In Gilmore v. State, a case out of the Court of Appeals in Texarkana, there was an anonymous tip that the defendant was traveling towards the county in a white truck, and that was found not to be sufficient to create reasonable suspicion because the route was a well-travelled corridor. In addition, "the corroborative tip merely predicted the defendant's current course of travel rather than any future itinerary"...The travel was down a well-travelled corridor, which was the usual route between Crockett and Trinity, and the tip merely predicted the defendant's current course of travel.
