I just booked a room in Sedona for 7/5 through 12, not too hard.Dusty, we'd love advice, we have to blast it but I would take any secondary route that I can. So 412 will be on the list.Any other route advice, Massachusetts to AZ, sadly no twisties possible to-from but local to Sedona, will be VERY welcome.Fuel range on Scouts will keep us hydrated I guess!
Sedona is HOT and 135 miles from the Canyon. FYI, Flagstaff is much cooler and 50 miles closer. I'd recommend trying to get a room or campsite in the Canyon or Canyon Lodge, even for a couple of nights. By all means go to Sedona, it's a beautiful place and great ride from Flagstaff. Also, Williams has a train that goes to the Canyon that some like (I've not been there).For one leg of the trip, I'd go through the Black Hills and ride through Colorado on through SE Utah or the 4 Corners. I agree that N Indiana has some awful roads- but I have no recommendation what roads to take from NE. If you make it through Okla give Dusty or me a PM.
For a number of reasons, we will be based in Sedona for the week we spend out there, and we will be doing 412 across the barrens of OK.Planning the PA turnpike across, well, PA. I do wish we had time for a more sedate pace out, we may decamp early to cruise home through CO etc.I will PM when we get close.
Dusty & Ryter,Good info, if you don't mind my wedging into the conversation... I am traveling from San Diego to Maine in the near future and I-40 is a great deal of the route.So 40 is a bumpy road...? Concrete with bad seams or what...? All of it...?Thanks,Rob

Aaron , probably the fastest way across Oklahoma is 412 to 183 , then South to I 40 . It may look a bit longer and slower , with a very few SMALL towns to negotiate , but OKC is never ending , and I 44 from Tulsa to OKC and I 40 West from OKC carry a lot of truck traffic , one can never be sure if all but one lane will be closed . That being said , if you are acclimated to dealing with heavy traffic running at stupid speeds , then the I 44 to I 40 route might save fifteen minutes , if there are no delays . If you have never traveled through Oklahoma , our Metro areas will surprise you with how large and spread out they are , and how congested the traffic is . Think Chicago , or at least Minneapolis Heck , on a long trip that requires going through Tulsa , my departure times are early enough to clear T town by 4:30 AM , too many idiots . 412 is a broad smooth 4 lane all of the way to Enid , not much traffic , and I think 70 MPH limit . Just my very humble opinion . Dusty
So-412 to 183? looks odd-did you mean another route? 183 heads northwest or southeast when it intersects with 412.Or just turn left at Enid? And of course our fuel situation needs attention at 100-120 miles, I bet. Though we will see, and we are carrying a couple liters each.Packing now, leaving Tuesday afternoon, I hope. Feels a little like 1979 when we set out on a slightly crazier trip, though it will be a bit more luxurious I hope!
