Tristan (my 3 year old son), Cheyenne (my 5 year old niece), Savannah (my 10 year old niece) and I will set off from my house to my Mom's. Sometime next weekend. I don't like giving 100% specifics on the interwebs. LMAO!
Mapquest gives me three options. The funny thing is it use to only give 2 but I always took the third and Tom Tom kept me from getting lost on the way down. But I never paid enough attention so I couldn't find my way home. I will show you the options and my pros and cons of each because I really can't decide which to take. I always travel late at night, leaving between 2 am and 4 am. Making the 7 ish hour drive, for two reasons the kids sleep and less people are on the roads.
Route #1: Est. Fuel Cost- $42.55
Cons: Why go north west to go south east? I just can't get around that. Plus it puts me on the Capital Beltway and I really hate that!
Route #2: Est. Fuel Cost- $37.75
Pros: This is the route I always take and love. I just kind of winged it though.
Cons: It is lots of woods and small two lane roads at times. So the speed limit drops and you have to be vigilant looking for deer.
Route #3: Est. Fuel Cost- $46.53
Pros: I am not sure of any.
Cons: I have never take this route. It is the longest.
