Hi - I drove straight through from SD to Miami on using I10 recently. I am returning home soon, and I thought of taking I40 for variety instead of the same route I took to get here. I'm wondering if anyone knows how much additional time/milage it would add to my trip. I've looked everywhere and can't find that info.
I won't be doing much sight-seeing so that's not too much of a factor. On the trip up, I drove 400 to 500 miles per day for about 6 hours per day. I didn't hit any traffic and maintained an 80 mph speed. I found driving from Az to the first half of Texas to be extremely boring and isolating. Would I find the same thing on the I40?
Here's extra info - Female driving alone - staying at Fairfield Inn-type places. No real rush to get home, but I don't necessarily like doing touristy things alone. I have cell phone/reliable car etc.
Any advice on the 10 verses 40 would be appreciated.
