Let me suggest one more thing.

When coming out of Amarillo google maps will most likely route you through "Boys Ranch Rd." that is an awesome road in a sports car as it winds through the canyons heading north west. It's not a lot of fun in a MH though.

Take a look at going up to Dumas (87) then left to Hartley and Dalhart. It's only a couple of miles difference.

I see it. Since we are coming from I27 it looks like a straight shot north. Thanks for the info!!

I have the TSD EFS card and also plotted all my gas stops. I will not need gas until I get up into Walsenburg CO on I25 and the current price on TSD is about $2.85 or so. My whole trip looks like (at least currently) I will not pay over $3 for gas at any stop with the TSD card.

I have the FMCA TCS card and try to compare whenever I see a TSD price posted. I see your $2.85 price whereas my TCS would be $3.324. Significantly better on TSD.

Is your price today?

Today's prices per the EFS App. We travel in about 5 weeks but i am plotting our trip now with all stops. Decided to take 40 through AR and OK to Amarillo then down to Canyon TX.

We took 82 east out of Lubbock where we bought our MH. There’s a free RV park in Crosbyton just off the highway east of Lubbock. Loved the drive across Texas, nice road and great scenery. The towns are straight out of the movie ‘Summer of ‘42’ as they’ve been bypassed by the interstates. Lot of crosswinds when we drove there in April 2016. Have a great trip!
