US 70 west

We’re looking at US 70 west from I30 near Little Rock. We’re not from around here, so any ideas on routes from Little Rock west would be helpful. We will eventually make our way to California. Thank you all!

There are a ton of routes to get west. If you're driving now, in winter, head directly south and take I-10 across.

What is your destination? What do you want to see along the way? How much time do you have?

Would something like this - https://binged.it/2FbNxpS - work - gets you into the Middle of Colorado.

Just need more info to really help much more.

Best of Luck,

If you are talking about travel now, beside the probability of snow, most RV parks along I70 are closed this time of year. I would follow Busskipper's advice.

That the route I take between family in Los Vegas and Shreveport this time of year. I give to family the same advice who then ignore it. The time they save with the shorter route they lose hold up someplace waiting for the weather to clear.

In the MH along I-10 we take our time and stay at lower elevations when bad weather hits.

Two favorite spots are Carlsbad Caverns and White Sands NM.

Not i-70

Thanks folks, but I’m not talking about I70, US Route 70 in Arkansas then westbound. We are currently in Arkansas and will leave Little Rock on Thursday. I’d prefer to avoid interstates, as we are in no hurry. We are eventually headed for CA, just east of Los Angeles. We’re just looking for a good road to meander across OK, TX, NM, and AZ, and any combination thereof. With the feds shut down, our stops will have to be a bit more imaginative. LOL Thanks again

Highway 70 in Arkansas is o.k. but you will still need to work your way south more once you get into Texas to continue west using I-10. Once you're on 70 above Dallas you could pick up 277 to 180 west taking you to Carlsbad, New Mexico. (The cave tour will probably be shut down due to the gov't) Continue west on 62/180 toward El Paso where you can pick up I-10. Brantley Lake State Park is near Carlsbad. It will probably be cold in that area so electric might be helpful.

This might help you with camping in Texas: https://ftp.dot.state.tx.us/pub/txdo...ampgrounds.pdf

Once you get in the ElPaso area your best choices to stop for the night would be Las Cruces, NM, Deming, NM, Benson, AZ.

Have a good trip!

I like to avoid the interstate too. The first winter after retiring we took NM-152.

This is what I wrote at the time, "The beast climbed at 15 mph in 1st gear."

So at least take I-10 from Las Cruses to Lordsburg.
