    I have been many times, ICE and EV. Personally I enjoy the 95 down the east coast through the Appalachia’s mountains. And then cross around the 301 just last Jacksonville. be safe watch for others watch for trucks and keep an eye on the weather. Use ABRP and print is off as a back up. Input the worst case, higher whkm, weight and heavy snow.

    Presumably you'll drive over to the Detroit area, then drive straight down I-75 until you hit the Florida Turnpike.

    Consider switching back to all-season 18" with aero covers to maximize your range, unless you expect bad road conditions for the first day.

    BTW: If you don't already have a SunPass, stop at the first service station on the FL Turnpike and get one. Whole lot easier driving around South Florida with it, and the Turnpike exits in Miami and further south don't have a cash option.

    Edit: Just realized you said Sarasota, so you won't be using the Turnpike, just staying on I-75
