St Louis to Portland OR and back
I'm hoping to make a round trip from the St. Louis, Missouri area to Portland Oregon in 2012. It looks like I'll have to use some interstate highways, but I prefer not to. Route suggestions would be appreciated along with tips on coping with "interstates". I plan to use my 2004 R1150RT.
The Lewis & Clark Trail !
I allowed appox 7 days in 03 for the trip out the MO River; just before the 200 year mark of their quest. The heritage routes are numbered 1804 & 1806 in EACH State along the river; and they are very nice. You have the capability to shorten the route, especially in ND & MT if you wish; I didn't. Many journey site to visit that are top notch. I made it to Seaside OR from St Joseph Mo without Interstate AT ALL! Whatever you do, ride the Columbia River into Portland!
