This summer my father and I will be traveling across the country from OC to Parsippany, NJ in order to haul our two dogs who can't fly on planes for health reasons. Our family is moving to NJ but we won't be hauling anything with us, as that'll be taken care of by the movers. I was wondering which of the two routes (I-80 or I-40) you all would recommend. According to google maps either way will take about 40 hours. I doubt we'll have too much time for sightseeing but a scenic car ride would be great. Also would one route be less taxing on the dogs? I ask this as one of our dogs, a french bulldog, like many bulldogs has difficulty breathing in situations in which he becomes nervous/tense, this is why he can't fly as airlines see it as too great a liability.
Your recommendations are greatly appreciated!
