not exactly the ideal time to move to san antonio, ...
we have quite a few stops planned in CA/AZ/NM but not so much in Texas. what's missing? I think we're currently routed down the 10 but detours are welcome
(map shows ~3200 miles, 5 or 6 mostly-full days)

Its very pretty around Fort Davis.
Also try to pass through Guadalupe Mountains and pass by El Capitan. Thats pretty cool.

a few detours along the way. Had a great time - though I wasn't in the S4...
Have a safe & fun drive, Welcome to Texas & nice sig pic!
Once in TX watch out for DPS (Dept of Public Safety) - black & white state trooper; especially since you'll be nearing the end of your trip and possibly tired - if you get pulled over at night proactively turn on the interior lights so they can see inside - if during the day time take off your shades before the officer reaches your door, stay in the car (with seatbelt on), roll the window down & have your drivers license and insurance paper work ready. Let them make conversation, or not - when asked where you're headed inform you're moving to San Antonio from Seattle. If they ask if you know why they pulled you over - say no sir/mam. Be politely matter of fact. If you were speeding, own up to it in your mind.
Not trying to cause any concern - but some tips can go a long way...

I'm dropping my wife off in San Antonio for school. She hasn't seen much of the tourist-y things south of Oregon, and it'll be our only real vacation together for a while. I'll probably fly down once a month or something, and arrange a different route for the trip home next September.
Too bad it's not in the S4... almost every road trip I've been on has been in a crap car. This time around it'll be in a 96 Camry :(

i'll start a rough plan for our overnight stops pretty soon. have friends & family to visit in a few cities, plus sonoma and all the tourist destinations along the way... we'll try to hit as much as is reasonable for an eight or nine day drive

Try finding a proper sized tire outside of a major city. Try. ;)
