By this tomorrow morning we will be hopefully with in 3-4 hours from Rodanthe if all goes well. The beach pile has been growing everyday and tonight is the night to pack it all up and head for paradise for a week. I cant wait to smell the salty air and watch my kids run out on the beach like they never seen the ocean before (But I wish they would help unpack first lol). Im hoping for safe travels and good weather to all that maybe heading out this weekend.

Same here! I think something has definitely gone wrong with the space-time continuum. IT CAN'T ONLY BE 10:30!!! So much packing left to do...

Have a great Rodanthe trip! FYI, I made the drive this morning down from NoVa. Smooth sailing on 95, through 64 work zones and high rise bridge construction. Traffic was moving nicely. Safe travels and please post a report and pics.

We came last Saturday and left at 11am from 20 miles West of Richmond. I always run 460 route. No bridge at all 3/1/2 hours later. From milepost 3 to 9 is stop and go as stop lights not synced to traffic or just that much on the road and lost 45 minutes. From Whalebone to 5 miles outside Rodanthe was highway speed. Crawled 10mph or less until past Campgrounds, then smooth sailing to Avon.

Have fun and be safe. The week flies.

This gives me hope (other than there being "no bridge at all" Tounge smiley). We always try to leave early and always fail! Coming from north of Richmond, and going to try the 460 route as well.

OH goodness, I hope everyone is ok after some crazy storms it looks like!
Driving to Raleigh on Saturday late we got caught in some nasty storms just as we were crossing the Alligator River...scariest stuff we have ever been in.
Hope you are enjoying in spite of the crazy weather!
