Heading North

Planning on driving from FL to MI and we are just getting our feet wet with MH and toad.
Is it easier to drive through Chattanooga to Nashville and then up OR through Chattanooga to Knoxville and then up?
I know the latter is a little longer but might be an easier drive.
Thanks for any suggestions?

I prefer to avoid Atlanta, and that mountain known as Jellico north of Knoxville. From Florida we go out I-10 on the panhandle to 231, and up to Dothan, and Montgomery, to I-65; North through Nashville to Louisville , then I-71 to Cincinnati. It's a longer but less crowded and less hilly route.

drove that yesterday from Birmingham to near jax. I travel there all the time and really, that is my favorite. ATl is quicker but the pressure of it wears me out. And, per Mapquest, ATL is only 20 minutes quicker driving time. I do think it may be a little more quicker than that but to me, it is not worth it.

When you get south of montgomery, take Taylor road to I85 instead of going on into montgomery on 231. If you use gps, you will end up at the same place.

Hi FapInJax,
Your profile says you are in Jacksonville. If this is true, Consider:
!. I 95 North to I 26 In SC
2. I 26 West To I 40 In NC (Ashville)
3. I 40 West to Knoxville
4. I 75 North

There is a FJ at I95 exit 77 in SC. The lowest price for fuel will be in SC. There are other Pilot stations on I 26 in SC. Going over the Smoky Mountains on I 40 is no problem. The road is no more than 2800' above sea level. For me, it is more like going through the mountains, not over them. I drive this route several times a year. I prefer it over going through Atlanta. It is a relaxing route to drive.
