Hello. I'm moving to Wilmington, I was wondering if there was anyway to get around going through the monutains. I'm coming from Illinois and I don't want to go too far but any reccomendations. Thank you.

When you keep on the interstate highways, it is not much different than normal driving on any other road. I-77 doesn't seem to have as much mountain travel miles as I-40.

I agree with NCN stick to interstates and you will be fine since they are designed to handle semi's

Take I 75 to I 40 for simplest route the grades of the Mountains are not that bad.
Or take I 75 to I 64 to I 77 to I 73 to US 52 to I 40
Or take I 75 to I 81 to I 77 to I 73 to US 53 to I 40
but you may cross more dense fog or bad weather going this route thru Ohio or shenandoah valley. Good luck on your trip that is long one but you will get to see various type of landscape of each region.
