    I-40 through New Mexico has a lot of construction. Some of it is actually listed on SafeTravelUSA, other bits are not. Make sure you plan accordingly, as these construction...

    Interstate highways are usually the last highways to close in bad weather, and one of the first to get serviced by snow-removers, de-icers, etc. That is because our supply chain relies on the ability...

    My guess, BillyGr, is either an old Kresge's, Woolworth, or McCrory's. My family didn't know, they've only been there 7 or so years, and our server was too young to remember any of those stores.

    I'm going to agree with GLC's suggestions for possible overnight stops. Van Horn, Weatherford, and Jackson all have choices for hotels. We don't usually recommend specific hotels, and one reason is...

    Don't ever try to find a Dollar General in southern California. It didn't exist out there. Instead, we had Dollar Tree, 99.9c Only, and Big Lots.

    I've noticed that signs for roads that run concurrently are diminishing, perhaps weaning drivers off the US and state highways in favor of interstates. Perhaps that is a matter of funding, maybe not....
