So here is what I understand to be an optimistic plan. The roads in deserts and mountains make me nervous because I feel like there really are no slow roads, or places to take cover. Are non-interstate highways in the desert really safe to travel at 55? day 1 Milwaukee to la crosse - 218 miles day 2 la cross to sioux falls - 323 miles day 3 sioux falls to hot springs - 416 miles (this one seems super iffy, is it rude or dangerous to camp on an Indian reservation like I would anywhere else?) day 4 hot springs to casper- 196 miles day 5 casper to rock springs- 287 miles day 6 rock springs to salt lake city- 279 miles day 7 salt lake city to elko- 326 miles day 8 elko to susanville, ca -364 miles ( this also seems iffy long, I just didnt see and other destinations closer on google maps) day 9 susanville CA to garberville, CA - 253 miles Any destination other than Sioux falls and casper doesn't really matter to me. I would not mind way point suggestions from people who have spent more time on the road.
