Quote from: "Hoodoo"Welcome Hollidaydriver, I am sure there are other points of interest as well but those immediately came to mind.Hoodoo10-4 to those Hoodoo.Be sure and stop at the Pecos River Bridge.Of course, another advantage of I-10 over Hwy90 is the lack of DHS CBB checkpoint Charlie stations. If I recall correctly, you'd stop for 2? of them. 385 leaving BIBE, going north on 277 out of Del Rio. I can't remember if the one West of Del Rio is for East or West bound traffic. Never the mind, I'd take Hwy90.
After a 2-day Big Bend visit, we are leaving for San Antonio with a night stop in Sonara.On the forum the i-10 seems the fastest way driving to Sonora, but is the 90 and up the 277 not worth driving?Strange Question maybe, but i'm from Europe and are speed limits in Texas (which is a Big State) often checked by the police as in Belgium? Meaning, we have rather strickt speed limits and the fines are heavy!Thanks
Ok. :idea: Is it a full check of the car or only the persons?Hollidaydriver
Est. driving time by gps and road maps from the park to Sonora, by the I-10 are about 6 hours drive?Is that close to reality and what about the more scenic route by the hwy 90 (which I prefer)?
Time at the checkpoint should be about 30 seconds
When on I-10 East of San Antonio, be sure and stop and Buckees for some great beef Jerky and the cleanest public restrooms I've ever seen. Great BBQ place in Junction too on the north side of I-10, don't recall the name - I'll ping Randelll...
Coopers BBQ is the place in Junction.
