I would be careful about killing time up here though. 95 between dc and fredericksburg is AWFUL. construction, city traffic, beach traffic...it took me 6 hours in June to get to Williamsburg, and that was leaving at 10 am. I'd try to do that stretch before 9 or after 7 if at all possible.
Leaving the Baltimore area after 7 would be OK with us. Google Maps says it is 2.5-3 hrs from Baltimore to Richmond, leaving after 7 would get us in around 10ish. My current plans are to hit Richmond, sleep and then hit the road bright and early.
