Jim Bob, what you have outlined is my snowbird route from Columbus Ohio to Florida. Tomorrow , April 6, I will begin the northward flight from Daytona Beach. I-10, exit 130 ( I think ) is Route 231 north. On the south side of Dothan, there is a convenient Pilot fuel stop. On the north side of Dothan we stop at a KOA near Fort Rucker for the night. I-65 is a good pick, as there are no mountains, and less traffic than the eastern routes. The only catch is Nashville. Traffic there is usually heavy, and temporary signage for construction confused me on the way down. But all in all, it's much better than hot-lanta.
Let me know if you would like any more details on this route.
