I ask if someone can suggest a good route? (Houston to Amarillo - actually a little south of Amarillo)

I tried Yahoo - But, the suggested route seems to include a lot of little roads. (I could be wrong, I am not familiar with the route - But it lists a lot of different highway/route numbers for small amounts of miles).

My experience with travelling is to stick (as much as possible) with the major highways, even if you go a bit out of your way.

Any suggestions?

I think I would take I-45 to Ennis and then catch US 287 from Ennis straight into Amarillo. I think that's probably the quickest and easiest way. Two major roads and that's it!

Just go to Google Maps, try it instead. I think its gonna take you the same way as Yahoo, but it might word it better. It may sound like you are changing roads a lot, but you really aren't. Many of the roads will have more than one number, (like through Ft Worth where signs may say 820/287 etc) but just follow the signs that say US 287. The only way to get there and stay on roads like interstates would take you way out of the way. Like I-45 to Dallas, switching to I-35 to Oklahoma City to I-40 to Amarillo. That's gonna take you way too long.

I think you are correct... It's been a few years but I'm pretty sure that's the way we went... I checked and that is the way we went... and no matter how you go it's a LONG drive.....
