    Go see Big Bend National Park, and then for serenity, go on US-90 east towards Del Rio along the Rio Grande. Very nice drive. Then, if you want, cut up northeast from San Antonio to Austin.

    Don't forget, without insurance, you will need/want to purchase insurance through the rental agency. That can total $20+ a day as well. Unless you want to pay the bill for any damage (including...

    Broadus has a wayside (just picnic tables, etc) and a weigh station for trucks (although I think cars are allowed there as well to park, I believe it's listed as a 'rest area' on signs).

    First, to get this out of the way, DO NOT sleep at a rest area, picnic area, wayside, etc. If you do decide to sleep in your car, choose a well-lit truck stop with a large parking lot, away from town...

    CA 58 is a great road. I've driven it many times (as well as CA-14, CA-138, etc). From Bakersfield to Barstow (i.e., I-15/I-40), it's almost to freeway standards. There's just a few segments that...

    If you have 7-10 days for this, and the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame is your destination, I suggest avoiding the interstates. You'll see a lot more.

    Well, checking out your route, I have to question your choice from Denver to Salt Lake City.

    I-25 to I-80 isn't the most scenic of routes. I've driven through Wyoming many times, and although I...

    I-80/I-15 is a good route. Just be sure about conditions going down Sherman (between Laramie and Cheyenne around MM 316-330), and near Elk Mountain (from MM 245-267).

    Theodore Roosevelt N.P. is a nice park. A little 'mellower' of a badland than the Badlands N.P. in South Dakota. Plus, a lot less frequented (in my eyes).
