seeking routing suggestions for Del Rio cycling loop

.Doing a loop cycling tour starting and ending in Del Rio, TX. Seeking advice/experience on routing options going east from Fort Stockton NOT on US 90. I will ride the Southern Tier (ACA) route to from Del Rio to Marfa. Plan from there is:

--North on TX 17 to I-10 via Fort Davis
--I-10 to Fort Stockton
-- US 385, Texas 305, US 190 to Iraan
--US 190 to Eldorodo
--US 277 to Del Rio

A bit worried about the 90-mile ride from Sonora to Del Rio, as it looks rather desolate.

Would appreciate any suggestions re alternatives (sorry, fixed on the Del Rio loop concept) and on what to expect re elevation gain, amenities (most likely few if any). What about the riding conditions on 385/190/277? For those riding on I-10, have you had problems re flats from blown up tire steel pieces? Going in late October/early November. Looks like mixed winds, decent temps.
