It will take at least a week,more if you really look around.The original road is kinda broken up,a few parts no longer exist(so they say).It's gonna be a two lane blacktop with some gravel here and there.But easily passable with a 2wd car,motor home.As in much of the southwest,there will some places where there will some long distances between tows/services.Plan ahead,heed the signs.Never actually been there,so take this with a 'grain of salt'.It will be a woonderful trip,wish we could go with you!.Happy travels!

Couple of trips I would like to take is US 50,it goes coast to coast.I 'live' on 50,have traveled it from eastern KS to east/mid Utah.Other one is US 287.It goes diagonally from Florida to Washington state,right through Colorado.

I grew up right between HWY 50 and HWY 40 my best friend in the Navy lived between both HWYs we lived 3000 miles apart. Take 80 (old US 40) out to the west it follows the Oregon trail just watch for signs to turn off to see the sites. My family came out in 1843 on the first wagon train to make it all the way to Oregon. It's a little better now.

One that I'd recomend is north to south,US 127. Mostly 2 lane,but 4 lane in places. I've been on all of it from Grayling Michigan to Chattanooga Tennessee. One of these years,I'm gonna travel the rest of it. Two lane and rural through Ohio,although Cincinatti is a ROYAL PAIN. Beautiful scenery through Ky and Tn.

we live in Crossville TN about 2 miles from 127, yes beautiful drive highly recommend it, you can easily bypass Cincinnati on the interstates, then get right back on. Also Cincinnati is a fun town if you want to spend some time there

Yes,I usually take 122 out of Eaton Ohio over to Middletown,get on 75 then back on 127 at Florence Ky. You can take 127 down as far as Hamilton and take local streets over to 27 and get on 75 if you want to go on down farther.

Crossville,geez,you're right in the heart of it. The Valley of the Three Forks to the north of you is absolute Heaven on earth,then to your south,down through Pikeville,Dunlap and up on Signal Mountain,second only to what's north of you.
