Albuquerque, New Mexico to Anderson, Indiana

I like the road trips that are more or less diagonal across the country, but this one has some pretty well worn interstate routes to follow. The drive will cover 1326 miles, which we will spend 2 long days accomplishing. All those interstates mean we can travel at oer 68mph, and our first day will conclude after 545 miles, leaving plenty of meat on the bone for Wednesday.

DAY ONE (Tuesday)

Albuquerque, New Mexico

The day will begin beautifully in the Land of Enchantment, and we will head east through New Mexico, encountering little by way of significant weather along the way. Storms rumbling now will have a tough time petering out through the morning over west Texas, but as we shift into the Panhandle, things will finally begin winding down. This is because the dry line will start becoming active in eastern New Mexico. It looks like we will thread the needle! It should be hot and stuffy, but dry in Oklahoma City as we arrive for the night.

DAY TWO (Wednesday)
Wednesday looks even better, which is great, given the long drive we have ahead of us. We’re going to cover 4 states, and may not see a cloud (though maybe to start the day would be our best chance.) Temperatures will be getting cooler as we go, but make no mistake – pack your sunscreen and plan on finding a pool.

Anderson, Indiana
