3'senough......Sorry I couldn't get the quote to work. By all means if you know the 113 route go that way. There have been no improvements on 13 regarding bypasses and such. In fact there is now a Casino at the State Fair Grounds in Harrington DE, which adds to the traffic from Dover South . The speed traps along Rte 13 are legendary....one guy outside of one of the small towns actually posted a sign in his yard that said "Careful Speed Trap Ahead" I haven't been down that way in awhile not sure if it's still there.

I was just trying not to confuse the issue with that side route.

Thanks for the feedback. If I were towing that's the way I would go as there are more open 55MPH areas along that route and a heck of a lot less lights. It can be a little tricky getting on it coming from the north but some planning ahead and a map will get you there. I usually enter OC as a point in my route on the GPS as backup so it keeps me directed that way vs 13.

I'll send an update after my trip this month on any new snags.

drive from Kingston Ontario Canada to the Outerbanks - OBX

Trying to find a good spot to stop over for one night before getting to Camp Hatteras.
Our first stop will be near Allentown PA (KOA) and plan on driving about 300 miles.
Debating wether we should stop before the bridge tunnel or after.
How is the Kiptopeke SP?
Any Suggestion for after the tunnel that would not take me far off route?

Boubou. I think it would be wise to stop before the CBBT. Once you get over that bridge it goes from very rural, farm to city on the other side. 300 miles could be tough or easy depending on the how you hit some of the lights and traffic through DE. You will be stopping and going from Dover south. It's a beautiful area and has great views of the Chesapeake bay on the east side so I think it's worth the stop. Only about 5-10 miles from the bridge. Then you can get up in the AM and hit the bridge for your final run. Norfolk can have some traffic so keep that in mind on your timing. There is a food store about 3 miles from that CG and WM about 30 miles before should you need something for the overnight.

Tip:I don't know if you have one or can get one but EzPass will dramatically lower your travel times on some of the highways with tolls. I have one for my rig (blue) and just my truck (white) which gets me discounts on the tolls. Most people say the white works but you need to go through the service windows with them. Otherwise you are paying retail. You can pick them up on the thruway in NYS but I am not sure about the international regs.

I didn't look into it, no time (was sick before the trip) but it was a bit expensive and didn't really like all the stop and go.
