Thanks. Tim

I would not be comfortable taking 170 out of Terlingua to Presidio. We came down 385 and left up 118. 170 along the river is a fantastic drive, but not in a MH, for me. We are in Mcallen right now, headed for Tucson in a week. I like Rt 90 over I10.

Your rt. is fine. last over it Oct 14, lots of construction, should be complete by now. A couple ST. Parks to consider, Lake Casa Blanc in Laredo, and Seminole Canyon west of Del Rio. They have a nice hike into the canyon to visit the pictographs

If you want, check out Stillwells Campground. It is on a deadend road that goes to the left right before you enter the park. Really quiet there, and there is a ghost town at the end of that road in Mexico,,, kind of creepy.
