Always avoid Atl at all costs but should you need to, go straight thru. No matter how bad it is, it's always better than going around the bi-pass. From the Gateway city (St Louis ) for years we've been going to Fl via 64 thru Ala and the 19 south to Mid Fl or South Fl And towing what be do it's much better then Tenn and Mt Eagle and I hate driving in Chatanooga. It's got to be the roughest road area in the world. Even worse the 30 in Ark used to be between Memphis and Little Rock or 12 in La going to Texas was. Wow what 3 nightmares.
