I-40 is a long road. What section did you drive?

I use I-40 between Nashville and Amarillo at least once per year. There has been a complete resurfacing of I-40 across Arkansas and significant sections are under construction from the Arkansas/OK state line to OK City. From there to Amarillo it changes from concrete - bump-bump, bump-bump, to asphalt, fairly smooth and quiet except for a few sections that are feeling the effects of time.

I have made the same crossing using I-10 and I-20. Now that Arkansas is practically finished, I would use I-40. In fact, I will be using I-40 in July to get to Tulsa.

Five years ago I was westbound on I-40 in Arkansas. The road was so bad I thought I has damaged the front suspension. A DP was in the campground that I stopped at for the night and was crawling around under his coach looking for damage.
Three years ago it had all been resurfaced. PRior to that I was going north thru Louisville to bypass that road.

Traveled I-40 twice last year on way to St. Louis. I remember New Mexico's section of the interstate to be the rough. I don't remember complaining to Patty, except about New Mexico, so the rest of I-40 must have been ok.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

Last year when we went to NM I remember a section west of OKC that was bad, another one west of Amarillo, and NM was rough and under construction a good bit of the way. Hope its better this year.
