    Hey guys, first trip to Troy MI. I'm trying to decide on the best route with the least amount of hassle. From Albuquerque should I break off NE bound and take hwy 54 to Kansas > Springfield IL> North on I-55 to I-94 and over to Troy.
    OR Albuquerque > Oklahoma city> St Louis via I-44 > I-70 to I-57 north to meet up to I-94 and over to Troy.

    OR St Louis to Indianapolis VIA I-70A and work my way up to I-94 via I-69
    ??
    I'm running a stinger with 9 cars. Are there any cities here that I should intentionally try to avoid?
    Thanks.

    If it was me I’m running through the stl area I HATE Kansas City with a passion. But I’ve never hauled cars so other old hands might have better advice

    OKC to STL to Indy and up 69 is probably the quickest, as long as you aren't hitting big cities at rush hour you should be fine, there is nothing wrong with 40/54/50/75/36/72/57/80/69,,,,But it is slower and some 2 lane, are you under 13'6 and legal weight? Or are you are you being creative?

    Thanks. Is there anything in particular that you hated about Kansas?

    Weight is legal. Potentially 13' 9" but could adjust if absolutely necessary.

    Can't speak for Mototom, but I live out here and usually avoid going thru the middle of KC, It's not terrible, it's just kinda a CF, some places you are coming into traffic from the left side and have to cross all the way over to the right in a short distance, If I am heading out I70 east, coming from the south run the 435/470 around the bottom, if going up to 36, I run 435 west side north to the 152 cross over then pick up I35 just south of Kearney, Mo

    Kansas transit hit the nail on the head. It’s just the traffic there and if you exit the interstate there’s a few areas it’s a ##### to get back on because there’s no re entry but I don’t remember the exit numbers. I avoid it like the plague
     
    Problematique and KANSAS TRANSIT Thank this.

    You want NO part of I 80 in Illinois about now. Something is awry with the steel bridge by Joliet and last I saw that whole stretch is a gauntlet of skinny construction zones backups and gong shows.
