We will be driving heavy over 2.5 days to get to Minnesota to visit family for the weekend before our first game. Two options for our drive out to Minnesota:
It seems like the Northern Route through Chicago would be preferred, but I am concerned about construction and traffic. We would likely pass through Chicago on a Thursday afternoon (4PM) to do an overnight stop there and head to MN in the morning.
Could the southern route be better? I'm inclined to go that way.
