Going to be heading across Idaho, Montana, and North Dakota in May on my way to Madawaska ME, and would like any info (i.e. hotels, areas to avoid, rest stops, etc). I will be coming across I-90.

Thanks in advance.

Going to be heading across Montana and North Dakota in May on my way to Salt Ste Marie MN, and would like any info (i.e. hotels, areas to avoid, overnight/rest stops, etc). I may dip down into South Dakota and pay a visit to Sturgis time permitting. I will be coming across I-90 East.

Thanks in advance.

Can't tell you about anything specific, just some general travel tips from an experienced man of the road.
Lodging: 1. Pick up motel/hotel coupon books at rest stops, truck plazas, Denny's and other fast food joints near freeways. Great savings in them. 2. I use Choice hotels mostly cuz they have frequent promos that net you free stays and/or more points toward one. Get a rewards card, get an AMA/Choice ID number and make your reservations with CRS (central reservation system). 3. Sign up for Best Western's Ride Rewards - its through HOG, but you don't have to be a member, just go into their site and look for it. 4. Hook up with Windham Rewards as they represent many familiar hotels/motels. Put every CRS 800 number in your phone as you will usually get lower prices there than at the hotel desk. Coupons, however, will be even lower...usually.
Rest Stops: I avoid ones that appear to be empty or have too few people there. There's safety in numbers.
Hope this helped.

Going to be heading down to Key West FL from Madawaska ME in May, and would like any info (i.e. hotels, areas to avoid, overnight/rest stops, etc). Very much want to avoid the high traffic metropolitan areas, but would still like to stay on the Interstate for time reasons.

Thanks in advance.
