The biggest concern I guess would be visibility, driving down at night means I have no traffic or border times, but at the same time, I expect the deer to be a lot more active with the lack of cars on the road to scare em off. If it's daytime, at least I'll have some time to react in advance.
I think I'm gonna try to convince Dad to leave early morning so that while outside Kingston it's still dark, but about to get light for when we cross over to 81 at the border. I sincerely doubt that the Kingston border will be busy at 5am on a Sat morning and as for traffic, I was looking at past trends for Saturday mornings over the google traffic and looks to be smooth sailing for the interstates.
If there's anyone who regularly drives 81 on weekend mornings could give me a heads up on traffic, it'd be greatly appreciated Edit: As a side note, I've heard venison is delicious, but I don't think I want to use my car to make the kill lol. Weeze? Little help? heh
