As I mentioned on your other post regarding New Mexico you just need to keep a lookout for winter driving conditions primarily in Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico. Some of the worse blizzards in history have inundated the Texas Panhandle. Depending on winter road conditions if I-40 doesn't look to good it might be better to head toward Dallas on I-30 from Little Rock then I-20 and I-10 from Dallas to El Paso. This southern route is usually much better and least likely to have any snow at all.

When we head to southern Arizona every January we have no choice but to travel down I-25 from Colorado Springs to Albuquerque and then depending on any snow conditions at the time we either go west on I-40 to Flagstaff and south to Phoenix, or if there's reports of snow on I-40 we continue south on I-25 between Albuquerque to Las Cruces then I-10 west.

Pulley, just as a point of reference, two days ago it was in the 50's in Flagstaff and today they may get 6" of snow. As you will note in my signature we live in TN and only 6 miles off of I-40. We winter SE of Phoenix and long ago developed a great distaste for 40 beyond Little Rock, i.e. eastern OK can beat you to death. Good luck and safe travels however you elect to go, Ken,'04 DSDP....

I would drop down to I20 before I30, maybe Knoxville, down I75 to Chattanooga, to I24 weat to I65 to Birmingham, then on I20. A number of good campgrounds on the way and weather shouldn't be a problem. Stay on I20 to bypass both Dallas and Ft Worth and on to ElPaso on I10 and at the split of I10 and I8 north of Tuscon you can make a decision. 8 goes to the CA valley and 10 to Phoenix.
Have a great trip, and drive safely
