Travel advise

I need to go from Chicago to Flagstaff Arizona. I'll be Rving it down there and have traveled the I-80 to I-35 to I-40 to I-17. The elevations are are pretty good untill the Arizona border. Does anyone know about the elvations for route I-55 to I-35 to I-44 to I-10 to I-17? Are they Good?

I-10 is pretty easy going all the way from Dallas to Tucson, but then you get the hard grades from Tucson to Flag. It's fine if you're not overloaded or underpowered, but some of the climbs are long.

I-17 from PHX to Flagstaff is where the long pulling hills are.

No probs at all going Tucson to Phoenix - just the traffic once you get to PHX. Personally I'ld stick with I-40 - grades in AZ are no worse (and possibly better) than New Mexico. Just my opinion.

(I-10 doesn't run thru Dallas, Greenliner - you must be thinking "Dallas, I-20 to I-10 to Tucson)

personally, if I was headed that way I'd stick to I-40 - only grade is off the desert floor up to Flagstaff (and NOT go thru tucson/phoenix - horrible traffic and sometimes hellacious winds).....Bill

Yup, it's old age - I've driven it enough times maybe the boredom of the route has something to do with it!!!
