My husband and I are getting ready to go to Virginia. Heading to Danville which is mid-state (east-west) and nearly on the NC state line. We will be travelling on I-77. The most direct route would be to take U.S. Hwy. 58 east to Danville. I know that the first 60 miles or so are 2-lane and it is down-hill all the way. I've been told it's very curvey and there is at least one 9% grade. We have a 32' triple slide fifth-wheel and we pull it with an F-250 Ford Powerstroke (1997). We have an exhaust brake. Has anyone out there actually travelled this highway? Our alternative is to go on north to Roanoke and take U.S. 220 south to Martinsville which is 4-lane all the way. Any suggestions?
