My prefered route would be Sedona to I-40, 287 in Amarillo to 114 in Rhome, 121 South in Grapevine to 360 south (I live in Grapevine), catch I-20 off of 360 to I-49 south in Shreveport, 190 in Opelousas to Rt. 1 down to I-10 (I know parts of 190 can be a bear, but better than the construction in Lafayette last time thru), and on to I75. I've gone I20 to Jackson and south on 49 also, but like the camp grounds available on the first route better. Safe travels.

Just returned from Florida using I-10 which is good except for La & an area between TX state line & Beaumont TX.

Used I-20 since I want to bypass Louisiana on the way out, pleasant trip.

X2 on taking I-12. That's the straight through route to I-10 on the other side. To me it would make more sense to rename I-12 as I-10, and rename the I-10 loop down to New Orleans and then back up again as I-12.

Arrived in Florida around noon today. Took the I-40 to Memphis > I-22 to Birmingham > I-65 to Montgomery > Hwy 231 down to I-10. Overall the roads were in better condition that the I-20 route we took out to Albuquerque. We will definitely take this route back out in the fall. Traffic very light and good pavement 95% of the way.

The were 3 bad areas: 1- About 40 miles prior to leaving Oklahoma, there is a bridge being replaced and the lane changes are very dangerous. The concrete barriers are black from big rigs hitting them. 2- Birmingham's roads SUCK. Absolutely the worst 10 miles section of road that I have ever been on. I'm surprised our 5th wheel survived that torture test. 3- Memphis during a heavy rain is nerve racking considering there are 5x more trucks than cars and it's bumper-to-bumper with most of them 5-10 miles over the speed limit. We got lucky and followed a large delivery truck going 55 until we got out of town.

Overall it was an uneventful trip.....the best kind.

Thanks for all the suggestions!!
