Much better than I-95.

Show me an interstate that ISN'T full of trucks and beat up. Going around Birmingham I thought I was going to lose a tire and wheel. I-95 I felt like Evel Kinevil being launched off every joint on every bridge. I-94 in MI you could walk across the trucks all the way to Chicago. I-40 is like Daytona speedway. That is why I try to stay off interstates and use secondary roads. Much nicer, much safer although somewhat slower. Lots more to see.

I hold the state accountable for the condition of the roads. I 81 is a major thoroughfare for the Virginia "Inland Port" and given the amount of tax dollars paid by drivers and transportation companies the state should invest that money back into the road system. I've been thinking of installing a bull rope in the seats to help with the ride.

Been traveling I30, I40 & I81 from Dallas to Maryland at least 2 times a year for 35 years, last 10 with either a TT or 5th wheeler. If you think I81 is bad (and I'm not saying it isn't), drive I30 thru Arkansas, you can get seasick on that one.

Sorry, I live just off 81 in Winchester, just north of Front royal and I call BS on this description. If we go just about anywhere we pretty much have to drive on it so we know every mile of it well. I'll agree it's a heavily travelled road and it could certainly benefit from an additional lane, but I can think of a LOT worse roads than 81.

Sorry if I offended your delicate sensibility, however, there was no embellishment in my description. Just my honest assessment of a ridiculously poorly maintained highway.

No delicate sensibilities here, I just know overstatements when I see them when I live it every day. Like the Baltimore Beltway up your way is a wonderful road or something.

Gentlemen,

Please..... There's enough potholes to share without being greedy.... And, if by chance you happen to run out, come to Michigan, we've got more than we need......

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming......

Naa, I bought my TT in Muskegon. I ran I-96 there and the way home. You win, hands down!
