I-10 to Phoenix, then Wickenburg, Kingman, Hoover Dam, Henderson - straight into Las Vegas.

Thanks to all...looks like I'll try I-10 most of the way out...and take the alternates back when it is warmer.

Most direct way to get on 10 is to run 20 out of Atlanta. It merges with 10 in West Texas.

Just plan on a full day to get across LA due to the rough interstate and not being able to go over about 35-40 mph without tearing up the truck or trailer.

I would skip I-10 and stick to I-20 across the South. Roads will be fine and as mentioned they will merge in West Texas. I-10 dips down too far South for making good time. If sightseeing then it is fine.

Guess there's no good way around that washboard eh Coot? Will allow extra time.. thanks.
Rhozeta and RKR...thanks...but I think I'm gonna skip 20 even though it is more direct & faster as I have seen what Dalas/Ft.Worth can be like in the winter and the extra time for the southern route seems worth it to me.
Thanks again to all.

Just a reminder for your return trip. Spring is tornado season in Iowa, Kansas etc. I learned the hard way on a trip to California in April a few years ago. No tornadoes, but torrential rains, wind, thunder/lightning etc. So much water on I-40 that you couldn't drive faster than about 40 mph

I've run into snow on I-10 out in the West Texas mountains in January....IMHO, best bet is to have alternate routes at the ready when traveling during the winter months and look at the weather five days out along your routes as you go. Five day forecasts seem to be fairly accurate and the five day window allow plenty of time to get to an alternate route...
