San Antonio to Big Bend

Which route....?

I-10 West to Fort Stockton and then US 385 South?

or

US 90 West to US 385 South.

Both are the same travel time. US 90 is 46 miles shorter. Longer distance doesn't bother me. It just seems US 90 is more direct (assuming it is an OK road to travel on).

U.S. 90 all the way. More to see, far less traffic. Good road.

This. Just plan your fuel stops.

Take 90. It's a good highway.

From San Antonio it's an easy drive either way. 90 is more isolated, less traffic somewhat scenic 2 lane, but slower, you'll have stretches stuck behind slow drivers. 10 through West Texas is light traffic. Easy to set cruise at 65 and rarely have to touch it, makes for a somewhat relaxing drive for a big rig. We've traveled each route equally.

I just did this 2 weeks ago. I took 10 out to Big Bend and 90 home. Next time, it'll be 90. Good road, nice easy drive.

Thanks!! Good news on US 90. I think I'll just take it.

Planning fuel stops.... yep - not much along 90 in the way of major outlets, but I figure I'll just ante-up and pay what I must.

After traveling I-10 from FL I am ready for a change!

I fueled up in Sanderson. Easy in/out Stripes/Sunoco station on the south side of US90 with truck stop style diesel pumps on the side of the building. The diesel price was high but this was only a few days after the deep freeze. Fuel was difficult to find on those days immediately after the freeze. Hopefully it's gotten a bit better by now.

I have never seen slow drivers on US 90, most of it is 75 mph speed limit so I guess slow is relative

I drove 90. Good drive. I did stop for fuel in Sanderson. And for sure I wasn't slowed down by anyone (maybe the opposite for others slowed by me tho - I always give them room to pass).

Thanks for all the help everyone!

The HEB grocery store in Del Rio is a reasonable fuel and grocery stop. Right at the corner where U.S. 90 goes from N-S to E-W.



Gas islands large enough for 18 wheelers/RV's.


Fuel is higher west of there.
