Birmingham to LA

Going to be heading from Birmingham to LA in early September to see daughter who moved there in February just before the stuff hit the fan. We were to be there in May but no luck with virus. Was planning I20 to I10 route but now thinking it might be more comfortable heatwise going I22 to I40. Will be in sort of hurry heading out then thinking a more leisurely drive back after a 2 week stay in CA. Ideas on where to stay coming and going and alternate route come in late September would be appreciated.


Cheers Jake

If traveling the summer I would certainly consider I-40 vs I-10, the added elevation in northern NM and AZ should be a bit cooler than the I-10 route. Though it will still be very warm

If you are going to be in a hurry, the why not take I-20 to I-10. Yes it will be warmer, but your dash A/C and the house ACs should keep you plenty comfortable. I had to go from San Diego to Houston in August on two occasions. Not a big deal since we drove all day anyway.

For the return, take 40 and stop at the Grand Canyon, Santa Fe and Palo Duro canyon in Amarillo.

I am happy to suggest rest area overnights and RV parks along either route if you would like.

According to google the I-20/I-10 route is 35 miles farther than the I-22/I-40 route, so drive time should be very close either way.
