Hi motormama,
Unless you are willing to travel hundreds of extra miles, the mountains can not be avoided. The risk can be minimized. Consider:
1. I90 West to Cleveland
2. I71 South to Cincinnati
3. I75 South to Ft. Myers

It all depends on the weather.

If you need to stay near the coast to avoid bad weather, wind your way over to I95 and stay on it until I4 in Florida. Then cut over to I75 to Ft. Myers.

Unless the weather is bright and sunny, stay away from I79 and anything in West Virginia.

Agree - RT75 is the best way to go and stay away from RT77 thru WVA.

71 goes thru Columbus Ohio and 2 hrs later thru Cincinnati. Just stay away from the rush hours. Then you will pick up 75 thru KY and Tenn. You will need to pay attention going thru Knoxville as it mergers with west RT40. Stay on 75.

Atlanta - if you can plan to go thru at between 9:00pm and 5:00am great. If not just hope traffic is not stopped due to an accident.

After Atlanta it is clear sailing to Fort Myers.
