The exit for 301 off 95 is 104 ( a huge truck stop refueling stations everywhere)

I personally like to be on the move so I prefer the Springfield route better ( no stop and go unless you hit it around rush hour)
It may be too early in the am for me but when you say the Springfield route is that I-95 ?

Thanks Rob for the clarification sorry about that. The new ramps taking you to the inner and outer loops are much improved over the ones that were there. Construction is ongoing but usually with few or no lanes closed. Much better than it was before.

I may just plan on leaving after rush hour from the sand bar here. Orignally wanted some sort of day light to keep my eye on things.
