When is the better day to drive from SD to POP over the weekend Saturday the 24th or Sunday 25th?

i think 25th, in the morning. many people still work on the 24th and will travel later that day to get home. on the 25th most will nurse a hangover, see family, go to church or continue drinking locally. the roads should fill up again in the direction of SD in the afternoon/evening of the 25th. it's a good idea to avoid that rush, even if you travel in the opposite direction.

Sunday the 25th for sure. The highways in the AM will be like a ghost town.

And the winner, Sunday the 25th. Apart from the rain it was a smooth ride with very little traffic. Just need to watch for some new potholes coming into POP.

To be honest, every time I make the trip up and back, it's always in the mornings. The earlier the better. The difference in traffic is like night and day.
