Question for the OP (lazyboy):

Are you still looking for input? Have you taken your trip yet or have you already gone?

If you've taken your trip already, can you share your route and your experience?

LazyBoy do I have the road route for you. As you wanted to avoid Highways like I-10, if you go back through the POST you will see I showed you Maps.Google.com.. Now what I did was place you on the route driven by Bicycles as this route avoids Highways. I have also placed you onto the most scenic roads. So LazyBoy her is your trail and part of the fun of driving is planning.

JUST COPY and PASTE: But the old way may be a bit much so just CLICK the LINKS: and ENJOY.[emoticon]

That would be a doozy of a bike ride! [emoticon]

I wonder how some of those local bypasses would work out. I know the "alternate routes" on I-40 through New Mexico get kind of sketchy. Between the construction sites and the occasional wrecks, the two lanes pinch down to one in a couple of spots between Albuquerque and Gallup and you have to get creative to get around them. A friend of mine took a detour recently and ended up on a dirt road for miles (not what he had planned). It turned out to be a good adventure.

Thanks dedmiston,

YES, If you look you will find that I kept coming back to this post thinking this a simple too simple. But then I said I'll do it for him Lazyboy as I was wondering myself about the roads in Florida after Michael Hurricane went through. So once you select a roadway with Maps. Google you can pick up the man and drop him on any part of the roadway, which I did and Highway-98 in Florida was a mess but looked passable. I do understand some folks not wanting to drive the highways, and that's fine. The bike trails are not as yet being driven by Google camera vehicles "lol" and I use it as a way around highways.

But I'm sure now that I have said NO Google cameras, someone will fix a backpack with a google camera and drive the bike trails HA HA. OH my, what fun for our 18-wheelers friends to ponder over. lol Oh, this is to much fun. Happy you like.

Hwy 98 is a mess not because of the storm but further west in the panhandle it is choked with traffic. From east of Destin to Pensacola. And that is why I won't be driving that way...heh. I think, but am not certain I was OP on this thread.

You can get a route from Google or Mapquest but you don't get local knowledge.

I'll vouch for that. We've stayed in Navarre the last couple of years in early spring and 98 can be "quite challenging"! Traffic on 98 can be worse than traveling through Chicago IMHO. [emoticon]
