Places besides NYC metro that I hate going thru or to

Denver.....the absolute worst for parking...forget about getting a spot at a truck stop after 3 pm. Or maybe even getting out of your spot at 5 am without banging on the door of the jackass that made his own spot blocking you in.

Philly area....very bad for parking and traffic. I wouldn't even want to be rolling near the place at 4 pm with less than 2 hours left on my clock.

Nashville....the worst traffic by far for a medium sized city. I've almost never made it through Nashville without some big slowdown, even at 1 am. Plus I just hate looking the place while I'm stuck there going 3 mph. That god awful Titans stadium . How ugly is that thing.

Cincinnati...maybe I was wrong to say Nashville by far. But at least here the awfulness seems confined to one route. If you're crossing the river at 75-71 here you want to do it between 10pm and 5 am.

Hartford always seems to take forever to get through. I like Pittsburgh but not driving a truck there.

My fist time in NYC I was driving. We were close to the destination. The GPS started on the final 5 miles of rout. Then the GPS just quit working. It was being updated. There was like 900 miles of highway that it would have been fine. All would have been well. But no. It stops in the busy new York streets. After trying to get it back working for a bit and failing we found our way back to a interstate and hit up the first service area we found. I can't imagine how they did it all with maps alone.

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

Who ever laid out 65/40/24 in Nashville should be beaten with a rubber hose for 30 seconds daily.

Briley parkway (155) is a decent way around that hot mess.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

When you get to Flint, don't drink the water.
