I drove up from Texas to Vermont this week and took I-40 through Tennessee and then North onto I-81 up into New York I-87. It was a decent trip but I was wondering if I should go home through New York State and take I-90 west and then south west on I-71? I thought that I-81 was pretty beat up and wanted to know what the roads were like on I-90 and I-71.
I also thought regardless of the road conditions, that it would be safer to drive south and then drive west to stay clear of winter storms in the north.
Your opinions would be appreciated.
