We travel slowly on the road (200 miles per day at "double nickel" speeds) so we like to use US HWYs versus Interstates.

Has anyone traveled the US HWYs that parallel I-80 east from around Cheyenne, WY to Peoria, IL?

We're specifically talking about US 26 from Guernsey, WY to Ogallala,NE then picking up US 30 to US 34 around Grand Island, NE and following it across Iowa and Illinois then US 24 into Monticello, IN.

Any advice or warnings are appreciated!

OpaRon,

There's lots to see as you take your time travelling:

<LI>Gurnsey, WY - Oregon/Mormon Trail sites, wagon ruts in the rocks, Newspaper Rock, Fort Laramie Nat'l Hist. Site
<LI>Scottsbluff, NE - Scotts Bluff Nat'l Monument, nearby Chimney Rock Nat'l Hist. Site
<LI>Kearney, NE - The The Great Platte River Road Archway is a wonderful way to learn about the westward expansion of the USA. It's about a two hour stop to do the exhibits but you are welcome to camp overnight in the large parking lot (we did).
<LI>US 26/30 - Trains, Trains, and more trains. You can't believe how much coal comes out of Wyoming! Either in North Platte or Grand Island (memory lapse) is a railroad yard that is 5 miles long and 1 mile wide!

The route is fine for travelling if you are OK with little towns at regular intervals. If you have time before you go, ask AAA or the state tourism bureaus for visitor info on more sites to see.
Enjoy the ride
