    Welcome!

    The fastest route is I-8/AZ-85/I-10/Loop-101/I-17/I-40/I-44/I-70/I-71/I-76/I-80. This will take you a minimum of 5 full days on the road, with overnights suggested:

    Holbrook AZ
    Amarillo TX
    Rolla MO
    Columbus OH

    Suggested city bypasses:

    Kilpatrick Turnpike around OKC (exact change toll, bring a handful of quarters, I think it's about $2.50)
    I-270/I-255 south around STL
    I-465 south around IND
    I-270 north around Columbus

    Adding to what GLC posted:

    Going around St Louis by I-270 is highly recommended any time of the day.

    We stayed on I-70 through Indianapolis, had no trouble. It will depend on the time of day and the day of the week you go through!

    For Columbus, I'd agree with the I-270 suggestion as well.

    Do *NOT* take I-270 *NORTH* around STL.
