I just came down I40 to I26 to Beaufort SC on my way back from Goshen, IN. I can tell you, from Knoxville down to SC it is almost all down hill. Which means from SC border to Knoxville would be almost all uphill for you. I didn't go to Goshen up 26-40 for that reason. I went up I77. I think after making both trips, up and back, if I went back up, I'd take I77 instead of 26 to 40. I think it would add to your time on the road considerably. Have you thought about I-16 to Atlanta and up I-75 to Knoxville?
