77 to 70 to 79 to 68 to 81 to 84, we did basically the reverse of that when coming home from NYC to NE Ohio a few years ago and it was a very pleasant drive and I was able to fill up in WV avoiding the high gas taxes in PA, you'd probably need to add a fill-up in Maryland as well unless you've got a really big tank.

That looks like a lot of 2 lane driving through some hilly country. It's probably scenic, but we have some time constraints getting to CT. Did you leave out a long stretch on I-80 in your directions, or am I missing something?
I do appreciate all responses.

No, those are all 4 lane interstates. Basically go under Pittsburgh and across WV and Maryland and then up 81 on a diagonal to 84. It's 60 miles longer than the Google route but better roads and lower gas taxes.

OK, thanks for the clarification. I was looking at I-79 North out of Washington and the 2 lane 68 up to I-80. This makes much more sense. Google says it adds over 2 hours compared to I-80 or I-90, but it may be worth it.

Matt, thanks for responding. Google maps actually does take 81 to 84 and in. We have taken that in the past (several years ago and found it to be rough enough to make the I-90 tolls through NY worthwhile. But it's been a few years since we've taken I-90 as well, and I wondered if it has deteriorated since.


You mention you have done this trip before, so you likely are aware, but RVers shouldn't use Google Maps for routing in the Hudson Valley/NYC/LI area without paying close attention to the route. Google Maps can route you on a parkway, and RVs are not allowed on them in NY and CT.

Yes, I was aware, but a reminder is always good. Thanks.
