Terry,
     Our lives are rather chaotic, when my wife told me that she got  
us a motel in Baton Rouge, I posted knowing that there probably was  
not enough time to get together.  We did stumble on a great Italian  
restaurant near the LSU exit about a block south of I-10, I don't  
remember the name.
      Yesterday I drove back from near San Antonio, a little over 930  
miles, in twelve hours and fifteen minutes including two stops to  
take the two dogs for a short walk, give them food and water, get  
gas, go to the bathroom and get a butterfinger and a coke.  Carol  
will fly back Friday.
     Maybe next trip.
       Jim

And that average speed didn't factor in any time for the two pit stops:-)
Not to meniton Jim said "a little over 930 miles", how much over unknown...

O.K., I traveled (I believe it was) that highway when I moved back to 
Boston from Tucson. THAT speed would mean everyone else (especially 
those trucks that seemed as though they were 3 football fields long) 
would leave you in the dust.

My personal driving experiences indicate the wildest truck drivers
inhabit the interstate between Memphis, TN and Little Rock, AR.  The
wildest overall drivers are (were?) in New Orleans, LA and the fastest
dense traffic I recall ever being in  was in Hot-Lanta.

Well, I just will thank God that I'll never drive through those places 
(although we did take that Memphis/Little Rock route getting TO Tucson 
(it was a snails pace due to road construction) - if they are wilder 
than drivers in Texas and Louisiana!!

My experiences on that Arkansas stretch of road mostly have involved
my pulling a travel trailer, so it amplifies the fear factor due to
marauding trucks.
Once during that UGLY construction period I exited to I-55 North in
West Memphis onto a ramp constricted by construction to the point that
I had about a foot of total side clearance.  I was sure something was
going to scrape but thankfully it did not!
