Looks like a good two week trip, but I have a feeling I'd have a hard time staying on the route.
A plan is just a list of things that doesn't happen.

I recall seeing something similar on the Iron Butt site or in its magazine.  I wonder how the routes compare.

Yea, I whipped one up several years ago with Streets and Trips. I think I still have the save file.

It's a shame it includes so much road time in Illinois...but I guess a lack of twisties is not really an issue for this type of trip...

That's kinda cool in a bragging rights kind of way. I might have to do that when I retire in ten years.
