    Default Define Best?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    "Best" is a just such a tough word to define a route, because the best route depends upon what you want to do.

    Now the fastest route would be to take I-90 to Seattle, and then cut up to Vancouver from there. Its 2200 miles, and could be done in as little as 4 days, being on the road for about 10 hours a day - In good conditions. However, since this trip will be done in late February, I wouldn't at all be surprised to see at least one battle with winter weather on your trip, so I would budget at least 5 days to be on the safe side.

    There are lots of potential detours, from the Black Hills and Yellowstone, to Glacier NP, or even the Canadian Rockies, but that depends what your goals for the trip are.
