    I'm considering a trip from SF to LA, then LA to visit my parents in Houston.

    Anyone gone LA to Houston?

    Can you share your experience? Route? Tips?

    Thanks!

    The Frunk Is My Suitcase is required reading for the Non-Supercharger charging options he details across the Southwest.

    I haven't done LA to Houston, but I did Indian Wells, CA to Houston in September 2016.

    I went the straight supercharger route:

    Indio, CA
    Quartzsite, AZ
    Buckeye, AZ
    Holbrook, AZ
    Gallup, NM
    Albuquerque, NM (stayed overnight here)
    Santa Rosa, NM
    Tucumcari, NM
    Amarillo, TX
    Shamrock, TX
    Weatherford, OK
    Oklahoma City, OK (stayed overnight here)
    Ardmore, OK
    Denton, TX
    Corsicana, TX
    Huntsville, TX
    Houston, TX


    However, this was before the Childress, TX supercharger was active, so the route can be done this way now in a 90D:

    Quartzsite, AZ
    Buckeye, AZ
    Holbrook, AZ
    Gallup, NM
    Albuquerque, NM
    Santa Rosa, NM
    Tucumcari, NM
    Amarillo, TX
    Childress, TX
    Denton, TX
    Corsicana, TX

    Try www.abetterrouteplanner.com, it's quite sophisticated.
