My fiance and I are planning a cross-country trip this winter. We have it pretty well figured out to Oklahoma City but are stumped after that. Google maps and a friend that just did the trip both suggest going up through St. Louis and Indianapolis through Pennsylvania. We also looked at staying more southern and going through Nashville, Knoxville and up that way. I really want to avoid the most snowy mountain driving possible! Which would be the best route? My fiance seems to think the more southern route will be better driving but I'm nervous about the Smoky Mountains. Any advice would be so appreciated!
