    Although I've heard some vague estimates, a good estimate via Hwy 78 and Birmingham is appreciated. Have never driven east of BHM.

    When I finish some initial tng. over there in February, it might be possible to visit a couple of gun shops with a good milsurp variety (SKS, FR8 etc) on the return trip if there is time. If not Anniston, maybe a regular shop near the route.

    The infamous Google Maps has this to say:

    Suggested routes

    US-78 E and I-20 E
    383 mi, 6 hours 33 mins

    US-78 E and AL-74 E
    397 mi, 7 hours 14 mins

    US-78 E
    407 mi, 7 hours 17 mins

    I always took I-20 and US-78. It's a well maintained route.
    In Memphis, I always stayed at the Extended Stay on Sycamore View. Convenient to decent restaurants and the highway.

    Thanks very much.

    If you or anybody else makes it back to Syc. View/I-40, the very large scenic park (paved and long wooded trails) known as Shelby Farms is only 10 min. south from that, and two other nearby I-40 intersections.
