Hello, I am traveling to California from central Pennsylvania in order to do an internship assignment for about 4 months. I will begin travel in the middle of January 2013. Are there any routes, or precautions I should take when driving cross country this time of year?
I have already equipped my vehicle (Isuzu I290 standard truck, 2008, 40,000 miles) with snow tires and 400 pounds of grit sand tubes in the bed (along with the rest of my belongings that I will be taking as well).
Like I said I have never driven cross country before, and the time of the year sort of concerns me but I believe this is cheaper than flying out and renting a car once I am out there.
