's an off time she'll take 95 down because it has more lanes and moves better.

 

I looked on Google Maps and the difference is about 9 minutes more taking 95 south through Greensboro vs 81.

 

Has anyone else tried this route?

It's been suggested to us too, since 95 has more lanes and less truck traffic. But we're leaving Wednesday morning. We'd hit all sorts of DC commuter traffic.

Because I live in Hagerstown I always take I-81. That being said heavy

 

truck traffic is mostly on a Friday and Sunday nights. In the past I make

 

Knoxville from Hagerstown in a tad over six hours. You will have no prob-

 

lem with I-81.

Mark and I will be leaving Asheville on Wed morning and heading to the Dragon from there. I figure we'll arrive around noon since we're going to grocery shop on the way. I hear Asheville has some really good grocery stores, even a Whole Foods. Along with outdoor farmers markets and all kinds of healthy food options. We'll be going from a healthy food mecca to a twisty mecca
