Trip Advice

Hello, we are leaving Fort Worth,TX heading to Tampa,FL. Our first road trip in our Class C. Anyone made that trip ? Would like to hear which route you took and any travel tips you might pass-on. If you can help we would really appreciate it.

Instead of going from I20 to I10 in Mississippi on the 49 and 98 to Mobile. I would go straight south on I55 and then pickup I10. May also want to check the I49 going down to Lafayette and then east on I10.

I did the diagonal route through MS once and I didn't like it a lot.

RoamingGR1,
We did most (90%) of the opposite trip in April of this year, from Orlando to Denton before heading up to Amarillo. From East to West, our trip was Fl. Turnpike to I-75 (not necessary for Tampa destination). I-75 to I-10 in Lake City, and then I-10 over to Pensacola (my hometown) where we stayed a couple of nights. Then I-10 to US-98 in Mobile, US-98 to US-49 in Hattiesburg. US-49 to I-20 in Jackson (stopped to visit DW's alma mater at Millsaps) and on to Vicksburg for the night. We then took I-20 to US-69 and US-69 to US-380, and then across the McKinney-Denton portion of US-380.

The worst part was driving from McKinney to Denton, and that was because of the other drivers on the road. US-49 just south of Jackson was a badly paved road for about 10 miles, one of the worst on our whole trip.

I'd do the trip the same way, especially the Mobile to Hattiesburg part on US-98. It had been years (like 20+) since I'd been on that road, and back then it was a two lane narrow winding road. Now for the most part it is four lane except for right outside of Mobile, and that is not a bad section of road.
