My family and I are planning a road trip from OC California to Virginia and will attend the 2009 Presidential Inauguration festivities in Washington DC. I have never driven from Ca to the East Coast in January so I am a little apprehensive. Is it safe to drive during this time of year? It will be a total of 13 of us and we are thinking about getting a 15 passenger van. What are some of the things we need to be aware of should it start to snow? Will we need any special types of clothes other than really warm clothes such as hats, gloves, scarves etc?
Last question, does anybody have an itinerary if the swearing in and parade? Where exactly will the parade take place?
