The van's all set for the long trek to Elkhorn Wisconsin this july! I was wondering if any of you had a preferred route there from Portland, OR. I plan on taking my time and stopping here and there. Mileage is important of course, but if one way's better than the other I don't mind driving a little longer. Any thoughts?

Ive made that trip a hundred times or more. If it was me id take I84 to I 82 to 395 and get on I 90 and run that to I94 all the way to wisconsin. Lots of open road and beautiful across there

That is going to be one sweet "Road Trip".
No rental van this year.....
I have not been farther west than Wisconsin driving YET.
These is rumors of a van event in the Seattle area in a year or two.
I really want to do that "Road Trip"

Its a "Van Thing"
