Yeah, that's the route. I just was too lazy to type all of the different interstates out.

Lazys not supposed to start till vacation starts! LOL

You have a full days drive from Anchor Down to Pirateland. I would make that a 2 day trip with a overnight at barnyard in Columbia, SC, but I don't like to drive over 5-6 hours a day.

I think we're going to do that stretch in one day. Especially after staying multiple nights at AnchorDown. The long drive doesn't bother me.

We live in Columbia SC, just a mile from I26. Dreher Island St Park is our favorite campground, off of Exit 91.

We stay at Myrtle Beach St Park, about 2 miles from your destination.
We do not take I20 to Florence.

Take I26 toward Charleston and then I77 to Hwy 378 all the way to Conway; and then 501 to MB. There is a Subway and gas station east of Sumter, as you come to I95

About 5 miles east of I95 is a town call Turbeville. DO NOT SPEED here. If you are coming into MB on a Saturday the traffic will be terrible no matter which route you take.

We go on Sunday afternoon and leave Friday morning. All the old week style time shares are from Sat to Sat.

Thanks, I forgot to mention about avoiding entering or leaving MB from I-95 on a Saturday. If possible.

Thanks, this is great. We are coming in on a Monday, so we thankfully won't have to worry about that.

I just drove your planned route a few days ago after returning from our cross country trip. Didnt have the TT in tow but just to let your know there are a few tight spots outside Asheville heading towards the SC line on that interstate where some road construction is going on and several miles of temp cement baracade walls are in place in the twisty parts. Have a save ride down and hit me up some time while in Pirate Land. Were going over there tomorrow for a "stay-cation" before I have to go back to work. Oh... try to come in early morning or late evening. Traffic on 501 and 544 is a nightmare with renters/vacationers funeling into the CGs.

I took that exact route in reverse. We came from Pirateland, to the Biltmore in Asheville, and then back 40 to 75 back home to Ohio. There are a couple good hills, and a couple tunnels but it's not bad. Then again I was pulling a 4k lb camper with a 3/4 ton diesel so I couldn't really tell it was back there.

I'd say your travels on 40 from the Gatlinburg area to Asheville will be the most stressful/ exciting. Once you get through Asheville it's going to be a whole lot of downhill.
