I will translate for those who may not know South Texas. Moody's gas mileage drop was due to headwinds, as the land is flat as a pancake between San Antonio & Brownsville.

Headwinds affect my class "b" by 2-3 MPG. Otherwise mountains, elevation, etc. seem to have little or no effect.

If you do take I10, consider stopping at Fredericksburg, TX, north of San Antonio. Besides the wineries mentioned, it is home to the National Museum of the Pacific War, and the boyhood home of Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz. The museum is a world-class experience...you could easily spend an entire day there.

Ditto that suggestion...Nimitz Museum is deceiving in size- there are a few buildings and actually another site down the road, but the main site in town is filled with war memorabilia including audio descriptions at each display...easily can spend a day there...I spent 4 hours and was never bored... But, Fredricksburg offers so much more than a museum...the food and shopping for first timers is excellent...German heritage mixed with Texas Hill Country hospitality and local wines= a great Texas Hill Country experience for a couple days and nights...Wild flowers and Blue Bonnets starting to pop up...

Travel Texas EXTENSIVELY

10 & 20 are both suitable. Have taken the 27 FC down both of them now numerous times. Not a problem. As with all major metropolitan areas, timing and traffic are everything. Time is right, and no big deal. Both offer cool scenery. That considered, I-10 (to us) west of SA, is the best and most scenic you can get before NM. I-20 is oil, oil, oil, gas......lol. Have also taken the AS down 10 and 20 in LA, and the road is better on 10 than 20. 20 is in bad shape around Shreveport. Again, time your major cities. and 84 as one person wrote is nice, but only if you have time and like to stop alot. Alot of small towns. Have taken literally every road in my line of work all over the South. Timing. Plan it.
