Reverse direction and you’ve got it. Which Vancouver? There’s more than one FYI.

Ok, just making sure. Got confused for a moment or two.

I-5 to I-84 W to I-80 to I-94 to ON 402 to ON 401 to ON 403 to QEW (Queen Elizabeth Way) to the Gardiner Expressway to the Don Valley Parkway.

Thanks for figuring that one out...couldn’t fathom not hugging the lake shore of Lake Michigan.

Your move on how to get from one city to another without using a specific highway.

At the time I type this, Google is suggesting you'd save 10 minutes off that time (or 32 miles) by taking IL-47 north through Woodstock into Wisconsin, then WI-120 and US-12 to Elkhorn.

I was wondering the same thing. Not a bad time-saving route as compared to the original ‘answer’ to your ‘question’.

Salt Lake City to Denver. However, all roads within the roughly rectangularish-shaped area formed by Interstates 15, 25, 70 and 80--including those interstates themselves while forming the borders of this area--are off limits.

Round 1: Find a route north of I-80.

Round 2. Find a route south of I-70.

Round 1: Find a route north of I-80.

Round 2. Find a route south of I-70.

Keeping it to numbered routes only, and staying off those interstates:

North of I-80: US 89, UT 106, US 89, (summer only: I-84, UT 167, UT 39, UT 16), UT 30, WY 89, US 30, US 189, WY 372, WY 28, US 287, WY 220, WY 487, US 30, WY 34, WY 312, WY 320, US 26, US 85, WY 219, US 85.

South of I-70: UT 68, US 6, UT 257, UT 21, UT 160, (summer only: UT 153), US 89, UT 62, UT 24, UT 95, US 191, US 491, CO 141, CO 145, CO 62, US 550, US 50, US 285.

I don’t really see the point.

I wonder if it's possible using only numbered routes (no local streets). There are some areas that look a little tricky to navigate!
