l_etoileyahoocom 24 Jul 2006 Hi. I will be driving down to the "World" via the I-81 from Binghamton, N.Y. in early August and was wondering if someone could tell which of the following two routes would be the better one to take. At Harrisburg, Pa., would it better to stay on the 81 straight through to Strasburg, Va. and then take the 66 and 17 into Fredericksburg and onto the 95, or would it be better to get off the 81 at Harrisburg, take the 83 and the 695 (Baltimore) before merging with the 95? The latter (83, 695) is shorter, which intrigues me, but as it does pass in and around the Baltimore and D.C.areas, would it be a wiser choice to bite the bullet (40 or so extra miles) and stick with the 81 through Strasburg and avoid what could be a ton of traffic? I'll be passing through on a Friday around noon. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. -Danielle.
