Avoiding big cities is a good choice. I have a Streets and Trips I am attempting to publish here for you. I hope this works. If not, PM me and I will send via email.

This is a beautiful drive in many areas. The mountains are manageable but often steep grades as you already know. Have a great trip.

What bandmbrown said. I-78/I-287 doesn't take you thru big cities, but NJ traffic can be a major PIA (I know, I grew up there and traveled those highways daily for work).

Hwy traffic in Northern NJ can be a hassle, but only during rush hours. If you plan your trip accordingly you'll have no problems.

We have done I-86 to I-88 in NY to avoid the NY. Toll Road. Nice road...No major cities...rolling hills at most. Then onto I-87 (by way of route 50 NW. of Albany) Then cross into NY / VT over the Crown Point bridge (VT. Route 4). Nice visitor center there. The only traffic would be around Saratoga Springs. Since your end destination is Middlebury / Lake Dunmore are you planning a stay at Kamperville?

We plan to leave 87 at Albany/Troy taking hwy 7 up thru Vermont heading north and finding a campground (Which I believe we've found) to be close to Waitsfield where our son and his Vermont fiancee are to be wedded.

CONGRATULATIONS! I hope this will not be soon though. The roads are a mess up north and the weather is not improving soon. The major highways open up fairly fast after bad weather, as you know from being in WV, but the local roads, thought well treated, can still be trouble for RVers. I wish you safe and pleasant travels whenever this blessed event transpires.

Rick
