Hello everyone! Long story short, lots of stresses and want to make this as simple as possible. I love the I-75 book by Dave Hunter, and as I am driving alone, any 'help' is appreciated. Instead of driving that darn wavy cross country line every trip planner/GPS/etc keeps giving me, I want to design my OWN simpler way--primarily, get on turnpike in FL, merge onto I-75N. stay on I-75 the whole way into Michigan and then do more of a '90-degree angle' approach--transfer from the 'south to north' I-75 to 'the east to west' I-90 which leads straight to Washington, my final destination. (May have to do a connect and transfer off I-94 first, just scanning maps as no digital program will comply!)
I drove the wavy line about 6 years ago from FL to OR and as much as I love the romance of off road adventures, I don't have the money, time, or stress-management (dealing with a LOT) to go through all those 'getting lost on winding country roads/no gas stations for hundreds of miles/ no bathroom except for an outhouse for over 6 hours' adventures (ouch! I still remember the no restroom pain! Made me want to get some of those astronaut diapers, haha.) And anyway, I love the idea of the little Interstate oddities (my sentimental fave is the Ashburn, Ga peanut monument and crime/punishment museum) that are right off the main route, no out if the way adventures needed. As I said, i'm a gal traveling alone --not that I think women are more vulnerable or anything--but keeping it simple and direct and as clear as possible is the smartest thing for me now.
So, PLEASE, could anyone offer any help or advice on making this route work? I have my I-75 book to get north. I don't know if there's an I-90 book of comparable help but I also have my GPS, as hard-headed as it is. Any tips for this 2-interstate trip (possibly three, with I-94 and maybe a state road (ack) needed as a connector). Please help, as the digital world refuses to bow to what I lke to think of as 90-degree angle pioneering originality.
Thank you and um, Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
