Thanks for the name and offer but I decided to pull it down myself.

Now I need to know the best, flattest route.

I was thinking 57 to 24 to 65 to 82 to 75 to FL TPK. Sound like a good plan?

I'm open to suggestions.

I-57 to I-24 to I-75 to Florida Turnpike. That's as close to flat as you can get.

I ususally take 65 to 24 in Nashville then 75 out of Chattanooga to Fl turnpike. Just watchout for Mount Eagle, it get kinda steep on the southside.

Mount Eagle is what I want to stay away from. What if I get on 55 and pick up 12 in New Orleans to 10 to 75? I know its longer but maybe more flat?

Mike
The boats just home sick. I'll have the same old Sonic this year.

Tonto has the easiest route. If you want the flatest, stay on 65 to Mobile, Alabama. Then 10 to 75. But, that's along way to go. The mountain outside of Chattanoga isn't that bad.
