My wife and I just traveled US 60 from Virginia Beach to west of Brenda Junction, Arizona (east end to west end of 60). We found it to be a very interesting route, except you might want to avoid some of the larger cities. We also found the condition of the road to be outstanding compared to I-40 through Oklahoma and Texas on which we returned. There's a lot of beauty to be seen and a lot of joy to be found in passing through many of the small towns that were bypassed and somewhat forgotten. I would recommend it to anyone traveling east ot west across country. It might add some time to the trip, but would be well worth it.

I agree with you that roads like US 60/80/64/54/ and most of all 50 are just great if you have the time, and are one of the forgotten beauties of travel in the US.
I took it for some distance out west and just couldn't get over how deserted they are. Sometimes a little too deserted. I got spooked some times in Texas when I did not see another driver or building for that matter for some time.
