Coming into Austin from the east, take hwy 71. Then it's a straight shot to hwy290 west. After Fredricksburg, I'd head south to hwy 90 toward Langtry, Marfa, and Alpine. Then BBNP. Langtry has a boondock at the Judge Roy Bean museum. Marfa has the Marfa Yacht Club, an Airstream only CG, and Alpine has Sul Ross State U. When you get to El Paso, take hwy 375 north over the Franklin Mtns. Great views, no downtown on Transmountain hwy.

Two years ago, we tried Death Valley in early May. Heat was already over 100. Only campground with electricity was closed.

We just made a trip that had us staying in Galveston, Corpus Christi, and South Padre Island. In South Padre, we ventured down to the border and saw nothing, no checkpoints, nothing that was in any way disturbing.

Let me know when you’re in FB. Safe travels and looks like you have a good plan.

Thanks. Planning on LBJ ranch. This trip not till Spring 2022. I’m trying to figure out the best month to go through Texas without messing with my other plans.

Any route you take is going to put you near Abilene, which means you will be near the small town of Buffalo Gap, home to the renowned Perini Ranch Steakhouse.
You will regret missing this gem, as it is quite possibly the best steakhouse in all of Texas, which I know is a bold statement.
