Branson to Eugene, Oregon

we are trying to figure out if we can make Branson, Mo to Eugene, Oregon by taking the most direct route if we leave Branson on Nov 15th and get home by Thanksgiving. anyone travel the "direct route" during that time of the year. Is there a better route? obviously, snow is a problem...

Yikes!! I am not sure you want to even attempt the "direct route" at that time of year. My understanding is you leave Branson on November 15 and you want to be in the Eugene, Oregon region no more than eleven days later - is that correct? If that is so... I would consider a less direct route and enjoy the lack of snow going through the SW...

I've driven both the northern route over the rockies and through Salt Lake City and the southern route mainly on I40. The southern route is about 2400 miles vs 2000 for the northern route. Certainly an easy 11 day trip. I hate the trip through the rockies even in the summer. The roads are always under construction till the snow comes and then you can never tell what you'll run into. I agree with MM, take the southern route and enjoy an easy trip. BTW, stop at the Big Texan in Amarillo and try to eat the 72 oz steak. Free if you can.
