Cross Country Route Question

Hey everyone!
I'll be doing a cross country ride this summer starting in Santa Monica, Ca. taking route 66 to about Springfield, Missouri...what I'm trying to find is a good route from Springfield to Charleston, NC.

See attached map.

Thanks!

Looks like you can take the Trans America route to get to N Carolina.

My bad...I meant Charlotte, NC. Too much time on the PC and not enough on the bike

Just to Charlotte and not to the coast?
Have you ever been to Ocracoke Island? Oooooooh - -
Lovely ferry ride from Swan Quarter or Cedar Island out to Ocracoke.
2+ hours - $3 for bike & rider - best ferry deal in the US of A.

Used to live in Chapel Hill.
From the TransAm at Damascus, Virginia - get on the Virginia Creeper Trail - sweet.
Then US 58 via Grayson Highlands to Mouth of Wilson.

In North Carolina there are many designated bike routes on back roads -

(Unfortunately, none head down from NW NC to Charlotte.)
Bike Route 4 - The North Line Trace - Which you could take all the way to the coast -
Cutting down thru Edenton to Swan Quarter and then Ocracoke.
