Having a TDI, I have to make sure there are gas stations with diesel. Many of the smaller stations, specially in country areas, I wonder if they carry diesel.

401 West to Windsor, cross at the bridge. Pick up I-94 towards Hammond, IN and stay on it when it becomes I80/I90. Stay on I-80 just over the IL line, and stick with it across the next 150 miles of IL, 306 miles of IA, and about 350 miles of NE. At about mile 103 in NE, jump on I-76 to Denver - 180 miles. At the end of I-76, merge onto I-70 west and take it to the end, in Utah. Then just ride into LA on I-15. You CAN do it in 2 days, but 3 is more realistic. Have fun!

It was too far to go especially only a couple of weeks after the 2016 Flyin' Miata Summer Camp! Maybe I'll have to route a flight via Milwaukee to knock off Wisconsin.

If I hadn't been pressed for time in June, I could have hit Rhode Island and just possibly New Hampshire.

I'm lucky to have visited all 50 states. Still several provinces to go. I've begun a new list of states I've ridden a bicycle. Up to 27 so far. Countries visited - 28 so far. The TDIs are limited to North America so far.

I'm only at 20 states for bike riding. Added 4 since my last post in this thread two years ago.
