Trip west

My wife and I are planning the trip west to Colorado Springs area this spring. My route choice and plan has been up I-75 from Fla. thru Atlanta/ Tenn. and on to I-70 west. Is this a good idea regarding "Tornado Alley" or would I 10 across Texas and up I-25 be the better route? Have gone both routes before but never this early in the year.

I prefer 10/25, mainly due to ease of travel, less hills, and some excellent places to stay on the way (Chattahootchie, Lake Charles, Kinder, Kerrville, Santa FE). I think it's more miles, and you have to time your trip around traffic areas (Houston), but I think it's worth it.

+1 This would be my choice as well.

We usually go up 75 to Chattanooga then 24 west thru Nashville. thru Illinois and to avoid St Louis the miles of boring, boring I70 west of there, with Kansas City thrown in for good measure, go a bit further north to I80 and then west. Iowa has more (though still boring) hills and scenery than Missouri and Kansas.

Thanks to all for the in put. We have decided to do I-10/25. Now working on places to stay for a few days in Louisiana the around San Antonio. In Louisiana we are looking at Hidden Pond CG in Sulphur and also Lake Fausee Pointe St Pk south of Lafayette La. Has anyone had experience with either? From site pictures it appears the elec/H2O hook ups at the St.Pk. are on the passenger side of the coach?? Any way thanks for you help.

I prefer A+ campground on LA 27 in Sulphur. Hidden pond has a lot of full timers that are working in the plants around here. A+ has some also, but the area around the pond in the middle is usually reserved for short time stays.

I believe it was Travelers World Campground we stayed at in San Antonio. Nice park very helpful staff. 5 mile from the river walk & Alamo. $1.20 get you a ride on the bus from the park to the river walk. Bus stop is across the street from the park. Bus comes by every 20 minutes. There is also a paved walk path from the campground to the river walk. Nice for bikes. Would for sure recommend the river walk to anyone.

Count me in as another vote for A+ Campground in Sulphur. We stayed there a few weeks ago. It is very nice.

I would take the "Southern route" out, and the "northern" back. Florida to I 10 west to I 25 etc etc. That would be cooler weather in each direction.. The I 80, it is a good route in spite of the trucks. Lots to see/do along the way,.. East to I 39 in Illinois, make your way to Nashville, then I 65 south to Alabama 231 to I 10. I would drive many mile out of the way just to AVOID ATLANTA.. Al 231 is a really nice road.
