Any thoughts on running I-77 north? Looking to work our way to Elkhart coming up I-81 from Piegon Forge, TN.

We're trying to avoid Cincinnati - it appears to be a mini Atlanta, no place I care to drive.

Why not 75 to 64 to 65 and then Rt. 31 North from Indy? You won't go near Cinci. I-77 is way out of the way.

If you time your drive to avoid the rush hours, you can drive through any city in the US with ease including LA, Chicago, NY, etc.

Agreed. 77 is WAY out of your way. No reason to go through Cinci. Take the bypass around. We do it all the time - very easy drive. It's all about the timing anyway.

I drive I-77 through southern WV often in a car. While it's nothing an RV cannot do, it is hilly and curvy and I can't imagine going that way to avoid Cincy (or even Atlanta-like traffic for that matter).

You are not going near Cincinnati. It is not a problem. I do it all the time. I77 N to I275 to I74 West. I'm about to do it again. Take I75. FYI, there is Flying J at I75 exit 171 in Kentucky.
