Wisconsin to Mission, TX

We are heading down to Mission, TX and wondering if I should passed Dallas or Houston. Looks like we can hit either on a Sat about 10 or 11 AM. looks like either one will work. Any input? I thinking also to stay a little east coming down on 57 by Memphis and avoid St Louis.

We bypass all major cities. Just pick secondary roads and it's a lot more pleasant and you see more interesting things.

We always take I35 all the way to Texas. Our first goal is to get out of the snow and that means we travel a long day at first. We have stayed at the casino at Osceola, Ia. the first night, but then we hurry to get to Oklahoma City as quick as we can. Usually the second day. There is a CG there called Twin Fountains where we stay and de winterize the rig. From there you can take I35 to DFW and I45 to HOU. Your choice.

OKC has a lot to see and do and I recommend the "Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Museum". Also many good places to eat.

We often do that as well, but when we start out I just want to get to warmer climes quickly. The Interstates do that.

We didn't find Dallas traffic as bad as Houston. Houston was a mess.

We went through Houston mid-morning on a Saturday this past summer. It was no problem that time of day. You may want to check for construction on I-57 south of Mt. Vernon thru the rest of IL. There were a lot of backups this past summer due to major road construction. The route we took thru IL to Houston TX was Rt.57/55/40/30/ to Rt.59. Fairly easy driving except thru southern IL.

I just got down to Mission from the U.P.

If your goal is to bypass all major cities I assume you are bypassing Chicago as well.

Take this route and you will bypass all the big boys.

Fon du Lac-Madison-Champaign-Memphis-Dallas(635 bypass)-Austin-San Antonio-Mission

Beautiful weather here this week. Come on down
