That's why I love Texas. Coming back in March and can't wait. It's just different down there.

Depending on where you're headed - that nothing for the next 22 miles sign is very misleading. Some places are much farther apart - like Midland/Odessa to El Paso or Van Horn.

Longest, most grueling drive I ever made was while my son was racing. Drove from the LA/TX state line (I-20) to Albuquerque, NM (I-40). I swear it seemed we were at a 5* grade the entire time across TX. Nothing to see but tumbleweeds. Finally gave up around 4 AM, checked in to a hotel and asked for a wake up call in 3 hours.

Nope, this Mom traveling with her teenage son did not stop to sleep at a rest area, not even back then, and not even while exercising her 2A.

I will venture to say that once you reached DFW the scenery in East Texas was much better sans tumbleweeds.

Not sure where you got the 5% grade from - it's pretty flat from Abilene west to the NM/TX line on I20.

I know it's supposed to be flat, but the mile after mile after mile (and miles seem longer in TX) it "seemed" like it was a slight grade constantly.

And I was dog tired by then.

I used to live in Austin and drive to Phoenix a couple times a year. I set my cruse at 100 mph going thru west Tx. I could go for hours and never move the steering wheel more than an inch. Love Tx.

Texas - 640,000 square miles of absolute miracle. ...beautiful in its every regard. The most fascinating, wonderful, generous and majestic place on earth.
