Duluth, MN to Fargo, ND. OK for Class A

Taking trip from northern MI to western ND. GPS sez go from Duluth to Fargo via 200 and 10 to I90. We'll be travelling @ night in a Class A towing a trailer. 6 guys on a bird hunting trip. Need to "get there." Good idea or not? We usually go across on US2.

G'morning from Sedona, AZ. We now full time but retired out of Duluth back in 05 and grew up and lived in Northern MN.

Yes, Rt. #2 WNW out of Duluth up to Rt. #200 W (just above Floodwood, MN) and then Rt. #34 from Walker WSW to Detroit Lakes and on to Rt. #10 W. into Fargo is VERY doable. It is a good two lane blktop through forested lake country most of the way. You should have no problem.

An alternative route which is also a good one would be to follow I-35 S. out of Duluth a short way to Rt. #210 W. (just below Scanlon, MN) and follow Rt. #210 through Brainerd, MN (where my daughter lives) and catching Rt. #10 at that point (just W. of Brainerd) and on into Fargo. This route might be a little quicker.

We currently are official residents of South Dakota and hang out alot in the Mitchell, SD area where my wifes BIG family lives. LOTS of birds there also.

Good hunting!!

Steve

We were in Minnesota last week and there was construction on highway US 10 between Minneapolis and St. Cloud. Traffic in one area was reduced to one lane. If you take that route you might want to check the MN DOT site to see if the lanes have been opened.

Thank you,
There is no quick way across WI nor MN is there? We'll see what happens when we get there. It will be the middle of the night next Thursday. 22 hr ride. 3.5 hours at the wheel each guy. Not too bad. Long haul though.
Haven't hunted SD yet, but might take a long weekend trip in early Dec. We have friends in western ND where we go.
Again, thanks Steve.
Walt

Well, we're back home. They were working on the route 2 bridge, so we took the truck route through the north of Duluth. I was asleep. We took 2 anyway, mainly because the gps said to go that way. 1130 miles in 22 hours with fuel stops. We played cards, slept, watched movies, read, etc. We had a great time, got our limits, made it home safely.

Oh yeah! We had a ball. Can't believe all of the activity related to oil and gas well drilling in the area we visited. Crazy.

Talked to my friend in ND a few minutes ago. He said they have over a foot of snow on the ground, and, he's out plowing it.
