Thought I'd update this thread... We drove I-44 through Lawton to Wichita Falls, then took Hwy 277/US 83 all the way to Abilene. I guess we came in on the west side of Abilene, as there wasn't much town once we got on I-20. Much of the way on 277/83 was divided road that bypassed a lot of the smaller towns. Once we hit I-20, it was pretty much smooth sailing to Monahans, then south in Hwy 18. Not much in the way of scenery once we passed the Wichita Mtns near Lawton... the drive south from Ft. Stockton got better the further south we went. Even with several rest stops, lunch, and a stop at the Wal-Mart in Sweetwater, TX for last minute supplies (i.e. 6 point Bud Light and Mr Pibb... haha), the entire trip took about 11 hours. Drove posted speed limit the entire way.
