Wow, that is a great goal. I drive through western PA a couple times in the summer & there are certainly a couple of doozy's. The worst so far is is I-40 East right past Uniontown. I have to throw my Corolla into 3rd gear with the pedal buried to maintain 45 MPH.

Already learning from reading here that is is better to lose a bit of MPH going up hills, but that is one climb that is tough to maintain speed.
