How to get to Arizona

For those that are well traveled. This fall I want to go from Atlanta to Carlsbad Cavern then on to Arizona. Do I go by way of I40, I20, or I10. Which one would allow me to see the best of America without traveling to far off from the major highway. Any ideas.

A husband is the biggest baby you will have and take the most adult supervision.

“Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel across the country from coast to coast without seeing anything.”
Charles Kuralt

I believe he was very accurate...We have towed between 40,000 and 45,000 miles and we TRY to avoid the interstate.

But if you really have to make miles and are on I-20 thru central MS, give us a shout and we might suggest some overnight spots.

Take a read at this thread - I-20 road condition East from DFW. I don't know about I-40 east of Little Rock. The worst stretch we saw was US-67/167 northeast of Little Rock -- rhythmic oscillations from pavement sagging away from the seams -- an upside-down equivalent to old wooden ships getting hogbacked if you ask me. I-30 southwest of Little Rock has some of the same conditions -- it gets much better as you near Texas. We slowed down to 50 mph to make some progress but I still found some rivets popped inside after that trip. Right hand lanes sure get pounded by semi trucks and it is hard to cruise much in the center lane in this busy state.

We drove a couple hours on the east-to-west US-60 in southern Missouri -- a dream by comparison! That's north of your route and would need broader info from other readers. Post back here after your trip and let us know the good and bad of the route you used. That is helpful!
