    Default more than a route

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    If you're sticking to interstate highways, there's not much more to be said about safety - all of them are built to standards that make them among the safest highways in the world. You will have to watch for weather, and that could play a big roll in the best choice of route - but there will be no way of knowing where you might see a storm until just before you leave.

    With no weather issues, the way I'd go is I-10/I-12 to Slidell LA, I-59/I-75 to Knoxville, I-81 to Scranton, and then I-84 into Massachusetts.

    That's a drive that's about 1900 miles, and with safety in mind you really need to plan for 3 overnight stops (3.5 days total). Suggested areas would be Meridian MS, Kingsport/Johnson City TN, and Scranton PA.

  3. Default Thanks for the info!!
