Hi cindydsv,

While we don't have a route with those specific endpoints. I suggest you begin by taking a look at the routes that we have mapped to see which parts you could potentially use:

http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/network.cfm

Once you get to that page, in the right side navigation bar there is a link called Map of All ACA Routes that is a download of a pdf that clearly shows our network and how it intersects with itself.

The next step is to get in touch with the bicycle coordinators for the states in which you will be traveling through and need routing. Most have online resources of some sort as well as printed materials. The coordinators have a wealth of information that they can distribute for no charge. Most every state publishes a bicycle map of their state that they will send out for free. And while the maps aren't as detailed as ours, they generally offer suggested roads for cycling through their state. Here is a link to the contact information for all of the bicycle coordinators: 

http://www.walkinginfo.org/assistance/contacts.cfm

Once you have an idea of routing, it is a good idea ask more specific questions here on the forums and solicit feedback and refinements.

I hope this helps.

.Jennifer.

Just a suggestion.

The KATY Trail is on your route and would take care of Missouri for you. It's the longest rail-to-trail in the country. It would give you a nice break from the traffic.
