Hi wsandjs,
Welcome to iRV2. The answer is no. And if you think that road is bad, try taking Rt 65 south.

Well, I found a route that in my opinion was significantly better. Took route 76 to Branson West, to route 13 which eventually merges with US160. Took US160 all the way north to US60 east to US65 and then up to I44. This route had a few much smaller hills and no trucks, but it is mostly 2 lanes with light traffic.

No, not kidding. I started in Branson West. The only small town you go through is Highlandville and you don't even really slow down. A few very small hills with about a 2-3% grade as opposed to the 5-7% on US65. And not very curvy at all. Speed limit I think was 60 which was fine. Took about 40 minutes to get from Branson West to Springfield.
