I am relocating from Victoria, BC (near Seattle) to Johnson City, TN (near Knoxville) to go to school. I will be doing this trip leaving Dec. 26 and have about 1 week.
I am wondering if it would be better to go down to LA (I-5) and then take the I-40 across in the south to avoid bad winter road conditions. It would be quicker going through the midwest (Idaho, Colorado) but I am afraid that weather conditions could be much worse. Am I correct in this assumption?
Also, if I were to go the more southern route, should all-season tires be fine...or would it be worth the investment for winter tires?
