We are planning a trip from Baton Rouge, LA to Chicago, IL in late December (20 to 30 December, 2012). We will take the I-55 and I-57. Anybody has an idea for this route in winters. We have minimal experience driving in snow conditions. If anybody knows a better route considering the winter conditions, Please let us know? and How should we prepare for winter driving?
we are planning to rent a car, any suggestions on type to be rented to handle the conditions?
