I am driving my family to a reunion this Friday from Portage, MI to Columbus, MS. I have tried a few different map websites as well as relatives. They offer two basic ways to go.
1- head to Chicago, take 57 through Illinois, Missouri, pick up 55 in Arkansas and into Mississippi. My relatives say this is the long way- Microsoft streets and trips says its shorter.
2- my relatives and some map programs say to go through Indiana on I 69, into Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, and then Birmingham to Columbus, MS.
Does any have any suggestions on which way to go?
Every map program also gives a different distance ranging from 780- 840 miles. Very odd.
Any help greatly appreciated.
