Uhhhhh...why would you go from Detroit to Albert Lea via Des Moines? Admittedly, I'm originally from Des Moines, so I can see going there, but that's a long was out of the way to get to Albert Lea.

Hey Steve, Your intinerary shows you in Snoqualmie on Sat. 7/26 checking out the Snoqualmie Falls. The falls are a pretty spectacular sight. Maybe when you make it here we could meet up. Might be cool to meet a member of the forum and show off Challengers. Sounds like quite a trip! Cheers!

hey Steve, you'll be passing by me about 15 miles or so as you make it through Snohomish, WA. I live on the south end of Mill Creek and a mile from Seattle-Hill Rd, which takes you right into Snohomish. Sure wouldn't mind seeing your Challenger as you pass through.

i live in Idaho Falls, it's OK not much to do.
Good museum, the falls are nice and its eastern Idaho's shopping hub.(not hard to beat.)
Not much else to do though.
Except dirtbiking and snowmobilling.
Kevin Call, owner of Farr's Ice cream, has a big car collection.
Thunderbird, DeLorean, 2 or 3 vette's, Viper, Shelby GT and a Testarosa.

DesMoines to Albert Lea keeps me out of Chicago traffic. I am open minded to faster route.

Idaho falls and some other cities listed are not stops, but mileage markers for my drive time planning
