Exclamation Road Trip and maybe GTG's along the way

So, in June, I have to go to school in Fort Dix, NJ. I have the option of flying or driving. Guess what I'm doing.

So, my trip will probably take me down 20 until I hit GA, then 95 or 85 north. I figure it'll be a 2 day trip, 2.5 at the most. I did a TX-Ft. Lee, VA in my stRanger back in '06 by going down 20 to 85.

Anybody wanna do a quick howdy/handshake while I drive through?

JS... maybe I'll swing by your place.

Then, on my way home, I plan on stopping in MO to visit relative. SEMO to be exact.

Nobody's ever "close" enough. Tulsa is "on the way" from SEMO to Austin.

I might take I 10 over to 65, then catch 85 up... so many decisions.

That'd be near HWY 412 and I-244.

He could hit I-244 and take it to I-44, go west until you get to I-35 then take it from OKC to DFW, then IDK cause that part of Texas has so many highway exit's/entrance's. I may be wrong, been awhile since I've been down Texas way.

44 would take you through Springfield and I'm about 45-60 min south of Springfield on HWY 60\HWY 5. Sounds like a fun trip!

What road are you planning to take thru VA? I-81....I-95.....I-64? When I went to Birmingham, I went 81 south to 40 west. Then 75 south to 24 west then to 59 south into AL

If your coming up 81 Id be right there. I work about a mile or 2 off the interstate. 95 and 64 are out of the question

Lowriders are for guys who can't get it up!

Hmmm... I got time to plan.

I-10 to Mobile, AL
I-65 to Montgomery, AL
I-85 to Atlanta, GA
Find JSoko
Get to 81 via 75/40 or 77 out of Charlotte, NC.
I-81 to Harrisburg, PA
I-76 to Philidelphia and 276 AROUND philly... and arrive at Fort Dix.

Well, forget I-76. Hey webby, any roads up in your neighborhood that AREN'T a toll road?!?

I can get to Atlanta in a day, but it'll be a stretch.

Booba, I'd catch 60 from Poplar Bluff, and head west.

Then, I'd sneak into OK via 44.

Tell me how them tolls work up in y'alls neighborhoods. I got a toll tag for TX, so I don't have to worry about it.

A normal trip from MO to TX (Cape Girardeau to DFW via Little Rock, AR) would take a day.
