Need help to decide . I am helping to move a relative and need advice to plan the trip. Bing maps has given two routes ;
Route 1 approx. 2500 miles ) Due south on the I-5 to LA then east on I-10 East passing through Arizona and New Mexico before getting into Texas
Route 2 approx.. 2200 miles , more interesting but a lot more grades )I-90 East,US-97 South,I-84E and dropping down taking in Idaho, Utah, New Mexico to Texas .
Please advise on road and weather which would be better. The routing around LA, ( if we went in that direction )
The truck he has rented is from Penske Truck Rental is 26 ft. and it is slow as we tested it up hills . Empy the thing peaks @ 45 Mph up hill and full out on the flat 55 MPH. It doesn't look like we will be getting any speeding tickets here
