There are so many different ways to get to the southwest. There is the Northern route drifting southwest, Coastal route down the east to the south then west and the Central route. All depends on time. Do you have time to go any way you want? Is there a part of the country you want to see? Or do you need to get here (Abq) quickly... Main thing is to watch the weather systems which can make your mind up for you. Major roads to Abq are I40 or I25. There is always Rt66... I know this is not much help...

We only have 6 days to go 2500 miles so not much time to spend sightseeing. Our return trip will have time to stop and enjoy the trip. We are thinking about the northern route on the way to Albuquerque (sp?)

Sounds like a plan. Also sounds like the major interstate roads will be the way to go to make time. Again, watch weather this time of year. Midsection of the country could be tricky with storms. Major cities depending the time of day could be a slow go like rush hours. Speed limits will vary as well. Also sounds like you will be picking up I40 west. It's beautiful through Oklahoma but once into Tx pan handle to Abq a whole lot of nothing .... good luck. We are just east of Albuquerque off I40 the Moriarty area. Once past Santa Rosa west your just a few hours out.

Streets and Trips maps a 2210 mile route from Burlington to Albuquerque ... it goes through Buffalo, NY ... Columbus, OH ... Indianapolis, IN ... Oklahoma City, OK

I think there are some toll roads in the route ... but with the price of fuel these days often it is cheaper to pay the toll than to pay for the extra fuel it takes to follow road that avoid the tolls ...

I know for sure through OK just past Tulsa is a toll road. After that I40 straight to Abq straight and flat and free.

I would take I-80 to CO 385 to avoid the Denver traffic and weave your way to Trinidad, CO and I-25 via 385/287/350. Take I-25 at Trinidad, CO to Albuquerque. Have a good trip!

GunEbear,

The routing given by Skigramp sounds best to me. I just traveled from Indy to AZ in the past month. The toll roads are in OK. They are the Will Rodgers and the Turner both I 44. The toll for each was about 16.50 for five axles. The sticky part is the Kilpatrick toll road after the Turner. It is correct change only and the second portion is change only no bills, into a basket. If you carry a pocket full of change you will be OK, if not take I 35 or I 44 to I 40 at oak city

That route should be doable in 6 days.

Allyne, thank you I am so use to using Easypass for tolls I never gave large quantities off change a thought. We will make sure to have a good assortment of small bills and change easily assessable.
