I live in Colorado and have made the trip to east TX near I20 several times. I settled on the route shown on this MAP. I take US287 from Amarillo to Decatur, then US380 to Greenville and US69 to the intersection with I20.

It may not save distance but I find the route more relaxing. If your travels should bring you to Amarillo you might consider this route.

We drove to Florida from New Mexico last November and traveled I-40 to Amarillo....... 287 to 380 in Decatur to Denton..... 35E to just northwest of Dallas...... 635-E to 80 near Mesquite...... east onto I-20 to Jackson, Mississippi. Then 49 to Hattiesburg...... 98to Mobile where we joined I-10. It was a good drive and we are planning on driving the same route this November.

Since the consensus is I-20 thru DFW area--plan on a stop at the Buc-ees Travel Center in Terrell, east of Dallas. If you haven't been to one of these, don't miss stopping and fueling there. Probably 200 pumps, each with gas/diesel. Very reasonable prices, if not the best around. NO SEMI TRAFFIC ALLOWED, and they keep the drives spotless if diesel is spilled. You won't be disappointed.

I agree Buc-ees is a destination in itself and the one in Terrell is one of their larger locations, in recent years they have started expanding outside of Texas, with locations in Alabama and Florida, and more to come in other states. They do keep them clean and even have full time restroom cleaning staff, not your typical truck stop as no commercial trucks are allowed. Buc-ees is a bit odd in a number of ways, for example they have a bakery, a computerized menu ordering system make to order food bar, a BBQ grab and go island, as well as other grab and go cold and hot foods, but no dining tables. You can also buy anything from clothing to BBQ grills there, they even have their own house brand line of snacks, candies, etc..

That's what I am looking to do. I usually go I-10 all the way . Thanks for the input

We always plan our trip thru Dallas on a Sunday. Not bad at all. Be passing thru on the 4th of April headed east. Wave if you see me.

Yeloduster, taking 287 then US 82 across to Texarkana and town I-49 to Shrevport is another good option you might want to try, this completely misses the DFW metroplex.

That looks good too. We have friends in Sherman and are usually on our way to Tyler so normally US380 is better for us. Still far enough out of the DFW mess to keep it to an annoyance at most.
