I am relocating to Seattle in a few weeks and will be driving. I know the OK-KS route is the most boring and would prefer to go through Amarillo-NM, etc but what is the safest way (good roads, not too isolated, etc)? Also, being from the flatlands, I don't want any treacherous mountain driving either.
If I go through the OK-KS way, which towns are best for stopping for the night if I drive about 8 hours per day? I will have my dog with me so there will be stops.
