We may be driving from Atlanta to/through Wichita next month for a hunt test and a short vacation adventure. We can travel either through B'ham, Memphis, Little Rock, Tulsa, etc., or go through Chattanooga, Nashville, St. Louis and-so-on according to Google, Bing maps etc. Mileage appears about the same. I see toll roads leading into and out of Tulsa. I drove through Memphis a few times last Nov. and Dec. and gettting through it to I-40 wasn't too bad. It's been a few years since I have driven through St. Louis to head out I-70 towards KC, and getting through St. Louis was a real pain due to interstate construction & closings. Maybe this had improved?

Anyone got any advice on what's the better route considering getting through traffic in the larger cities, toll roads, speed limits, etc?

The Memphis, Tulsa route would be my first choice but, if you're coming and going I'd do both routes. They are within 100 miles difference so it really doesn't matter.

Oklahoma toll roads require you to stop frequently and pay tolls so get yourself a roll of quarters before you get there.

You might take a detour to Macks in Stuttgart, Ar and a great little town.

Thanks! If we have time, detouring to Macks might be a good idea. I have not been there since the late 1980's.
