This site is a wonderful resource, but I feel I need to ask your advice on travel. I have to travel this coming Sunday, and while not in a super rush, I am not interested in extra miles if I can avoid them.
During my initial search, the maps suggest heading northwest from here up through SD and then I-90 into Spokane. My biggest concern is the rockies this time of year. I have a manual transmission Audi A4 with all wheel drive for the trip, I want to avoid state highways as much as possible, and would like to have lodging and food options mostly available.
Any input from any folks who have done this trip or at least the rockies portion would be appreciated. Thanks!
