  1. Default Traveling from Southern California to Seattle on Jan 20th 2013

    I am traveling from Southern California to Seattle on January 20th, 2013 and am looking for the safest driving route as my car is lousy in snow. If chains is the foolproof solution ok if not what is the alternative?

    Default There is Only One 'Alternative'

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    It hardly seems like six years ago that I wrote this advice, but it still holds true. The fact is that if you don't have experience with driving in snow/ice, and driving with chains, and have a car that is up to the task, then the best thing to do when faced with such conditions is simply: Don't Drive!

    The Interstates receive the lion's share of the attention from road crews in bad weather. They get the most salt and sand, are the last to close and the first to be reopened during any winter storm. so they are your best bet, in this particular case I-5 all the way. But again, if conditions exceed the capabilities of you and/or the car, Don't Drive! Chains simply will not make the difference.
