UT to JC in 5 weeks - route recommendations
Starting May 23, we'll be making our way from Zion in southern Utah to Jackson Center for warranty work. We'll have 5 weeks to make the trip. The only confirmed stop along the way is St. Louis, MO whenever we get there.
We prefer blue highways rather than interstates and short driving days (100-175 miles).
Plugging the destinations into Google Maps, if we were to take I-70 the whole way (which we won't, although probably will through central Utah since we would have already traveled 24/89/191 through Moab, Bryce, etc), it would be 1884 miles and take 27 hours through Utah, Colorado, Kansas (or Nebraska if we traveled further north), Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio.
We're wondering if any forum members have recommendations for routes, roads, and campgrounds along the way. Any help is appreciated!
