My husband and I are moving from Richmond, VA to San Francisco, CA right after Christmas. We are a little concerned about the weather and don't really want to drive through a ton of snow but would also like to do some sightseeing along the way. We have up to 2 weeks to complete the trip. Movers will be taking our "stuff" but we will be driving the car, a fairly new SUV.
Any recommendations for a route to minimize weather concerns and any "must-sees" along the way? We have done a few fairly long road trips in the past (Salt Lake to Yellowstone to Glacier and back to Salt Lake; San Francisco to Yosemite to Napa and back to San Fran; Virginia to Charleston/ Savannah to New Orleans to Nashville back to Virginia) but this is the first cross-county trip for us. Thanks for any advice you can give.
