Hello, Good People of Mapland,
I am planning a trip from San Francisco to Dallas around September 1st. I'm driving a Honda Accord (old car but well maintained), and planning on taking 4 to 6 days to complete the one-way trip. I'm going at a leisurely pace because I have a bad back and cannot drive longer than about 6 hours per day. I am also interested in stopping in the Albuquerque area to sightsee, etc. as I am in no rush.
Interested in routes with minimum of four-lane highways whenever possible (two lanes minimum in each direction, and in good condition). I have an AAA card and good cell phone, but I know phone reception is somewhat irregular in desert areas. I'm an older woman traveling alone; I won't be driving at night. I am interested in scenic routes but that is not the priority. This is my first trip driving to Texas; I love to drive and don't want to fly this time. All advice / suggestions are appreciated. Thank you!
