In October, I will be driving from Miami FL to San Francisco CA. I am taking I-10 as far as it till take me. My question is: I am concerned that there might be stretches from San Antono to El Paso that are desolate. I would like any info anyone has about that stretch. Are there long stretches where I won't see any towns for 75 - 100 miles? Is there cell service that entire way (AT&T)? And, what should I expect? Any decent hotels?
Also from El Paso to Tucson AZ - is that well-travelled or desolate? I just don't want to get stuck in areas where there is nothing around for miles. Thanks to anyone who answers!
