My husband and I are driving (with our pup) this August from Mesa, AZ to St. Paul, MN. We're planning on leaving after work on a Thursday and driving 2.5 hours to a family cabin in Heber, AZ to get a kick start on the trip and a few hours under our belt. We're having trouble deciding to either go through NM-OK and up through Kansas towards MN or going through NM-Colorado-Nebraska.
The times on Mapquest are relatively close (Colorado route a little longer) but does anyone have any opinions on which route is easier to drive? We also need a stopping point for that 1st long day of driving. We're trying to aim for 12 hours each day Friday & Saturday.
Thanks for the help! I've been staring at maps and re-doing directions over and over and have been going a little crazy. :-)
