Columbus oh to Greenbay Wi Chicago gets in the way
From central Ohio to Green Bay Wisconsin looks problematic. I've been looking for a reasonable route while avoiding I-90 through Chicago.
Google maps suggests I-290 but that takes us right by O'Hare. The other problem is that trying to make this a two day drive puts Chicago right in the middle of the 7-8 hours the trip will take (not including rest stops).
Since this is complicated (so it seems to me) I'll add that we are leaving on a Sunday expecting to arrive at upper Door County WI on Monday. I don't want to drive anywhere in Chicago on a Monday morning.
Coming home we leave on Friday and so will hit Chicago either Friday night or Saturday morning.
I have control over the route and where we stop but not on the days, either going up or coming back down.
Any thoughts or suggestions welcome. Looking for a route I can do pulling the Jeep (makes us 57 feet in length), a place to stop going up and again coming home, does not have to be the same spot. Our actual destination is the Hy-Land RV Campground at the top of the peninsula (Door County Wi).
I thought there may be some who have done this or close to it and can advise on route and places to stop, (does not need to be fancy but safe is an objective).
Gary and thank you. DW is determined to get there and we can't change the dates, (mid July).
