I-20 to I-45

US 62 to US 180 to I-20 to I-45. I-20 doesn't reach El Paso.

And yes, I know US 62 and US 180 overlap for a long way, but US 180 overlaps I-10 (which is banned on this route) while US 62 doesn't.

On second thought, I'd use US 62 to US 180 to US 87 to US 290.

Now for another one: Moon to Mars. No spacecraft allowed. (Hint: search around Pittsburgh)

You could’ve also used TX state routes.

Take Brodhead Road which becomes a part of PA-18, then continue on PA-18 across the Ohio River to PA-68, then take PA-68 to Quadrant Route 3015 and you’re there!

Brigantine to Cape May without using the Parkway or Route 9.

Stay between the Intracoastal Waterway and the ocean. There should only be one obvious way to do this, although most of it is not on state routes.

Right down the barrier islands.  Starting in Brigantine: Brigantine Blvd to North Carolina Ave, then right on Atlantic.  This road takes on several different names (Ocean Drive a few times), but other than for a few left turns when the road ends, you can make it down to Cape May in a straight shot.

Perth Amboy, NJ to Riverhead, NY without paying a toll.

Depart Market Square via Market Street, then use Goodwin Street and the Smith Street Bypass-Connector to Smith Street, then take the exit to US 9. Use the Parkway’s toll-free section from US 9 to the Chestnut Street exit, then take Chestnut Street to Stuyvesant Avenue, then followed by a quick sharp right and left onto Elmwood Avenue, followed by a quick right and left onto SR 82. Continue on SR 82 until the Maple Avenue intersection, with a right onto SR 124 eastbound. Continue on Springfield Avenue until the exit for the I-78 local lanes. Exit the local lanes onto SR 24, followed by an exit onto I-287. Exit left onto I-87 (NY State Thruway) and take the exit onto NY SR 17, then continue on SR 32. Turn right onto Smith Clove Road, which becomes Mineral Springs Road, which becomes Angola Road, then take the exit onto US 9W, then exit onto Old US 9W, then take the ramp to River Road, which becomes Water Street, which becomes Leroy Place, then make a right onto Old Balmville Road, with a right back onto US 9W. Continue on US 9W until reaching Kingston, then right onto SR 32 again. Return back to US 9W, then zig-zag across Esopus Creek and continue right onto US 9W in Saugerties. Right onto SR 144, then continue back onto SR 32 again, then exit onto I-787 and exit again onto the South Mall Arterial, then make a quick sharp exit onto Swan Street, then make a right onto Washington Avenue (SR 5) followed by a quick left onto Eagle Street immediately followed by a quick right onto Pine Street, then make a quick left back onto SR 32 (Pearl Street). Make a right onto Orange Street which immediately becomes a ramp onto I-787 northbound (again), then quickly exit onto I-90’s free crossing of the Hudson River, then exit back onto US 9, then circle the roundabout onto SR 9H, which joins SR 23, then turn left onto SR 82, then exit onto the Taconic State Parkway, then continue south on the Sprain Brook Parkway, then exit onto Central Park Avenue (SR 100), with a quick exit back onto I-87 (NY State Thruway). Continue onto the Major Deegan Expressway, then take Exit 3 to Exterior Street and then continue onto 135th Street, then make a left onto the Third Avenue Bridge over the Harlem River, quickly making an exit onto the Harlem River Drive, which soon changes into the FDR Drive, taking Exit 12 onto York Avenue, followed by a right onto 59th Street and an exit onto the Queensborough Bridge, which dumps you onto the Outer Roadway of the Queensborough Bridge over the East River and Roosevelt Island, which dumps you onto Queens Plaza, left exit onto Queens Boulevard (SR 25), with a right onto Van Dam Street, then a left onto Borden Avenue, which soon ramps onto I-495 which strictly becomes the LIE past Exit 19 (before which it is also known as the Queens-Midtown Expressway), finally exiting at Exit 71 onto SR 24 (Edwards Avenue), which soon becomes Nugent Drive, then circle around the roundabout onto Peconic Avenue and then make a right back onto SR 25 (Main Street).

However the way back is much shorter, as one doesn't need to go all the way to Albany in order not to pay tolls :sombrero:.

Next one: Boston to Manchester without using Interstate, US, or state routes. (Hint: there's always good old England)
