My fiancee and I are looking at spending our honeymoon driving cross country in winter 2012. At this stage it's looking like January for 3 weeks.
We have both done road trips across the USA in summer on separate occasions and would love to see the country in winter. In particular we are really interested in seeing Yellowstone and doing some winter tours there.
We would like to include Chicago and NYC as the last stop.
We're wondering how feasible a trip like this might be? Is it really unsafe to be driving through South Dakota/Iowa/Illinois at this time of the year?
We are from Australia and have both had some experience driving in snow but are not that experienced.
Any guidance would be appreciated.
