    Anyway, the fastest route is I-90 to Chicago and onto I-76 and on into Washington.
    I hate to disagree with Mark, but that route will catch you up in Chicago traffic and cost you a ton in tolls. This route is only about an hour longer and has zero tolls:

    I-29 to I-880 to I-80 to Davenport IA
    I-74 to Indy, take the I-465 south bypass
    I-70 to Columbus, take the I-270 south bypass
    I-70 to Wheeling, take the I-470 bypass
    I-70 to Washington PA
    I-79 to Morgantown WV
    I-68 to Hancock MD
    I-70 to Frederick
    I-270 into the DC area

    If at all possible, take at least part of a 3rd day.

    This sounds like a plan. We forgot about the tolls. And driving through/around Chicago IS a cluster- you know what.
    THANKS everyone!
    Any more input? thank you!!!

    This "shun-pike" route through Morgantown and Hancock not only avoids the obnoxious tolls and traffic of the PA Turnpike, it's also really pretty! At this time of the year, fall leaf peeping may not be in its prime, but I'd guess it would still be pretty!
