Hi all. Out of Virginia & now in Austin. Subaru needs some as yet unspecified work When we leave I'm wondering which of 3 routes to take to Study Butte.1) the Mapquest (and probably fastest) route: 290W to I10 to Ft. Stockton & then 385 to SB2) 290W to I10 to Junction then 377 SW then 277 S then 90W to 385 to SB3) I35S to SA beltway (410) to 90W to 385 to SBMy concerns / goals are...a) get to SB by 6:30pm at latest (not critical, but daylight is a good thing)b) leave Austin before weekday morning rush hour coagulatesc) if going thru SA, don't hit whatever their AM rush hour isd) the fewer speed traps the bettere) new or pretty scenery would be nicef) there will be no stops except for gas etcWe've always taken route #1 as described above; a change would be really nice, but not if it takes a lot longer. I can see us leaving by 6:30am - 7am at the earliest, and I'd really like to get to SB before dark. FYI we'll be leaving on a weekday.Thoughts?
Sounds like you're giving yourself 12 hours to get there. If it were me? Haul it to Acuna for a taco tray and margarita at Ma Crosby's and then take my time on 90...you'll get there well before dark. But with no stops you'll make it sooner than you think.
just throwing in my two cents here without over complicating things but.....90 is an awesome road to take and my preferred converyor belt...however, from Austin? Not worth dorking around with....stay with 1 and just get to the goods.
