My wife is driving our dog Bailey and myself from Minneapolis to Baton Rouge We will be traveling through Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Mississippi, and Louisiana primarily on I-55. This trip will be the end of April. What things should we stop to see? Should I call anyone? We plan on being in BRLA for 4 days. A side trip to NOLA. Stops in Memphis, other Cities along the route.
We have a new van that has lots of windows. Since I will not be driving, I will use a screen on my side window and a towel on my lap. I wear SPF 50 clothing and bring lots of water to drink on the trip. If we can travel you may be able to travel also.
It is about 20 hours of drive time. Plus time for rest breaks and food breaks.
Our next trip is to Campbell River, BC for a renewal of our vows on July 1. Going out we will be going through ND, MT, ID (north), WA, and BC. We have not decided on the trip back other than WA, and OR.
