If you're thinking about US 40 as opposed to Interstate 40, you're correct that much of it isn't all that great, and in some cases no longer exists.

US 40 has been largely replaced by Interstate 70 from Maryland through PA, OH (Columbus), IN (Indianapolis), IL (Effingham), MO (St. Louis to KC), KS, CO (Denver) and beyond. In some areas the old US 40 runs roughly parallel to I-70, in some parts they run together.

If you go any further east than my house, expect to slow way down!!!!
HMMMMM! What? Does Las Vegas know that it is now located along I-40?

From the Interstate Guide website -
Routing

Interstate 40 is a major east-west freeway, spanning eight states on its cross-country voyage. Starting in Barstow, California, the freeway generally follows the Historic U.S. 66 alignment.......
Interstate 40 terminates just shy of U.S. 17 in Wilmington, terminating along with four U.S. routes (74, 76, 117, and 421) in the vicinity of that city.

Yes, they moved it while I was typing that. Barstow and Las Vegas have merged. It was on all the news. Didn't you see it?

(OK, my bad......it runs CLOSE to Las Vegas!!)

I was a math major. Flunked Geography.

Well, I guess in the middle of a desert 112 miles could be considered close. Just kidding.

Traveling Route 66. It starts in Chicago and ends in Santa Monica Califorina. Traveled it many times. It does follow I-40 . Thru Oklahoma it was a toll road. It's called Will Rogers Turnpike.

I've been on I-40 from Amarillo all the way to California on a motorcycle....So I know in an RV or towing will be fine.

Temecula, to visit friends and old neighbors. It's where we left from last June, we're renting our house out. Then we start heading north towards WA.
