    I did drive 81 a few times when I transited between Raleigh NC, central PA, Wheeling WV, Akron OH, and Chattanooga TN. Hard to explain those routes, but most of the driving was at night. My impression of the 81 legs in Western VA were rolling hills, unlike the more mountainous 77 going up into WV. But I might be remembering just some daylight part of the trips.

    I was too obtuse in my comment. I was referring to the high traffic on 81, especially trucks, and then tendency for traffic jams to form.:(

    Dale, you are correct. I77 S from Charleston is very mountainous and curvy. People tend to drive much faster than the speed limit, and accidents are not uncommon.
