Going on a southbound one-way drive from South Michigan to Central Florida, taking I-75 the whole way. There will be four of us in the car all of legal driving age. What are we in for, bros? Any advice for the journey? (Flying up from Florida and driving a rental truck down)

    I mean, fricking driving?
    Are you stopping? Do you want recommendations on where to go? Or are you just driving down a truck for some reason?
    With four people you can do the drive in a single day if you wanted to. Or you could spend two weeks doing it with frequent stops.

    An ice storm?
    It's a major interstate. Not sure what you think you're going to see besides random small towns that abut a truck stop.
    Avoid going through Atlanta its a shithole and people can't drive for shit. Take the beltway or whatever they call it around it. Same with Cincinnati. If you're driving a big vehicle just be aware of your length when making turns and lane changes. Avoid smaller gas stations as there may not be room to turn around, go to truck stops and get food there too.

    It's an interstate... I doubt you'll stumble along any surprises. There are two Buc-ee's in Georgia, one about an hour north of Atlanta in Calhoun and one south of Macon, if you ever wanted to stop at one.

    Check the traffic well before you get to Atlanta and keep an eye on it. Just prepare to be delayed if you approach during rush hour—you're not making it through quickly. If you use I-285, take the West Bypass (marked as Birmingham/Tampa), it's the shortest way around and avoids the most congested section of the Perimeter. If you stay on 75 and go straight through (quicker under most conditions), you can use the HOV lane once you're inside I-285. (The express lanes on the north and south sides of Atlanta, outside of I-285, are tolled and well marked as such.)

    Take a break to get gas/food/bathroom break well before Atlanta... some exits are fine, most are a pain in the ass to use, and some will take you into crummy parts of town. Best to just be ready before you get there and go straight through and don't stop until it's well behind you.

      Downtown Chattanooga is a several miles off of I-75, up I-24 and then US 27, with a rental truck driving downtown and finding a secure place to park it will be a hassle.

      ...you should take back roads honestly. you are not going to see shit man

      This. Wtf kind of stupid idea is this OP?

      I wouldn't do this drive "for fun" unless you paid me a shit ton of money.

      They're driving what sounds like a U-Haul. I think they just want to get from start to finish in a timely manner. Driving backroads the whole way would be fun as a road trip but if they're moving it would just be annoying and much slower.
