i'm going to be making a big move at the end of November, from nashville to seattle.
i''m renting a 22 foot penske truck which will be towing a car (one a car carrier, not a tow dolly) and then i'll be driving another car behind the penske.
needless to say, i don't know what the weather will be like in the last week of november - so depending on the weather, i'll either take I29 up to I90 and take that across, take I29 up to I80 then I84 then I82 to seattle, or if the weather is bad - i'll take I40 straight across to California and then work my way north from there.
It goes without saying that I40 is the safest route, but it'll also take an extra day's time and that's another 600 miles of gas expense.
i've heard that I80 can be very dangerous because it goes through Wyoming and that the winds in Wyoming can be downright treacherous.
I90 seems like a straightforward route, but i can still hit winds in Montana and further, i'll be going through some tough driving in western Montana and through Washington.
I've never seen any of those routes before so i don't know what to expect in terms of how treacherous the terrain might be, especially with a 22" penske towing a car. Presuming that weather is optimal - are the roads through the mountains on either I80/I84 or I90 that treacherous that i should resign myself all together to taking the southern and safer route - with the understanding of "better late than never?"
Any/all opinions would be much appreciated .. thank you
