OK, I am attempting to research how to drive from Seattle (recently laid off) to Ohio with a trailer and see a SCENIC route. I have never ventured to the Yellow Stone and would like to visits there for a short bit and HEAD north to Ohio. I have a small U haul trailer and I am paranoid about pulling it THROUGH the mountains of Washington, IDAHO and Montana. I drove here from the east coast during the summer and it was dangerous!
I would like to go south Montana and head North to Ohio from the Yellow Stone? Has anyone made this trip? Is it seriously dangerous pulling a small 4 x 8 trailer with a Honda Odyssey? Can I avoid the dangerous trip I ventured here to the pacific returning to the North East? I heard you cannot get through the mountains easy this time of year. Washington, Idaho and Montana are dangerous to drive during the winter months? To compound things I have a 4 x 8 trailer?? Is it wise to go south and head north or should I risk the drive...albeit with a bit more time involved??
