Well, I'm still planning to come and believe my better half is still good to go.
Scott (Blind Squirrel),
When I head up that way, I do head up 17 initially ... but about 7.5 miles past Walter Reed Hosp (on the north side of Glouster CH) I peel off left onto 14 (Adner Rd > Buena Vista > The Trail).
When 14 "The Trail" hits Hwy360, there's several backroad options from there up and around Fort AP Hill to the south and west side. They're all more fun than US-17 and far fewer LEOs (like pretty much none).
Edit: They aren't faster routes, but definitely more fun and prettier.
