That stretch of road is frequently red both ways on any random day.

29 and I-81 were smooth sailing today. If you haven't left yet, I highly recommend it. Or at least take it on your way home. I've taken 29 dozens of times for over 15 years, and I think I've hit traffic on it only once. It's about an hour extra to start (depending on where in the DC area you are going) but oftentimes the lack of traffic makes it shorter. Plus the beautiful scenery makes it a relaxing, enjoyable ride.

it tells you something about the Triangle when most people assume a city up north, when somebody says "Columbia"... I would have never thought of anywhere else but S.C., especially with the "US 1" remark.

I've done Columbia, SC before and it's not that bad. Give me the back roads any day over an interstate...

SC is definitely the first/only Columbia I thought of
