    If you are heavy, 81 to Syracuse then Tollway west would be more flatter near water than trying to head out dead south against the series of ridges.

    Plattsburgh to Malone NY. Then Malone to Buffalo is a good way. I’ve done the Malone to Buffalo route. Us11-I81-I90

    That’s the way I have always done it.
    RT 11 can be interesting in the winter time but we are far enough toward spring that it shouldn’t be an issue.
     
    77fib77 and nikmirbre Thank this.

    I wasn't sure what it was either. Till I found their tourist video highlighting what NY is like.
