Which way should I go to Austin?


Excuse me while I scribble some words down here late into the night. I have bags to pack and a route to finalize. I'm headed back on the road again.

This time I'm going to Austin, Texas. It'll be my first time in Austin. I have no prepared agenda except to meet my friend Jess who is flying down from Tulsa armed with several cameras. There's plenty to do. We're going the weekend of the Austin Couch Crash, a series of events with people in the Couchsurfing community. I'm hoping to check out the nightlife, including Rainey Street and Sixth Street, and something called Eeyore's Birthday. Follow my weekend through Instagram (@follow_eric).

But before I can do any of that, I need to do two things. One, I need to pack. Two, I need to choose a route.

I can drive from Albuquerque to Austin in roughly the same amount of time through either Lubbock, El Paso, or Roswell. I've got my personal favorite but I want to hear what you have to say. Which route would you choose? Keep in mind I'll only be passing through but I'll stop long enough for pictures and a meal.

El Paso, Lubbock, or Roswell. Let me know in the comments.

Since our event was going to be in the evening, I wanted a cityside view so you can see the lights of the buildings reflecting off into the windows. The event spaces were totally worth every penny.
