Kate is absolutely right, Bill. I quit using those damned things many years
ago for exactly that reason. When I travel, be it car or motorcycle, I only
use the "I" roads if I am in a huge hurry (which is usually never now that I
am retired!!). Lots of times, I don't even take a Rand McNally with me! I
pick up a state road map when I stop for gas and look for roads that go
through some interesting towns, state forests, parks, mountains, along
rivers...etc. Anything to have some great scenery. Sometimes I don't even
take a map. I just ask somebody along the road for a good way to go....
It's the journey... not the destination....
Of course, if you have time constraints...... Still... No need to go
through Denver. Go I-80 and I-29 to Kansas City. From there you'll find a
number of somewhat more scenic routes to Osage Beach.
