Well we weren't going to go down to SA cause it wasn't very direct to get us to El Paso which gets us to phoenix on time for thanksgiving, so are you saying to avoid 20 ?

Jeff,

Take I-30 to 635 (LBJ) in Mesquite, you will go south on 635 and 635 will turn into I-20. That will take you around the main part of Dallas and away from the downtown area. I-20 will take you through Arlington and
Ft. Worth but you will be south of the downtown area of Ft. Worth.

Hope this helps,

Jim

Jeff is blowing smoke! You should see some of the words he posts! I've just played longer and know more high scoring tricks. It is fun tho to play with a friend because there is a chat feature and you can harass while you play.

You can go 380 off of 30 south - all the way to 281 - down to 20. You will be slower but happier. But you will have to add up the time to see if it's worth it. Too late to say leave sooner and take more time - but driving through Dallas is not something I will do unless I have to... I will avoid it because the construction never and mean never ends. And the drivers are like any other big city... except they are "America's Drivers" :-)

He'd I've lived here in DFW most of my life. Jim's directions are dead on. Come in on 30 to 635 in Mesquite go south on 635 to 20 west and you will stay south of downtown. There is a little construction on 20 between Dallas and Ft Worth and again on the Southwest side of Ft Worth but it's not bad.

Hello to the Texas Mutants,

Thank you all for your input into my question, y'all are so very helpful. Steve , Jim , and Herb I'll pass the info on to my navigator and she will wind us through the afore mentioned obsticals with ease, she only closes her eyes when it gets scary.

Herb we would love to stop and have a mini, but my daughter is pretty much begging her daddy to be there for Thanksgiving and those of us that daughters , well ya know they can twist ya round their fingers.

Marty I know they make good chews but at the price of venison these days why those would be some mighty fine dogs indeed ...... lol ......

Cheers !!!!!

For the record, cows have horns, deer have antlers!

Looking at great looking racks is not porn!

Jeff - I looked at it again - and at Greenville - you can pick up 380 West - leisurely run 380 to the little 288 loop around downtown Denton. It will run you around to the access road of 35 right past Camping World. Stay on access road for about a mile and take a right onto 380 again... over to Decatur. From there south on FM 51 to Weatherford where you pick up I-20.

This route will be ho-hum - some stop and go and add about 30 - 45 minutes to your trip and 2 years to your life.

Some mutants like mixing it up with the big rigs in big city traffic. This mutant does not. Unlike Herb and Jim - we have cast our vote with our feet and wheels - you can have DFW - and it's highway system... we are riding the rural rainbow every chance we get.

By the way - once you hit 20 - out of Weatherford you should be good to go... pretty much nuthin but net to El Paso as I recall.

On edit - you now have Di Joining with Jim and Herb on the 35 / 635 / 20 route so go for it. What do these three have in common. A Stick and Brick. LOL

We are in El Paso for the week. But you do not want to mini c with us. Larry has a terrible cold which i am getting over Lol. Darn. But you sure dont want to take that as a turkey day present
I agree with Herbs route.

Nothing but net to El Paso. But watch your fuel. Those stops are really stretched out here.

Me and my family of eight should be classified as RV Mutants and so wish to be.

Even though we have a diesel pusher which would be considered a middle class RV there are still things that we do not currently have like:

TPMS, integrated smartphone monitoring system, bathtub, hottub, second bathroom, large enough kitchen sink, tankless hot water heater, heated tile floors, air bladder slide seals, two master bedroom slides, and extra freezer.

So we are not really roughing it, but we are doing without from when we lived in our house. But we do not miss any of the above and enjoy our nomadic lifestyle very much. We would have it no other way and do not ever plan on living in a house again.

So I feel like we are RV Mutants and would like to join this group.

Thanks!
Don
