I will be moving from Orange County CA to Austin TX this Wednesday and I desperately need your help! There are two simple routes I can take. I can take Interstate 10 most of the way, or I could take Interstate 5 South to Interstate 8 and then catch Interstate 10 when I get South of Phoenix.
From what Google tells me, it takes about the same amount of time to get to Austin either way. But what I really want to know is WHAT ROUTE WOULD YOU TAKE AND WHY? My concerns are things like traffic, road conditions, terrain, gas, food, lodging, safety, and of course, HAVING A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!
I appreciate any help I may find on this forum, for this my first post:) Thank you.
