Florida to Springfield

We have some time - probably won't make this run until early April - but looking for some advice. We plan on going from north central Florida to Springfield, MO to visit family. We made the reverse trip a couple of years ago and had a stretch, through parts of Arkansas, that was really tough to do (up and down steep grades and very, very winding) with our V-10 coach pulling a toad. We took 60 to 63 from Missouri into Arkansas and found the hills to be much tougher than expected. Any thoughts on a route that would still get us there but not be too much for the old coach (and driver)?

Once we got to the Memphis area, heading to Florida, the trip was pretty easy. It is from Memphis to Springfield that has me looking for something a little less challenging. Is there an easier way or is it pretty much you get what you get?

Just wondering...thanks gang!

Living in the Branson MO area, I know what you are talking about. Last year we made the trip from Branson to Memphis via hwy63. Living in the Ozarks we are used to the winding roads etc, but driving 63 was asking alot. Coming home from Memphis we took Hwy 64 to 65 a much more pleasant drive in the Ozarks. I think you will be happier with that drive. Enjoy the Ozarks
