Not sure if this is the correct section although it is a late fall early winter drive... I am new to this site. So here goes:
My fiance is from Hagerman, Idaho... A little town just S/E of Boise. We want to do a road trip (which I love to do and have been many places, but not Idaho) and he has never done. We live in San Diego and want to spend Thanksgiving with hsi family and we both have a good 10 days off during this time. Is this is a good or a bad idea to drive there during the end of November? I have looked up the route and it appears to go through many mountain ranges and small highway changes abound. I have traveled through from Orane County to Salt Lake but I believe they were more direct larger Freeways. I have also driving form Colorado Springs to Phoenix... As well as many Tahoe and Reno trips from SoCal as well, so I am no stranger to mountain driving in the snow... But these have all been on somewhat major thoroughfares.
I am just wondering if anyone has done this drive and if anyone has any advice. Should we split it up into 2 days or just go at it early and do all in one day. I have drivin straight through for 26 hours to the Texas/Louisiana Border from SoCal so I am also not a stranger to straight through drives. The route goes through Vegas, so I am sure we may want to stop a lil longer through there, but it looks as if there isn't much else through Northern Nevada to stop at along the way... But I don't know. Also, I am wondering if there are any passes that may be inpassable at this late fall early winter time due to ice or snow. Any and all advice is welcome!!
