  1. Default From Malibu, CA to Oklahoma and then on to KCMO

    Hi, we'll be heading from Los Angeles, CA to Oklahoma and then onward to Kansas City in about one week.

    The winter has been light, so far in the midwest. Not sure what the weather will hold over the next couple weeks.

    We're not too concerned with sight-seeing so will drive as much as we can per day to limit the length of drive.

    Would appreciate suggestions regarding route and any advise as far as concerns we should be aware of and any good/affordable hotel options.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Assuming when you say "Oklahoma" you mean "Oklahoma City," you've really got only 1 logical route: I-40 the whole way.

    From LA, you're looking at a 2.5 day drive, with Holbrook, AZ and Amarillo, TX being the best places to plan to stop - assuming you see good weather.

    From OKC to KC, it's an easy 1 day drive. I-35 or I-44 to I-49, depending upon where in KC you're heading.

    Holbrook has a very good Motel 6 - probably the nicest I've ever stayed in and it's big, over 100 rooms and the room rate was very reasonable. When I stayed there I got a 10% discount at Denny's with the room key, it's right across the parking lot. Amarillo has a wide selection of hotels in all budget ranges. If you like steak I can highly recommend the Big Texan, and their motel is decent too.

    Be aware that I-35 from OKC to Emporia, KS, is toll road.
