    Default Safe?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Sorry, but your desire for a "Safe town to stop" is totally misplaced given that you are planning to endanger your children by trying to drive over 1500 miles in two days. In order to cover that much ground safely you need a minimum of three days. Two drivers is simply not that big a help as one can pretty much guarantee that by the end of the second day you will both be exhausted and less attentive and responsive to road and traffic conditions than a drunk driver. The safest route and stops would be to simply follow I-10 all the way and sleep in either Fort Stockton or Van Horn TX on the first night and around Casa Grande AZ on the second night.
