We are moving to Wash DC/Northern VA and we are taking the trip out in the car with the dogs! I was wondering what is the best way to go...I-80 or I-70? I want the highway that is most traveled because I am afraid to be out in the middle of nowhere (which I will be I know). Is there more little towns along I-80 through Wyoming than there is after you leave Denver on I-70? On my map it looks really bare out after Denver through to Kansas. It looks like Kansas is tho a little more populated than Nebraska.

I am also worried about cell phone coverage through either Utah-Colorado-Kansas vs. Utah-Wyoming-Nebraska. Would you have better coverage on 1 interstate versus the other?
