Default Route Planning NC - Philly



Advertise Here

I found myself in an unfortunate situation. I have to travel from Eastern North Carolina to Philadelphia. I usually take I-95 all the way up, I can deal with the traffic but here is the unfortunate part.... I have to travel on Jan 20th (Inauguration Day). I would love to avoid DC at all cost as I feel the crazies will be out. Any recommended alternate routes I could take? Thanks

It's a lot of extra miles or slow going any other route. A lot of people take 64 west at Richman and use 81 up to the Pa turnpike.

I don't care about extra miles. I don't want to be anywhere near it. If I drove up through Norfolk and took the C Bay Bridge would that bypass DC?

Are you referring to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel? Yes you will bypass the FRDC. But like the other poster stated it will be stop and go with traffic lights.

Take 13 in MD then onto to either RT 50 or 301. 301 will take you through Delaware and into PA. Or you can get onto 50 take the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

If you stay on 50 it will take you into DC. Stay on a Northerly track use RT 97 or RT 2 over to 895 and jump onto 95.

I would use 81 before 13. 13 has a speed trap in every town and 35 mph zones.

I will probably take the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Might as well enjoy the view.

This is the secret. I prefer to travel when no one else is on the road.

Maybe you should leave a day early and get a room, hell stay 2 nights and the return traffic won't be so bad either.

Be sure you study the laws in Md. If you plan to carry on your trip. Unloaded, gun and ammo separate, and not in the passenger compartment. To me that seems strange for a state that is home of the Baltimore riots.

Also, be prepared to LOSE your weapon to the Polizei even if you have it stored and locked legally! They WILL take it! ("For YOUR safety!") And if you ARE stopped and either they discover or you declare your weapon, you WILL be "cuffed and stuffed" (again, "For YOUR safety"!). I would stay well clear of MD and NJ whenever travelling! Not worth the hassle and forfeiture of your rights and property! And if you travel through NJ and have a weapon AT ALL, you are DONE! Your permit or whatever means NOTHING there! (Or in MD either!)

Here is route I would take; take 95 N to just past Richmond, then Rte 207 over to 301. Take 301 N through southern/central Maryland. Once up near Baltimore jump back over on 95 to Philly. You will have some stop light traffic in Waldorf, Bowie, and Crofton but never real bad, after that GTG. I travel 301 alot between King George, Va. and South of Baltimore.

Hmmmm.......Can you point to any instances (case etc.) where a weapon was seized outside of a search incident to arrest? Can you point to any statute (just one) contained in the COMAR, Transpiration Articles or Annotated code of MD where you are "cuffed and stuffed", on a simple traffic stop outside of an arrest?

C'mon lets stay on the thread subject. The OP wanted info on an alternate route away from DC, not your subjective views on MD and MD LE.

OP 301 will be longer, but if will take you up through to Bear Delaware, get onto 95.....Philadelphia is a 40 minute ride...give or take, and you won't go anywhere near NJ.

Don't bring hollow points into NJ. (Better yet don't go into NJ.) Possession of hp's of any kind is illegal in NJ.

My advice is to take the route you always take. The real traffic comes from the government workers going into the city. They aren't working that day because of the Inauguration.

So, the total number of people in DC is going to be a lot less than normal.

The traffic will actually be lighter.
