We're leaving tomorrow morning. We're almost all packed, and I'm dealing with some conflicting advice from google maps and my magellan GPS as to the route we should take from Toronto to Washington DC (our first day's travel).
Google maps suggests crossing the border at Lewiston, NY, taking SR 20 and 63 and hooking up with IS 390/US 15 south, which becomes I86/US15, and then going further south on US 15/Susquahanna trail. Then 15 becomes IS 83, the Veterans of Foreign Wars memorial parkway, then the 695 around Baltimore, etc etc.
15 years ago, when I used to drive to Virginia Beach, I remember the Triptik thing had me going on Interstates to Erie, PA, then I79 to the Pennsylvania Turnpike, then south at Breezewood onto I70. But maybe, in the intervening years, US 15 has improved enough to make it a better, faster route.
Google maps says it would be 9 hours 8 minutes of driving the first way, and 10 hours 18 minutes the second way.
Any suggestions? How good is US 15 in mid-Pennsylvania?
Option 1: (suggested time 9 hours 8 minutes)
Option 2: (suggested time 10 hours 17 minutes)
