I was looking at possible advice on a trip from Los Angeles to Tulsa, OK in mid-late October (possibly the 17th through 21st).
A buddy and I are making a quick trip; quick because neither can afford to take more than a week off work and flying isn't an option. We have to be in the Tulsa area on the 19 -- just for a single day -- and thought it would take us 2 days to get there and 2 days to come back if we only stop for food, restroom breaks, and somewhere to rest at night. Google Maps is suggest three routes:
1) I-10 to the I-40.
2) I-40 all the way through.
3) I-40 to the US-54.
One of us -- okay, it's me -- is a very anxious driver (aftermath of a bad car accident) and since we're splitting driving duties, we were wondering which route(s) would be best taking the anxiety (and some possible motion sickness) into consideration. We want to avoid as much craziness (winding roads, mountains, etc.) as possible. The traffic isn't so much an issue for us since we're used to sitting in it on a regular basis. We're not so much into the side trips -- we just want to get point A to point B and back to point A as safely as possible. Also, any tips on what to expect during that time of year, weather-wise?
Thanks in advance!
