Going from Monroe LA to Milwaukee ...what are state routes/hwys like in LA? It’s extra 80 miles to Jackson, MS to take 55N, was looking at taking 183N off exit 145 on I20 and other hwys roads North from there and connect to I57?

What u all think?

They aren't too bad, but you're going to be going through small towns with a lot of speed limit changes and some traffic lights. I've done it both ways. There's more miles to go over to Jackson, MS, take 220 up to 55 and keep heading North through Memphis, but it's easier driving.

There's not really difficult driving on the route you mentioned. I honestly don't mind it. They will pretty much be one lane going in each direction. You'll be in some very flat farming country, very minimal traffic, but just pay attention to all the speed limits so you don't get pulled over in some small town that's needing the revenue. smile.gif

Cotton fields, rice paddies, and marsh. Not much to look at over that way. Except those tiny one redlight towns, and those communities with a gas station and a church where the speed limit drops.
