Hey Dodge Guy, how did you go through Atlanta?

I KNOW for sure that I'll be making the trip to FW at some point. Make sure you post plenty of pics when you return. Safe travels!

I went around the east side and stopped at Stone Mountain for the afternoon/night. Took I75 to whatever the bypass is around Atlanta. I'm not near a map right now, so i can't check.

Should have been 285 east to hwy 78 east to hit stone mtn. Then back to 285 south to 675 south with merges with 75 south.

I make that drive a few times a week.

I live 25 miles n of city center Atlanta. After 10am you can use any route you choose through Atlanta and generally be just fine. Returning from FL, do the reverse plan. Stay away from 4 to 7pm and no issues. ( barring accidents ). Pick a lane like 2nd from right and just cruise along. Recently returned from FW and we are booked there for Christmas week. Advice: practice: practice backing. Spots are tight to get into and unforgiving on errors. ( lots of trees and FIXED trash receptacles). One of the few places I move my slider hitch back. We have a 2015 Silverback 33rl and formerly had a 2011 Keystone Sydney Outback 36 ft 'er 5 er! Retired. Been x country with the Keystone. Disney is the tightest place we have experienced . Nothing practice and a good spotter cannot easily cure .
Last trip there, guy backed his 31 ft TT in and crushed his tailgate and bumper in a massive V. Just say 'n!

No kidding about it being tight. Lots of landscaping to work around, not quite enough angle on the sites and normal width roads means two spotters are paramount.

I've found if you reserve the premium sites @ FW, they are wider slots...thus less obstructions to maneuver around but the roads are all narrow inside the loops

I went from Indy to Jacksonville, Fl in early May this year. I used I65 without problems. There is construction in the Lousiville area, but it wasn't anything that stood out for me. We went through Lousivlle about 9 am on a Wed.

Unless your pulling more than you should be there is nothing in the way of grades to worry about on either route.

I'm not concerned about Monteagle. Going up let the computer and horsepower make decisions. Going down I'll drop a gear or two and enjoy the view. My true challenge will be Atlanta, but it is what it is. I'll make it.

We have a premium site, but I'm used to Lake Rudolph in Santa Claus, so tight backing can be handled.

My other true challenge will be sitting in a car for so long.

We went through Atlanta last month on a Friday afternoon about 1:00PM and it was smooth sailing on I-75 all the way through town. I get in the 2nd lane from the right a little north of town and only time I move is after the interstate merges. When it merges I move 1 lane to the left.
