Salut,

Just came back from down that way. We use I-87 > I-84 ( one big hill heading out of Port Jervis) > I -81 ( one big hill between Wilkes-Barre and Nanticoke and one-lane roadwork for eight miles before hitting the I-78 jct.). > I-66 > 17 > I-95/295. Only one toll to pay, NY State Thruway. Used to go down the 17 from Winchester, but tried the I-66 instead, not bad at all.

Have a good trip.

The 17 south of 66 is a good road. You can bypass Warrenton. Whatever, stay away from D.C., altho I did it on a Sunday and it was not too bad.

From Jonquière, do you take the 20 > 30 > 15, or the 40> 401 >81?

There is no problem with 17 between Winchester and I-66, except a rough railroad crossing. Save some miles and jump on 17 at Winchester.
The WalMart in Warrenton is a good spot to overnight. Stayed there 2 weeks ago.

I've done these routes many times coming from Pennsylvania.

I recommend exiting I-81 at Winchester and taking 17 to Fredericksburg and then I-95. No hills and much less chance of bad weather.

I traveling from Maine to FL, stopping in Spartanburg, SC for Christmas. Have mixed feelings about I-78 in PA. It sounds like it's a rough and heavily travel (by trucks) piece of highway. Am leaning on staying on I-84 to Scranton where I can pick up I-81 then south to I-77.

I-81 has lots of truck traffic but the scenery is great. I-77 is good road. Nice campground t Ft. Chiswell to the east of I-81 just south of I-77. It's behind the truck stop a half mile or so.

Also Ebenezer State Park in Rock Hill SC is nice. They take Golden Eagle Pass and are only a couple of miles off I-77.

To get to I81 I prefer I84 because I78 is so bumpy. The only time I would use I78 is if the weather might be bad. I81 through the PA mountains is good for fog and snow.
