I am planning a tour for the spring. I am coming up with 3 possible routes from my house and the tour will be 2 days out and 2 days back. I have never tried to come up with a tour before, but I have had great luck drawing out my Gilligan's Island type tours (the 3 hour variety). How do I know what roads/highways are considered tourable? Should the highway have a shoulder if it is not very busy? I live in Omaha Nebraska at the western edge of town, so all of my routes are very rural. I want to stick to rural/state highways that hit towns every 10 miles or so. Is there an increment between towns that should be considered too far or not a good idea? It's just hard planning something out not knowing what really lies down the road. I just do not want to drive 240+ miles and blow that gas or time.
