Hi everyone,

Recently I read a book set in the 1920's that was supposed to be based on a true story. In this book, the main character was from southern KY, and he drove from there to Canada on U.S. 25! I loved this book, especially how he described the scenery. He described in detail all the stops along the way, and even named the "boarding houses" he stayed in on his stops.

Now, the reason for the post. Since reading this book last year, I have been dreaming of driving his route! Of course I would be starting in Richmond, KY, as 25 runs right thru it. Advise, all? What towns does this cross thru? Is the road still open the whole way? Anything I should know? I would love to compare his book to the modern US 25!

We are planning this trip for October, and am going to take 1 week to drive the length. All advise is happily accepted!

All the best,
~joanna~

Do you remember the name of the book? It sounds like something I would really enjoy reading.

I'm not sure if you could get all the way to Canada on US25, but I am quite certain that you can do so on either US31 ,US27, or US23. My vote would go for US31, if only because of it's trek across the beautiful Indiana farm country. I hope this helps you.

Thanks Highliner! We have planned the trip, and will be heading out the first week of November. We are going to drive 25 until it ends, and that's where we will be!

The name of the book was Cold Creek Crossing, and I still can't find it! My kids have misplaced it, and I've torn my house apart looking. Oh, well...
