We'll all be planning out a route
We're gonna take real soon
We're packing up our suitcase
We can't wait for June (9th)
We'll all be gone for the summer
We're on safari to stay
Tell the neighbors we're truckin'
Okay, then. There are two basic routes we could take on our Summer Roadtrip Extravaganza and we can't decide which one. Distance doesn't play a factor in route choice because there's only six miles difference.
We're going to take our time and do the trip over five days. That will give us time to see a few sights, if they're near the freeway. Or catch a couple of movies. Or maybe meet a few of you along the way.
Here are our options.
We could go NORTH traveling through Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah. (This is the trip Jim and I made last fall.)

We could go SOUTH through Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah.

Both routes are the same to Kansas City, then they split off. I have no idea which is the easier terrain.
So what do you think? Which route should we take?
In your comment, tell us North or South and WHY. Also, suggest places to visit along the way.
We'll pick the route based upon how fun and interesting you make it seem, so don't hold back. Give us some good reasons to pick your route.
- Everyone who suggested the route we pick gets an entry in a drawing for some as yet unselected souvenir we pick up along the way.
- If we stop at your suggestion, you earn an entry for another as yet unselected souvenir we pick up along the way.
