Yo do you guys have any tips for a trip fron NJ to CO
via I-76, I-80
Before leaving take a second mortgage on the house so you can afford the gas. Just kidding...
Make sure you have the Rest Area.csv and perhaps the Red Light Cameras loaded before the trip.
make sure that the toll avoidance is off.
Take I-76>I-70 instead
I-80 is a caravan of trucks, end to end like a train.
I-70 West of Denver will take you over the continental divide through the highest automobile tunnel in the world. East of Glenwood Springs, I-70 is one of the engineering marvels that was accomplished with the cooperation and teamwork of highway engineers, geologists and environmentalists. It is a beautiful drive.
Another beautiful way to cross the divide in Colorado is over Monarch pass on US 50. You might have guessed that Colorado is my favorite place to drive and I find myself there at least once each year.
The route you need to travel has been getting creamed by snow and rain over the last several weeks. Give Spring a chance if you can.
You got that right. I live in Colorado and it is a great state to just drive around in. I haven't offered the OP any suggestions as I'm relatively unfamiliar with points east. If he has any specific questions about travel in state, I'll chime back in.
Most east-west freeways (I-80, I-70) are dominated by truck traffic. I-80 is especially heavy with semi's, but I haven't had any problems on the few occasions when I've driven it in Nebraska and Wyoming.

This is startlingly true!! Day & night! I-80 IS a caravan of trucks, end to end like a train, and not only that, but the truckers there are inordinately inconsiderate & ruthless!
I've spent considerable time on I-80, driving day & night, in and around Wyoming!
Wish ya the best-
Iam taking 80 because there are rest areas were you can stop and plug your RV into it
Tht is actually when im going 2008 USAFA Graduation Colorado Springs
Im taking 80W>76W>25S 80 straight down into Colorado Springs
... during rush hour you should be ok. I-25 through the Platte Valley in rush hour can become a parking lot. If you are passing through Denver during that time, I'd advise taking the E470 toll road (Exit 18 from I-76). It will cost you about $6 in tolls, but it will bypass most of the traffic and still cruise at 70 mph. You still might get some traffic when you join I-25 south of the city, but you will miss the worst of it.
