Yes, the map I posted has problems, I have started to trust Google about as much as I trust my GPS navigation system. I think that route is mostly forest roads/ fire trails.
If I do this trip, one goal will be to have as little human contact as possible. I will not be going on group events. Now that my home state is a covid red state, I may get checked at the state line of some state anyway.
I spend a lot of time taking pictures of nature and scenery when I travel and at the end of the year make a personal calendar That I call “Scamping America”. This year I will take a drone along. It is always a challenge to pick 14 pictures for the calendar when I get back.
The picture posted below is the cover from my 2018 calendar. It is from the Chamberlin SD rest area with the “DIGNITY” sculpture. Most of the pictures chosen show the Scamp
(kind of a “Where’s Waldo” shot), but snakes get my attention also.
Thanks for the replies, I will keep checking for more until I hit the road. I have no date set, I will just get in and go someday when the mood hits to do the Willie Nelson thing, the “On the Road Again” thing, not the other one.
