Southwest FocusFest Caravan Route Poll

Ok the Texas guys would like us to join them to form a larger caravan. Its only an extra 120 miles so I don't have any issues. Would like everyone's input as to which route you guys prefer. Of course we can take the shorter route back home.

Route A:
(1,674 mi – about 1 day 1 hour)


Route B:
(1,791 mi – about 1 day 3 hours)

haha, I think they are switched. I haven't made up my mind yet which route I'm taking, do you overnight stops planned yet? How many days are you planning on the TX route taking?

A is a more scenic route but taking the route that pics up the most cars for the caravan would be more fun. So I would pic B if I were going, pic up the Texas groups.

Route B thru Texas is a 80mph zone. I like it very few cops on I-20 also, but you my wanna rethink driving straight thru Dallas.

Something work adding, there is some REALLY nice country side that we will be driving through in Arkansas, with some nice twisty roads. I am actually helping my my move to AR next weekend and I am going to try and take the twisty route home so I can how the roads and traffic are.

I just adjusted my drive home in Google Maps, I may not be making that trip since. It will add 200 miles and 3 hours to my trip, which means that I would be pushing it to get home in one day. I'll have to run the numbers.
