I am traveling from Texas to Maine this summer. I plan on crossing New York on 90 from Buffalo to see my parents in upstate New York and then traveling on to Southern Maine. On my return trip I want to take 86 West instead of 90. Does anyone have any experience with this route? I try to avoid mountanous areas as I tow with a gas model and it takes its toll on my travel speed. I would like to hear any advice from anyone experienced on this route.....thanks!!
