I want to go but I will probably go farther than El Paso the first day. Maybe not though. The absolute best place we could stay for a night is at the La Posada hotel in Winslow, Az. It's incredibly awesome. I would not want to make the drive from DFW to there in one day though. DFW to Albuquerque is long enough.

Camaro21, are you planning on leaving DFW and coming down I-20 towards abilene... or going south on 35 and maybe going into Waco down towards austin and meeting up with the SA group? We might look at getting the Okies to meet up with us in DFW, and then head south and merge with the houston/SA group around austin, or us cut south from waco through federicksberg and all meet up on I 10!

Oh We are going!

I was thinking about driving down to waco and meeting up with the SA/ houston / Waco / and anyone from LA, AL, and so forth that might be coming that way! It only adds to hours to the drive changing it from Going to I-20 from Dallas to El-paso TO I-35 to Austin to I-10 to El-paso.

Missy and I talked about going to dallas the night before then meeting up with anyone in Dallas and then driving either back to abilene on I-20 or going south and meeting up with everyone else! The more the merrier!

FYI, this stretch of highway in the Apache National Forest is supposed to be an excellent scenic drive. We were going to take it on the way to Vegas but didn't have time. 100+ miles of dunes and forest. It sounds epic.

It's way out of the way if coming from El Paso. The only way I can see it being doable is if you're coming in to Az. on 40.

We will pick up the SA crew and meet you all in El Paso.

Would be cool if we could coordinate a gas stop meet up in Van Horn too...

once we get more people signed up we might try to head south from dfw and meet up with you guys earlier instead of coming down I 20, that's a long as boring drive of nothing going that way!

Hmmmm, Here is an idea...

Wednesday evening leave out of Dallas and drive south on 35 into Austin. 3 Hours 30 Minutes. Stay for the night

Thursday Leave out of Austin headed East to Junction Texas on I 10. 2 Hours 40 Minutes. Fuel, stretch, and Meet up with SA, and Houston, and LA/ Alabama groups!

Head out to Fort Stockton 3 hours 10 minutes. Fuel, stretch and eat some lunch!
Head out to El paso Texas 3 hours 50 Minutes. Meet up with El Paso guys and girls! Eat, Drink, and Sleep it off for the night!

Thats 10 hours of driving for the Tursday part of the trip!

Anyone Else have any ohter ideas! ... I'm just brain storming cause I'm bored here watching football! lol

I asked this in anothe thread but, what would people rather do, stay in El paso for the night, or drive the 40 or so minutes north into Las Cruces for the night. I'm not sure about either since it's been forever since I've been to that area of the world! Any insight would be nice!

I know that Viper1Cobra lives in El Paso and would be great to pick the El Paso group up on the way!!

Dallas to El Paso is a good day itself. Back when I was still in the Corps, I drove from Dallas to Palm Springs, CA several times. El Paso was my mid way point.

You know the state is big when you is takes just as long to almost cross your state as it does to cross three other states!
