Our plan was to leave Woodbridge, VA around 7pm after work for Greensboro, NC. We would stay at the Comfort Suite hotel and head to Asheville the next morning.
We packed a lot of food; spaghetti, ham, cheese, and rolls so we can save money on the trip. The traffic at night is good. I admit it is not fun to drive in the dark but it's better than being stuck in traffic.
