Gardner, Tom Sawyer is nice.
We have stayed at the Pyramid Bass Pro parking lot many times. Not difficult to find,safe with roving security all night and there is a restaurant. Very few places to spend the night between Memphis and Little Rock. Avoid Forrest City area, not safe. Safe travels.

Marv, Paul,
Thanks for the Tom Sawyer tip. We are traveling on the cheap, so Walmarts and the like are our first choice. The Bass Pro Shop looks good, and safe from Pauls comments.

At Bass Pro Shop in Memphis. Rt 40 is overhead along with 4 other flyovers. Much like constant thunder, and then there is the train complete with crossing whistle that just went past. Too late to move on so we will don the ear plugs and tough it out

Looking at the weather you may want to stay high on interstate 40 maybe even until you get to Albuquerque. But if the weather looks bad up north and you can always drop down in Texas to interstate 10.
I’ll try to keep an eye it for you.
I know the weather patterns reasonably well

It can get pretty cold in Albuquerque! We will see. Probably hang out a day here and hope the rain clears up.

I agree it can get very cold in Albuquerque book you can get ice storms this time of year down in Texas. In my book cold is better than ice. That is what I was going to watch out for. Holding up for a day is the correct thing to do. With luck you should be able to run straight through. The weather to watch for starts in the Baja golf. Sometimes it starts up through Tucson another times in Texas.

I thought it would be a good idea to stay the night in a grain elevator's lot near Kearny, NE once. It was horrible, a train every 5 minutes blowing for the only grade crossing for 5 miles either way. And I like trains lol.

What's going on around Dallas? UPS has a bunch of my packages stuck down there due to weather?

I use this app when we are on the road pretty decent info.

https://www.rvparky.com

Albuquerque just had two weeks of pretty cold(below freezing) weather, a few single digits at night but pretty nice winter for this Chicago boy. I think that’s it for winter should be 40’s in the day and 25-32 night time and that low is usually just a few hours before sunrise then that sun warms things up fast. Lots of free places to dump in Albuquerque and some good places to overnight, if your heading south my choice would be Isleta Casino, big truck/rv lot just be sure your leveling jacks work because it has a wicked pitch. They have roaming security in the lots, very nice people, decent food choices if you want. If you get south of Socorro, you’ll probably be out of the cold. Dancing eagle I think is a good stop west of Alburquerque on i40 with a real inexpensive rv park. If you have a National Park pass the Army Corp of engineers campgrounds are half price.
