We're moving at the end of the week and, up until last night, were planning to take the northern route (395 to Spokane, 90 to Billings, MT, 80 down through South Dakota and into Iowa). We've had a lot of snow and that has started to make us worried about this route.
We've started to consider taking the southern route, the SUPER long drive through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma and then up through Kansas.
The other factor is that we are moving our most precious cargo, our 4 month old baby. Which is crazier: facing potential blizzards in the north or driving basically twice as long but in safer weather?
