I was wondering if I could get some advice about the best way to get from Richmond to Seattle in early May.
I'm moving to Seattle, and since I'll be travelling with animals, I'd like to get there as quickly and safely as possible.
I'm considering I-90 for the bulk of the trip west, but I've been reading that even in May, the weather in Montana can be unpredictable, and I have no idea what the Snoqualmie Pass can be like that time of year.
Having lived most of my life in Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic, the whole concept of snow tires, mountain passes, and possible spring snow is a completely foreign one to me. :) Is I-80 a better choice for a bicoastal greenhorn such as myself, or can I reasonably expect smooth sailing in Montana and the Cascades in early May?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
