I don't mean to sound picky but I love running interstates 40 20 10. The fuel cost is reasonable and the miles are relatively good.

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

I agree with running those routes. The only part of the country I prefer not to run is the NorthEast. I will go up there as long as I am able to get right back out.

35 in TX is nice. Other than going through and around San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas/Ft Worth, it's a nice, easy, and long drive. Lot of miles to be made on it. Side note: Beware of the major construction on 35W and 35E going through Ft Worth and Dallas respectively. The uneven lanes make it difficult to keep an empty trailer steady in the lane.

10-4...I don't mind running up there as long as I can get an empty and a pre-plan out of there.

Man I love running in Texas. Try taking the 130 toll out of San Antonio to bypass Austin. It brings you back out on 35 just south of Temple TX and makes for a little quicker trip north.

I went through San Antonio on Friday at 0640 running on 410 I think it is. Got back to 35 in 25m. I never once dropped below 55mph. I don't know if I was lucky or what, but I expected to be slowed down a Lot more than that.

Sure enough though, Austin was jammed up, then the construction in Ft Worth. I knew the day started too easy haha!

My playground tends to be 20, 24, 40, 80, 90, 94, 75, 65, 57, 41, and 39. LoL. Pretty much a diagonal line from GA thru ND.

I enjoy running where I do. I have grown comfortable with the states I am in the most. ND, MN, WI, IA, IL, IN, OH, KY, TN, AL, & GA.

Iike 80 all the way. Its what I've run the most. But especially like the service plazas in Ohio and PA. Easy off and on. And always plenty of parking in the central/midwest. Haven't run through NM or AZ or the northwest yet. Pretty much don't mind anywhere except construction. Agree about Dallas/ Fort Worth it's got to be the worst I've seen so far anywhere. Tipping side to side and zigging one way and then the other. Yikes!
