What a great forum!
I'll be leaving in a day or so (I had short notice) and want to know the best route to take to go cross country via the southern route to Hartford, CT. I want to avoid snow as much as possible, as I have a lowered car. I also prefer warm weather. ;)
I also want to make sure it is the quickest and most direct southern route, as I have to get there asap. Avoiding construction would also help.
And if you have any suggestions regarding hotels along the way, that would be great. Budget is around $50/night or less. I'll be driving at least 10 hrs per day, maybe more.
I've driven cross country 3 times, and it has taken about 52 hours.
