This is my first post--I have enjoyed browsing the various threads and appreciate both the knowledge and courtesy of this forum.
In late June I plan to move from Fort Wayne, In to Port Townsend, WA.
I will be driving a 16' truck with a car trailer (towing my project car) while my son will drive "wing man" with my daily driver. My question is: which route?
I'm no stranger to long road trips but this will be my first time with a vehicle as big as the moving truck and car carrier---also it will the first long hall drive for my son. I would like the trip to be as easy on the vehicles as possible yet, since this will be about a 4 or 5 day drive, would like to have a few side trips to break up the long days. What I like to do is park the van and get in my daily driver and take a short (50mi) excursion to points of intrest.
It looks like I can take any of three routes--I80 to SLC then I84 to Portland, then I5 north or I90 the whole way or maybe I94 (yes I know it's longer but if the scenery is better it could be worth it).
Any input on which routes have difficult grades, interesting scenery-quirky points of intrest etc would be appreciated.
