My wife and I are planning to drive our (6 cylinder) passenger sedan towing 5'X8' Uhaul trailer from Los Angeles to Baltimore.
There is not much time pressure as we only need to arrive by end of December. Wife will mostly be a passenger, but could pitch in if needed.
This will be a first time driving cross country for both of us, added to which is the winter conditions, quite alien to us Californians!
We are planning to start from LA on Dec 23 afternoon. I was figuring on taking the I 40 to Flagstaff, and detour to spend a few hours at the Grand Canyon weather permitting. Then continue on I-40 stopping to spend the night along the route, through to Knoxville TN. From there I-81 North through Virginia should be a good bet.
Appreciate tips suggestions from experienced winter trippers regarding safety and possible points of interest enroute. Thanks
