Greetings and Happy Holidays!
My wife and I will be moving cross-country in mid-Jan., traveling from Cleveland to Portland, OR. We're having trouble in determining a route and would appreciate any advice.
1. I-80 Route: I-80 to I-84
2. I-90 Route: I-80 to I-29 to I-90
The trip out to (about) Omaha, NE would be the same for either route, but then we'd have to decide.
From what I could tell, #1 seems slightly shorter (by about 100 mi), but also looks more mountainous than Option #2. Any truth to that?
So, any comparisons / info / recommendations on winter driving conditions for the two routes west of Omaha would be greatly appreciated. Obviously, driving a 22ft. moving truck, I'd like to avoid as much bad weather (particularly over the mountains) as possible.
