    I'll be leaving sometime this evening.

    Scheduled stops are El Paso and Abilene, TX. It's 8 hours of driving to those two stops, but I think it'll take me a little longer while towing. My plans are to spend most of my driving time at night, but we'll see how that works out.

    Here's a pic of the route.

    Wave to the humongous Mexican flag as you pass through El Paso.

    You'll be within yards (approx. 100) of the International Border.

    Drive safe and wear your seatbelts properly (ahem) :D !

    Drivin' the SW many times and it would be much faster, towing or not, to head to Flagstaff and take I-40 east to OKC then up I-35. I've done I-40 and I-10 from Tulsa,OK to So Cal many times and I-40 is much faster.

    I think I'm going to stick with my current plan versus a change at the last minute. I've got some short gears in my truck, and going uphill sucks without a load.

    When you have loaded semi's passing you and you're not towing... I think it's still best to go around the mountains.

    Ah, that's some scenic country from about Pecos, TX to Oklahoma City. That is if you like flat ground, no trees, and dirt.

    Say Hi to Odessa, TX for me on the way through there. I spent 32 years there one night...oh wait, it was 32 whole years.

    I do miss Texas though.
