Planning to do this trip in mid Sep. Google maps shows 2 options:
1. i-55 to Springfield, US36 to KC, 1-355 to Wichita, and then most of the rest of the way on US 400/56 - 1250mi 19h:07m
2. Mostly interstate - I-55, I-44, I-40 - 1305mi; 19h:26m
Which of these is really the fastest route? I worry about how many stops/towns there are for the 200mi stretch on US 400/56.
