I'm hoping to get some feedback for the best way to make this drive in a few weeks. I have 3 days to make the drive, leaving from College Station, TX (about 90 miles NE of Houston) and heading to Elko, NV.
AAA said to go up I-35 to I-135 to I-70 to I-25 to I-80 - basically all interstate... straight north and then west.
Other sources suggest US-287 to I-80, I-40 to US-491 heading up to SLC then over I-80, or a few other variations.
I will be driving by myself and am not too familiar with this part of the country.
Any suggestions for routes or nightly stopping points would be greatly appreciated!
