Google is quoting between 6-7 hours, depending on road selection. I can live with that, but not sure what roads are preferable considering traffic, truck restrictions, etc. Don't some of the parkways in/around NYC and NJ restrict trucks? Does that apply to this 14-footer? How to avoid?
95 the whole way? Tappan Zee Bridge? Drift west into PA to avoid Philadelphia metro area and other congestion?
We are interested in making the trip as fast as possible. Not at all interested in stopping for diversions along the way.
