Will be leaving Dallas for Birmingham on or about Nov 3rd. Any sugestions on avoiding interstates? I-20 to I-59 is interstate route but I don't want to use it. Thanks,Ed

Use Google maps and select avoid highways. Google maps will give you three different routes to chose from.

i20

we love going to huntsville and guntersville. i refuse to put my coach on i20 in misissippi, it will create some new rattles. we plan our trip up and across so we can come down on i 65. i65 to birmingham is good also.

The last time we were on that section of I-20 around Jackson we lost one of the chrome hub covers on the rear axle and it jared the rear camer wires loose.

We have tried Rt 84 that runs east/west just south of I-20. Then you can get on I-59 to Meridian. If you don't mind running on 2 lane roads, its not a bad route. I-59 is in good shape. The last time we were on it was last year.
