I am making the reverse run in September. Going from Dahlonega, Georgia, up through Syracuse, over to Connecticut and return Tappan Zee Bridge, NY, NJ and south. You are going to have to either travel FAR out of your direct route OR fight the inevitable HELL, like I am.
Did this 20 years ago on motorcycles from Jacksonville, Florida to Nova Scotia and back down eastern corridor and here we are; ALIVE!!
I had a huge Honda Goldwing with a camping trailer that slept 3 and all our gear for 2 1/2 weeks. Wife rode her Suzuki 1400 cc set up like EASY RIDER!!
Just plan it and go!! Adapt as you go!!
Good luck !!
