The last time I was on I20, 15 years ago, it was a wagon trail through Louisiana and Mississippi. Just wanting to know if it still is and any reports on I30 and I40 west of Nashville would be appreciated.
Just did a trip with my brother to Texas and we went down through Nashville and Memphis - Texarkana it was a breeze but coming Back I went through Atlanta.
While it was doable it was painful - just too much traffic, in Atlanta.
Also I-10 in Louisiana is not one I favor in any vehicle.
In an Auto they are all doable just depends on what you would enjoy - might just check the State DOT's for Construction and plan around that.
I enjoyed the more northerly route over Atlanta, and the drive through the Smokies is almost always Beautiful.
Best of Luck,
