I've done this dozens of times. Never a problem but watch the weather if you're driving in the winter.

I'll be doing the reverse drive from Pittsburgh Sunday.

I think you better bring some money for tolls.

Tolls??

The only toll on this route is the WV turnpike which is very low. Probably the lowest per mile in the country. The full length toll for a motorhome is $2.50. Add a car in tow and it is $3.25. Even less with EZ Pass. Since I only go to Pittsburgh I'm not certain what the I-90 NY tolls are.

Toll Rates

I went across the state on I90 several years ago. It was around a $100.

Not going until June 2014 so no weather issues. Thanks

I like $3.25
I sure don't like $100

How do I confirm the toll fees?

I'm curious why you would take 77 to 19 then 79. Why not just get on 79N in Charleston, WV and save yourself a lot of winding roads and small towns?
If you are set on staying on 77N as far as possible, then I'd suggest taking 50E from Parkersburg to Clarksburg. The speed limit is 65, two lanes each way with sufficient fuel stops not to have to worry.

True, I-90, the NY Thruway is expensive but he's only going to the I-90 I-190 split, which is 68 miles.

Via 19 mileage is 68.7 miles.

Via Charleston is 114.0 miles.

US19 is all 4 lane and is not a winding road.

As I've state in a previous reply I driven this route many, many times.

Easy there, big fella!
You are right. I was thinking of 119, not 19.

Because that is what mapquest told me to do. This is also why we have started planning now and are thankful for your knowledge. We will want to stay on the biggest, flowing, non stopping roads we can so please advise us
