    Hammer says 35 to 10,up 285 to I 40.Construction in San Antonio.The 285 section goes through the Permian,a lot of oilfield trucks on the road.Im up in there daily,drive careful.A lot of dummies in the area.After you get past the 285/305 intersection north of Pecos its usaully easier driving.

    If you ever do this again, you can self report and ask it to be moved.
    Same if a double post. Just self report and the admins will take care of it.

    I don't like either of those routes. Most devices only look at the speed limits and average speeds of traffic when calculating. Running from Laredo, I always found that taking US90 through to Van Horn would be faster at 65 mph than taking 35 to 10 to Van Horn or any of the alternatives. Google itself thinks the route is 6 minutes slower, but when you can't go 75-80 on I-10, the time advantage is lost.

    So US 90 to I 10 to US 60 / US 93 coming out of PHX to US 95 out of Vegas. Then US 50 and 50A from Fallon to Fernley.

    Be aware between Vegas and Fernley there are two or three spots with construction. 20-30+- minute delays
