So for those of you that go I-10, where do you get off? Do you go all the way to Fort Stockton?Most times I'm leaving late in the afternoon and from Central Texas (Temple), I take US190 straight through until it hits I-10 between Ozona and Bakersfield and go on to Ft. Stockton to spend the night. I can get to Ft. Stockton in just under 6 hours and then get up early the next morning and go on into the park. But I've been looking at the map trying to figure out a way straight into the park and still being able to get there at a decent time (before midnight) when leaving late afternoon. So what is the quickest way to get into the park from I-10Ronnie
Let me know when you figure out the quickest way going the 190 route. This last time I ran all the way to Irann and picked up I-10 there. If it's daylight, I'd rather run 190 all the way instead of cutting south to pick up I-10. I did a quick mental calculation on cutting south from 190 down to I-10 @ Menard and figured the "cost" of going down that 2 lane heavily traveled road wouldn't be worth it.
(less likely to hit an deer or something) to cut down to I-10 at Eldarado.I guess what I'm trying to figure out is after getting to I-10, which is the quickest way...go on to Ft. Stockton or cut across somewhere to hit 90.Ronnie
I-10 to Fort Stockton is the fastest. Its a much easier drive then Hwy 90. Hwy 90 is scenic and a good drive in daylight. Night driving on 90 is no fun because of the deer and many curves. When you get past Sanderson on Hwy 90 the night sky is incredible. I like like to stop and stargaze while I "pay the water bill".
So for those of you that go I-10, where do you get off? Do you go all the way to Fort Stockton?
