Ok, trying to avoid going through Montgomery AL on US 82. It's a pretty seedy part of town from what I remember and I'd like to avoid it traveling alone with the girls and a trailer. Problem is, I cant seem to find a good alternative. Here is the map I'm looking at so maybe ya'll have a better idea than what I've found. http://www.milebymile.com/maps/Alabama_road_map.pdf
I'll be headed Westbound on US 82 from GA at Eufaula. The only real option I see is to follow US 82 to US 29 where I'd head North. US 29 turns into SR 14. SR 14 turns West and meets back up with US 82 where I continue on my journey.
I think this is the most direct route around Montgomery. Any opinions, other options?
Questions #2: I've gone to each state's DOT website for road closures due to flooding. Was there a more direct/easier method? I was hoping for a US Map or something showing all the closed highways but I didnt find any such thing. The States DOTs were sometimes confusing and lacking info. Is there a better way?
Thanks! I've learned so much about map reading and navigation from ya'll. No more interstates and following just the GPS for me! I'm excited about making my own route and seeing some sites. It's freeing when you get brave enough to venture off the Interstates, lol. Any helpful hints and tidbits are welcome. We're hoping this trip is more interesting then the trip to WY last summer where we stuck only to Interstates.
