For the first and second day we followed the TransAmerican route laid out in 1976. Since then we followed US 250 to Waynesboro . There I picked up 340 to US 11 which the Interstate route parallels. Today I had the finest ride yet in Virginia. US 11 was in places like an interstate with 4 lanes separated by a wide median. When it did narrow down it was with a center turn lane. There was very little traffic today while on US 11.
It is my intent to follow US 11 until it picks up the TransAm at 80 in Meadowview.
By not following the mapped route we probably have a lot more heavy traffic. But we also encounter more services too.
