GPS keeps trying to take me to route 15. Grrrrrr

15 is about your only feasible option from up there. Just one slight variation. When you get to Williamsport , stay on 180 East instead of continuing on 15. Turns into 147 at route 80. Continue on 147 to Northumberland. Your GPS should re-route you from there and take you back to 15. Only snag is 2 miles of red lights through Shamokin Dam.

Ah thanks. Looking at the atlas 15 looks OK to a point...and you are gonna laugh..I was gonna go 15 to 180 to 80 to 81...not caring it is taking me out of my way. But 15 is better looking than the other PA 156, and other curvy yucky looking routes lol

Yes Robby...my arms are crossed and I'm pouting. Stomping my foot cause you are being mean and I'm a girl lol

Rainy PA-15 is a well travelled truck route. I drive it frequently...you should be fine.

When I was a teenager in IL I started behind the wheel day after a snow storm. So now that I'm on my way to trucking and it's winter I hope I get to learn how to drive in winter weather while I'm with a trainer who can give me some help adjusting to driving a truck in winter. A car is one thing, but after watching plenty of winter pile up videos I don't want to get into trucking and be one of those truckers in a hundred car pileup. So I see that itsucks to drive in but am looking forward to learning how to do it right in a few weeks.

I drove through such terrible lake effect snow last night through Ohio and Indiana that i seriously thought i was on the planet hoth. And that Luke Skywalker was going to come riding along side me at any time.

I'm pretty sure it's following me at this point. Last Friday got to play in the nor'easter in CT/ME. Sat had the follow on in PA near whiteout conditions in the hills. This week has been lovely sub zero temps in MN. Then "yea' trip to Memphis... snow in IA/MO... This morning wake up to... you guessed it more bloody snow.. and in Memphis!

Well it followed me from UT.

Yesterday I drove through lake effect in buffalo. After that I wasn't too happy about having to drive on non interstates to get through PA.

As the others said..in daytime that route wasn't vad . not sure I would want to run some parts at night in the snow. Down here doesn't seem hit compared to buffalo.

Hmmmm got a jacuzzi suite for tonight though...yeah me.

Yeah I have been quiet. But I've been busy! Loving it with the new company.

Well, it snowed in Little Rock last night... and the roads were TERRIBLE heading home today.

And apparently NO ONE in AR can drive in the snow. Everyone was doing 35 mph or less, even when the lanes were clear and dry...

Now Dexter, my poor truck, is covered in about two inches of nasty brown ice... and my trailer brakes are frozen up. But I'm not leaving till Sunday so I'll save the crawling around in the snow for then...
