I'm strongly considering doing the Transcontinental from Yorktown to Astoria (westbound). I'm from Denmark and need to touch down in an international airport close by. Of course the easiest thing would be Washington Dulles but I really hate heavy congested traffic and would avoid it at all costs. Of course Washington Dulles requires plenty of cycling along non mapped routes (some of it along the atlantic coast route also). Is there an easy way of getting on an Amtrak train from Washington to Yorktown?
An interesting option would be arrival in Salisbury/Ocean city and take the ferry across the Chesapeake bay.
To those of you who have started at Yorktown, how did you get there? And were you satisfied with the way of doing it. Could it be done better?
