I haven't had any trouble on I40 the dozens of times we've traveled it except one time when a delivery truck caught fire and blocked the west bound lane just west of Asheville. Lane was blocked for about an hour, but that was several years ago. We did run into traffic congestion 5 miles west of Asheville this last Labor Day coming home in TOWTA's old junker, took us 45 minutes to go 5 miles. Other than those 2 incidents, have no trouble.

I hear you Glenn, but I'd rather go through Asheville than Atlanta! I'm dreading that part of the trip.

We will be 734 miles (1174KM) via 402 to Sarnia/Port Huron, I69 to Indianapolis, I65 to Nashville then I have to rely on 'that woman' in the GPS and she does not always get it right. Where to stop over is the next question?

Seeing as we're also crossing over via Windsor, what route were you planning to take? Others have reminded me of the construction on i75 in Ohio and I'd like not to get stuck in it.

However, if i75 thru Ohio is not a problem this is how we'd go: i75 to i71 to i65.

Only place worse than Atlanta is Houston. Both are nightmares even not towing.

I know the feeling. ONSTAR has taken us some crazy places lately.

Well, Washington, DC is definitely in the top 5. Chgo only makes the top 10 unless you're coming from Green Bay or Milwaukee.
