Need routing help, RV traveling from Winnipeg to Memphis ... our usual route has closures and detours.
posted by batikrose to Travel & Transportation (3 answers total)
So in about 10 days we take our annual journey from Winnipeg to the Memphis area. Usually we go I-29 from the Canadian border to Kansas City, then east, but I just learned that parts of I-29 in North Dakota and Iowa are closed, with lengthy detours.
We are on a time schedule (3-4 days to get to Memphis), and driving a long pickup towing a 32 foot fifth wheel, so (non-freeway) detours through urban areas, etc. are undesirable.
I am looking for the following things:
1) alternative routes without detours... perhaps through MN
2) information on road closures/detours on major alternative routes, as well as on I-29
3) websites to find specific, current, information now and just before we leave ... keeping in mind I will not have internet access while on the road and do not have a smartphone. For that matter, no phone at all.
4) anything else pertinent
Thank you much mefi for the help!
