On our way to Florida

I75 - wow the trucks!!! Makes me think railroads need to make a comeback. Traffic in north Georgia was bumper to bumper moving 65mph. 50% were trucks.

Only did 175 miles from Knoxville to just north of Atlanta as there was an accident that backed up traffic.

We should be in Florida later today...yippee.

Trucks are the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the word Atlanta.

We went north through there several years ago on I75 and it was worse than California.

I just came straight through Atlanta today at 11:00 a.m. Not really too bad, just make sure you stay in the proper lane. Through travel by Semi trucks is not allowed. (local deliveries only)

I can think of two worse cities: Dallas Texas, and Orlando Florida. (Don't flame me, I love both sites but hate the traffic. )

Are you kidding me? The traffic Sunday afternoon south of Atlanta was bumper 2 bumper with two traffic jams for over a hour each on I-75. Everyone was heading back south after the Thanksgiving holiday week. Glad we made it to Florida in one piece.

No, not kidding. Traveling ANYWHERE during the Thanksgiving holiday period is a HUGE PIA. Best to avoid doing so if at all possible.

If the trucks are numerous, the economy must be improving. PFJ truck pumps remain available. If I must wait for fuel the economy would be really rolling along (no pun intended).

OP was from Columbus, OHio; and we're a little ways south of there. I prefer the less stressful route of I-65 south, and then 231 in Alabama to get to Florida.
It is somewhat out of the way, but The traffic is much lighter, there are no mountains ( i.e. Jellico,Tn.) and no Atlanta. Did I mention that the traffic was lighter? Just slide over from Cincinnati to Louisville, and you are on your way.
Being retired, I prefer to take an extra day south, and enjoy the drive.
Bob
