I am surprised no-one has mentioned it, but maps.google.com lets you choose a date/time to depart and you can play around with times and routes easily to plan the trip. It's usually pretty accurate.

Last time I drove up to NH, it was nothing but traffic and road construction. Awful.

My standalone garmin had the garmin equivalent of the blue screen of death.....when nothing happens and you blow past your exit before realizing its crashed. Having Google as a back up proved mighty convenient.

That's not going to help you if there is an accident causing a traffic delay.

But OB1 with all your 15 yrs of experience you should account for the 895 tunnel summer repairs

Btw 50mins on a C2.? .........Puss e. LOL


Also the Maryland Inn is across from Pusser at the end of the canal ( where the Boat show starts )

From the De Memorial Bridge it took me on average an hour in a Range Rover or 50 mins in the C2 turbo.

There is only one waterfront hotel in Annapolis, the Marriot. Hotel is ok, but Pusser's (honey dip central) is downstairs on the waterfront side

Neither is us telling him the best way to go It's a planning tool! i don't disagree he should use something while on the road, but this thread is about when he should make the trip isn't it?

6.5 hours to eternity.... Time ur drive based on rush hour traffic. For a quick trip it's generally best to leave really really early or try to be past providence just after rush hour

I have the Mass Turnpike "FastPass" does that work through the mid-atlantic?


Paul, I'd skip Providence altogether and skip I-95 in CT as that road sucks. I'd do MassPike to 84 to 91 in CT, then reconnect to 95.

that accounts for two breakdowns and extra time for drug-sniffing dogs searching the 3rd world mules on board.
that reminds me of the Fung-Wah bus lines between Boston-NYC, where you had less than a 50% chance of getting there without incident. There busses are white and used to have their name on the side and now all markings have mysteriously disappeared. In any event avoid those busses like they were the plague (as a passenger or as a motorist), they are accidents waiting to happen.

Nope Old Maryland Inn is the Triangle shaped building @ Church Circle @ the top of the hill. Had one of my wedding receptions there.....Treaty of Paris restaurant is in the basement/street level. Oldest continually operating tavern/pub in N.America


Across from Pussers was the Harbor Masters building and then Phillips seafood, no idea what that building has become. Its not a canal its "Ego Alley aka City Dock". The building @ the inland end of ego alley is now called the Market House in an attempt to be PC but but was originally the slave auction building when the slavers pulled into Annapolis. There are historic makers there for Kunta Kinte and Alex Haley, ie the dude who wrote Roots.

C2 time was my "average" That car saw lots of 140+ mph work, @ those speeds you look way down the road, not @ the gauges. It died the same death as that Lambo you showed me @ the Toy Store that you tore up.

Ok ok Captain Crunch it is not a Canal ( damn boaters LOL )

But don't they have the 3 hotels and one is at the bottom of the hill?


LOL In my best Bill Clinton voice " to the best of my knowledge I have no recollection of the events regarding the alleged Lambo incident " Ms Rugbier knows nothing about the incident and I like living in my house :-)

A quick stop at Middleton Tavern for oyster shooters is part of the routine for this damn boater. Sort of primes you for the rest of the weekend.

I like McGarveys better, locals go there. Shame Riordans closed. On the other side of the bridge/Eastport I like The Davis Pub (the steamed shrimp rule). I shy away from Boat Yard Bar & Grill just because its a tourist/blow boater kinda trap. Annapolis is a funny town. The guy next to you @ the bar with the sun bleached t shirt and worn out boat shoes is far more likely to be an extremely wealthy guy than the brightly colored tourist with the signal flag belt and leather crocs. I usually went out with a group of girls and it was great to sit and listen to them analyze the patrons.


As much as I love Annapolis and the shenanigans I got away with there/ memories made, I'm starting to like Beaufort as much, or more.
