    I'm trying to figure if there's a way to go up route 422 and end up in Kutztown.

    I think there's a road called Hurrfs Church Road that cuts off of Route 100 but I don't know if that's a truck route or if there's any other route to take you that way.

    If you stay on Route 100 it really winds you around. If there's some way to make a straighter shot to Kutztown that would be great. I don't know if there's a truck friendly route that will do that.

    I could probably from where I live take 309 up and 78 out, but if I go to South New Jersey I like to go back down 422 to Route 76 because the other alternatives are Route 309 and there's a lot of lights or County Line Road and its all City traffic or 313/413 which again it's all City traffic.

    F the turnpike.

    The other question is if I take Route 183 North through strausstown, does anyone know if I can go straight on that and take Route 54 up to 80?

    It looks like it goes 183 to 901 to Route 54 up to Route 80.

    I'm between Lansdale and King of Prussia.

    422 is close to me but I can work my way out to 309 to head up to Kutztown.

    It's reasonable from here to go that way. From Hatfield up to 78 there is some town you go through but it's not a terrible ride. But 422 is close to me and it's all nice Highway.

    But the way back to South Jersey is the real thing because like I said that ride down 309 or County Line Road or 313/413 is all town.

    But if there was a way that I could cut more of a straight line back to 422 to route 76 that would be the way I would prefer to go, even if it's more miles.

    That's the route!

    I don't know how I missed that but sometimes I just get nervous that certain routes or certain roads are not good truck routes.

    I'll definitely take that on the next trip.

    Thank you.

    The next thing is Route 183 North going through strausstown PA.

    Can I take that straight up to 901 to Route 54 up to Route 80?
