Which Way Do I Go?

We plan to leave later this morning and begin the long drive home. I am not sure which route we are taking yet. I have been over and over and over the options. I may have to flip a coin to decide.

The route across I-40 to OKC and then I-44 to St. Louis and then I-70 home is the shortest route at about 1890 miles. 

I would like to go that route because of the length and I need to stop in Carthage, Missouri at Colaw RV parts.

There are two problems with that route this week. First, the overnight temperatures are forecast to be pretty cold. Secondly, there are winds at 20 MPH all the way to OKC. That could make for miserable driving for sure!

The second option from here is interstates 10, 20, 30 and 40 to Nashville and then I-65 north. 

That route is 160 miles farther but warmer temperatures and no high winds in the forecast. The  2 1/2 hours to drive the 160 extra miles would be worth it to miss the cold nights and especially the windy days of driving.

The bigger negative of that route is missing Colaw RV Parts. I need a few parts that I know I can get there and I have been planning to stop there for weeks.

There is some rain forecast for both routes so the clean BoggsMobile is not going to make it to Ohio clean.

I will need to make a decision in the next hour or two. Bring me a quarter, Kelly Jo.

Thanks for reading today.
