NOT experienced cross-country or mountain driver (eastern city boy).
Taking loaded-up 12 yr old 150000 mile Mercedes SUV with UHaul trailer attached.
Looking for route that will be easiest on old car and present best chance of avoiding winter weather.
- Trying to find maps showing topography of routes.
- How do I reliably check out weather conditions before I leave?
- Will I need to have studded tires or chains traveling this time of year?
