    Hey everyone
    Has anyone taken US-212 as a shortcut to I-90?
    Because I-90 dives into Wyoming, it saves me 60 miles by doing on 212 but I see this is a surface road which may be difficult to pass slower traffic, not sure of steep hills and city slowdowns and snow.
    I often avoid the whole thing by going on I-94.
    Anyone been on here? Is it worth the detour?
    Would appreciate anyones input.

    Its a good road. 2 lane middle of nowhere. 1 big pull on the indian res, nothing to crazy. If not tight ontime id just stay on i90... theres a nice truckstop in moorecroft wyoming.... Nowhere to stop on 212. Make sure u full of fuel and snacks

    I think there was something a year or so ago posted here about avoiding 212 as the Indians dont like trucks cutting across the res or something like that so I would just stick to 90 as well.

    I must add tho if you wanna see how the other side lives by all means do run it ! Especially on the Montana side ...you may even get some money saving tips on how to board up broken windows in a trailer house or shack , along with how to get the max number of junk cars in the yard .
    Skinny horses add to the ambiance of the junk cars and appliances, lawn mowers are illegal there .
