I'd go through Detroit, the mountains are much smaller down 75 and in general there's more places to stop along the way...

you may also want to double check the weather, it seems that it may be a little ugly starting tomorrow....

I agree with td. Take 75 as it's much flatter terrain. Tennessee is the only hilly area (especially around Knoxville) and then it flattens out again near Georgia. Taking 77 will put you in mountainous terrain for the first half of your trip and you won't want that with the chance of snow. Although 75 is a little boring (especially the first 10 hours) it's the safer way to travel in winter. Have a great time.

Thank you, all!

we will take 75, especially taking off at 1pm, west virginia mountains will be at night, don't want to take the risk.
