We run 177 between Dickson and Shawnee both directions about 5x per year - although never with our trailer. The road is straight as a string... fairly smooth... one lane each way for the most part... some passing lanes in places... speed limits 60-65 mph... only 3-4 small town slow-downs plus one drop to 50 mph where there appears to be no town. Stratford has a single 4-way stop as does Asher. Sulphur has a 25 mph zone on the south end through the Chickasaw park area.

Thumbs up

Thanks much Mr. Dan. I appreciate all the details. Planning a route from Austin to minimize time on I35 on my way north and US177 looked like a good alternative in OK.

We run up to Wes Watkins Lake (McCloud) a couple of times a year for a field trial north of Meeker.

I'm guessing you go to Madill and then over to Dickson. Is this better than 35 to Norman then 9 going east?

Just looking for a better route than OKC.

Once again I'll say Oklahoma roads suck.

Yes, we live near Sherman, TX and it's roughly 45 miles west to I35... then we'd have to drive back east several miles to get to Shawnee. So we use US82 from Sherman west to Whitesboro and pick up US377 to Madill then over to Dickson and straight up to Shawnee.

When we lived near I35 in Denton county, we drove it north and got off at Davis and went east to Sulphur to hit 177 OR we got off at Paul's Valley and went east to Stratford to go north on 177.

I don't understand the difference then. I drove 62 mph on cruise control and didn't even have a plastic cup out of place.

US 69

Just drove US 69 from Big Cabin to McCalister pulling 25 ft travel trailer.
Road is very rough even the left lane. Indian Nations turn pike is a bit better.
