More update- Los Angeles to Georgia

I decided to finish the trip last evening and skipped one more overnight stop. We ran from Longview TX to LaGrange, GA for about 13 hours of driving- just felt we had to get to the barn.

As we moved east of TX traffic started to get a bit heavier but it was not ever intolerable and was well within comfortable driving conditions. Actually the road surface conditions on I-20 were generally good in Louisiana except around major cities like Shreveport and Monroe where things got a bit bumpy. But it was typical of what one would find in other east coast older cities. There was about a 15 mile section in Louisiana as we moved east near the Miss border that was concrete slab with some bad joints, but it was within tolerable limits for our rig's suspension.

I- 20 in Mississippi is beautiful. The scenery was nice and the road surface was like driving on silk. Mississippi really takes good care of I-20 making this the best road section of the entire I-10 and I-20 corridor- it was one of the finest drives I have ever experienced on a US Interstate.

IMHO the I-10 and I-20 east-west corridor is excellent for coast to coast RV travel and we will use it again. TX was big, a forever long road, and aside from their exit/entry ramp design--it was good. Sorry dear California- but that section of the trip and the LA area in particular just is not for me in my RV and we'll likely not drive in and to CA in out motorhome again. Loved Miss, AZ and NM.

The final section across Alabama on US 80 to Montgomery and then I-85 to LaGrange is an excellent route and we made good time. The only slow areas were on US 80 in the cities of Demopolis and Selma AL, but traffic moved well between the stop lights there.

Thanks all for weighing in on this. I had almost used the I-40 corridor but am so thankful I did the I-10 and I20 corridor instead. You were very helpful
