So, I'm moving to Maryland, I'm taking off this thursday (July 21, 2005) and I'm having trouble planning my route from Los Angeles. I've asked people, well, I really didn't ask, they just volunteered their opinions to me and supposedly there are two routes, one kind of northern route that has long drive in mountain roads (no fun) and a middle route that is mostly flat country which sounds better to me. I'm not trying to do anything fancy, mostly I'm going drive as much as I can, sleep in motels along my driving route and keep chugging along.
Does anyone have any experience with this, any advice, any specific simple routes that will save me some time? Is mapquest the fastest route? It seems to have many exits and many many different freeways in which I can possibly make a wrong turn.
Tentatively I was thinking, 15N to 70...but after that I'm lost. I'm going to AAA to get some maps today to better plan my route, but advice would be greatly appreciated.
