SPRING TRAINING 2004 ROADTRIP
Interstate 40 New Mexico

Interstate 40 connects Barstow, California, to Wilmington, North Carolina. The interstate goes through several cities including Flagstaff, Albuquerque, Amarillo, Oklahoma City, Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, Asheville, and Raleigh. On Day Eight and Day Nine of the Spring Training 2004 Roadtrip, I drove Interstate 40 from Interstate 17 in Flagstaff, Arizona, to Interstate 44 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
