Moving out to San Fran to start work in a couple of weeks. Would love to drive out on I-80. But I don't want to get caught in any snow on that route considering I have a rear-wheel-drive sports sedan. So I was planning on going south to OKC and catching I-40 into CA, then up 5 to SF.
Any issues with this route? I know there's potential for snow in the mountains around Albuquerque and Flagstaff. But I presume the risk is less than I-80.
AAA's suggested route was to go even farther south into Texas to Houstan, then across to Phoenix and up to LA to catch 5.
But that's a pretty long detour...
