    As someone who has driven across Texas, the romance of driving across West Texas and the reality of driving are two different things. It will be a great trade for a bonus Vegas trip :tearsofjoy: :tearsofjoy:.

    Out of curiosity I Google mapped Houston to Cosmo.

    It really depends on where you live in town as they take the same amount of time! But the non-toll I-40 route is a bit longer.

    Good luck Steph! Hope to see a bunch of big wins!

    My concern with the i10 route is that since it gets really close to the border with Mexico there will sometimes be customs checks/border patrol checks. That could slow things down.

    We've also driven across Nebraska before... it's a toss up as to which is more mind-numbing LOL!

    It's an experience, and anyone who wants to do it, I say go for it. Just plan on lots of leg stretching stops

    I saw a YouTube video on the world’s largest convenience store, think it was a Buc-ee’s somewhere in the middle of Texas, I’d try to take the route that goes through this town and spend a few hours there.

    Yeah, that one is in New Braunfels, outside of San Antonio. Never been to that one myself, but I have been to quite a few around the state. They are all pretty huge! (Think 20+ stalls in each restroom). They are always super crowded though, so right now it's a place I'd rather avoid.

    If Buc-ee's had VP machines I might never make back to Vegas.

    They have those along I 8 in S. California. As long as the dog doesn’t jump up and down, you’ll be fine.

    Stick with the crunch blizzard from DQ...the best. (The crunch topping they dip cones in, not Nestlé Crunch, fyi)

    There are no checkpoints heading west on i10 that I know of. I live in El Paso and use to drive back to civilization on the other side of Texas a few times a year. You do have to stop once heading East back to San Antonio, but the lanes are split between passenger and commercial vehicles. Takes less than 5 mins to get through.

    Have a safe trip either way.
