Yes, that's why I want to go that way...besides I hate 10 through El Paso.

If you go any further east than my house, expect to slow way down!!!!

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.
Yes, I called it wrong, I meant I-40. Thanks Bama!

Happy Trails, Forrest
Stay away from this fuel stop (Pilot/FJ) west of Albuquerque...after exiting I-40 you have to negotiate a three block detour to come in behind the fuel station on very rough gravel roads. Then there is no cross over to return to I-40, make other arrangements for fuel until the construction is finished. I traveled this 2nd week in Feb '16.

Did the Oregon Coast and WA a few years ago, great trip. Looking at going back to Oregon Coast this summer. Wave hi to my folks who live in Corona as you go by.
