Blair Ne. to Hot Springs SD.

How are the roads from Blair/Fremont, rte 275 & rte 20. to Valentine Ne.??
Then Valentine, rte 20 to rte 385 to Hot springs. Taking a truck/trailer, traveling with motor home/toad. Would it be a better choice to go up I 29 to I 80, and west ??

I know 20 is all good in Nebraska, not sure about the other roads. If your coming from Wisconsin, I'd take all 20, but it is rough in parts of Iowa.

I have not travelled every mile of your proposed route ... but a significant part of it. The road varies between decent to good. There is overnight RV parking (30 amp) in the little park in Cody, NE. I stayed there a decade ago.

If you are into paleontology you will be passing within a few miles of Ashfall Fossil Beds State Park just a few miles from the junction of US 20 and US 275 near O'Neil ... if you have any interest in seeing the kinds of animals that roamed the Midwest in past times this is a must ... there is plenty of parking for RVs .... it will probably take you about an hour for the experience.

Thanks for the come-back. We are leaving the Illinois Samboree on Labor Day. Taking I 80 to Omaha/Blair, visiting relatives. From there we are heading to the Black Hills. Thought we would go "up", through Nebraska, instead of up I29 and across on I90.
That Fossil park sounds interesting. Will look for it. thanks.

This route has average + highway road conditions with light traffic volumes - hospitality will be a plus and Ashfall a good stop also - live 15 minutes from there --- many of the community's along the route will have hookup facility's for @ $10 a day - the" blue roads " in the fall are quite inviting ---
