Any advice is most definitely appreciated!!!
My wife, the dog, and I are traveling from the SF area to Austin, too, but are going to have closer to *4* days to make it happen.
We're leaving on the afternoon/evening of August 17th and want to arrive in Austin no later than the 21st, before it gets too late in the evening.
A few questions:
Our AAA person had us taking 40 to Oklahoma City and catching 35. Does that make sense?
We are considering taking 25 south from 40, but I saw that we have fans of 285 on this post. Is 285 a major enough road to travel at-speed? Any 25 fans/detractors?
The dog does add a new wrinkle, so every case, we're absolutely interested in pet-friendly hotels (and activities) to hit on the way.
Thanks so much in advance!
