Canadiancrew, we went via Chicago once and never again. Getting held up in traffic for a few hours is not my idea of fun. So we go up to St. Ignace, catch #2, go to 41 up to Marquette and stay at Michigamme Shores campground. Then 41 to 28 to #2 again in Wakefield, MI. If you follow #2 all the way, it dips down south so we avoid that. Like you said, less traffic, roads are good and scenery is great although seeing the badlands going the Chicago way was great. We're heading out that way in June until September.

I agree ~~~ once through Chicago is enough for a lifetime. Never again!

As stated, a average is 50 MPH while traveling. Hours a day is dependent on each of us. Remembering that pushing yourself to exhaustion risks harm to you, your family, and the lives of other families on the roadways!

If we don't hand to be any place at a certain time I try to only fuel up once a day which works out to be about 400 Kms (250 miles) a day.
