Hello! I am moving from LA to Indianapolis at the end of July and am driving my Ford Escape (packed to the brim with all of my belongings) out there.
Mapquest has me going via I-40 for the bulk of the trip through AZ, NM, TX and OK (then to 44 up to 70) for a total of about 2060 miles. I was also considering taking 15 up through las vegas and then hitting I-70 and taking that all the way to Indy. That would total about 2090 miles.
Any suggestions on what is the best route? Easiest on the car, less boring, etc. I figure in the dead of summer going I-40 might be hot as all get out, but then again I figure I-70 is pretty mountainous going through Colorado.
Any tips are welcome, this is my first time driving across the country and I am going solo and on a bit of a time crunch, so I am a bit nervous.
