Hi everyone, thanks for coming into my thread and reading this.
I plan to drive one-way from Kansas City, MO to SF during Christmas. I plan to see my girlfriend there and spend time with her as much as possible. So, I think I do not really care what I will see along the way as long as I'll get there safe. Even though, I like to see her as soon as possible, I want to be safe as well.
The route that I plan to use is I-70W go all the way to Denver. After that, I plan to switch to I-80 then get to SF.
I am aware that it can be snowy road along the way. My car is normal Sedan Car, not 4WD. Since my first priority is safety for me and for others, I feel reluctant to use I-70W.
So, I am thinking about maybe I use a detour like go down with I-35 to I-40W and get to Los Angeles, first. Then go to SF later in order to avoid dangerous condition on I-70W. I am not really sure whether this is worthwhile.
About my experiences, I have a couple road trips before. However, all of them were summer road trip. So, this will be my first winter road trip. I have about a week for this trip and I think it should be just fine.
Any suggestions on plan and route would be appreciated. I am thinking about 2 overnight stops, but still not sure where. Again, my first priority is safety. Nice scene along the way is just only a plus.
