How far from Rodanthe would the Airport be? We are driving to Rodanthe but then flying to Atlanta to see family.

Husky,

According to my "Streets and Trips": 110 mile from Radanthe to Norfolk. 2 hrs and 40 minutes running 55-60.

Depends on when you leave. Saturday morning can take you 3 hours with the tourist traffic. Other times, it's 2.5 without any stops.

That's really gonna suck! We couldn't get anything but a 6 AM flight. That means being there at 4 and leaving Rodanthe at 2 AM.

What a vacation! This should be filmed. Grumpy family leaves vacation for another "vacation".

In the middle of my comical episode I forgot to mention the Norfolk airport is not your typical post 9/11 security outpost, and it's also a small one (less crowded) compared to the Baltimore one. So, I'm not sure the 2 hr. before the flight rule is necessary, especially @ 0600. Oh yeah, I just made the flight from here to Balt. & back just 2 wks. ago, good luck and call ahead to confirm this.

Husky,

Jay B has a very good idea about calling ahead for info. I had a 0600 departure and went with the 0400 show up time. Security personnel were the only ones there. Regular airlines staff started showing up at 0445 for a 0500 opening. Good luck!
