So I'm moving from Orange County, CA to NYC, leaving April 1st. I'll be staying with my friend in Long Island. I wanted to take a northern route to pass through Chicago. I don't want it to take more than 3-4 days to get there. What do you think of CA to Denver to Chicago to NY? Mileage-wise it seems like a good plan, but I don't know what the roads, weather, etc. are like, or if it will be easy or hard to find a motel to crash in, etc.
