I just signed up on this forum and sincerely want to thank the people who set up this forum. It has been a real eye opener on various topics especially for people like me who are doing a long road trip for the first time and are real novices.
I am moving from Reno, NV to Columbus, OH for a new job and instead of flying, thought of doing a road trip. The thought of it sounded really exciting but now that there's only a week before I start the road trip, I am feeling a little nervous. A lot of the general queries were answered reading through different threads on the forum, but would appreciate some guidance on some more specific ones:
looking at the map, it seems like I could go through salt lake city, UT and then stay on I80 W most of the way. But then someone told me that it would be better if I go through Denver and then take I 70 W. Any suggestions on which would be a better route to take as far as gas stations and rest areas.
What would be a good website where I could read about current weather conditions specific to highways. I haven't been able to read about weather conditions specifically through Wyoming, Kansas and northern Missouri at this time of the year. Heard from people about storms and stuff during this time of the year.
Once again thanks for all the valuable information on this website and would really appreciate some guidance.
