Hey all.

Anyone taken Interstate 70 from Columbus to Denver, or a similar locations? Is it a miserable drive or fairly exciting with good stops and scenery?

Thanks!

I driven most of I-70 between those 2 cities and found it very pleasant, but I love rural interstate driving very much anyway.

Done it a lot of times. I liked it the first few times, but it gets old after the first few trips.

Interstate 70 from Ohio to Colorado is mostly just farmland and open prairie outside of the cities.

Yes, on that route you go through St. Louis and Kansas City to get to Denver. It gets pretty isolated in Kansas, hard to find even a gas station sometimes, let alone a restaurant.

Lost a blue Pantech Impact at a gas station somewhere off of I 70 Westbound between Columbus, OH an Indiana. Need it back, for some extremely personal information. Call (256) 714-8792 if it is found.

I've done the trek from Columbus to Indianapolis, and THAT part is miserable, so I think you're in for a long ride, but the good news is you get to see 3 big American cities with tons to offer: Indianapolis, St. Louis and KC (and Dayton if you want to).

It's gotta be better than 80-76 but beware,Eastern CO is the most boring place in America.
