    Ouray, CO to Silverton. Beautiful drive in a car but not so enjoyable in a semi.

    That's 'The Million Dollar Highway'. I think it's because that's what it will cost you if you run it too fast.:)

    I-75 north of Toledo. I don't know if they've fixed it but a couple of years ago driving that road felt like riding a mechanical bull.

    I-78 in jersey. Always packed to the brim. I'll run 80 to nj 31 instead and grab a few dirty water dogs from Johnny's hotdogs if it's not packed

    I hear you. But I grew up shortly off that interstate and now live half the country away. On the infrequent occasions I get to travel that road, it’s a trip down memory lane. Takes the bite off it.

    The Beltway around DC is a ball-breaker for me. I always try to go through DC after 11pm. During the day it's like a death race.

    I-5 from Redding to Eugene. Just takes forever especially if you're heavy. Same with I-80 between Sacramento and Reno and I-70 west of Denver.
