I24 in Monteagle has steep grades, but just drive slow, flashers on. I 75 in, or, around Atlanta is a pain. Allow an hour or more to get thru. IF you want to avoid the above, then I 65 out of Nashville to route 231[montgomery], to I 10 is a good ride. Some cross traffic on 231, but an easy drive. Not many more miles then I 75, and a lot less stress.

St Louis to Mt. Vernon, Marion, Nashville, Chattanoga, Atlanta to I-10 and across to Jax. Only mountain is the Mount Eagle grade between Nashville and Chattanoga. About 3-4 miles with 5-6% grades. Has never been a problem for me.

Everyone is afraid of Atlanta. Not a problem except before 9:00am and after 4:00pm. You can take I-285 around the west side but it adds about 15 miles and can be as congested as going downtown. Stay in the middle lanes to keep from being forced off onto exits (I-20, I-85, Williams St etc.).

Have a great trip.

I don't think it's so much a "fear" of Atlanta, xydial, as opposed to total frustration.

But that's just me.

I-65 out of Nashville all the way to Montgomery, then 231 through southeast Alabama down to I-10 and east. Watch your speed on 231... There are a LOT of Barney Fyffes along that route, particularly in Dothan, which tend to be a bit overzealous with the ticket pad.

Say hello to the Bumper Chicken for me, wouldja?

I live in S. Fl and make the drive to and from Birmingham, Al twice a year. Since I am south on the east coast, I drive diagonal across Fl. and take I10 to 231 up thru Dothan onto I65 into Birmingham. There are 2 or 3 nice campgrounds to stop at if you need a spot for a night. 231 has traffic, but is not a bad ride compared to the madness around Atlanta.
Just my opinion.
Travel is not fun if you don't enjoy the drive.
