I currently live in SD, and I need to move my car in Rochester NY here the first week of January. I can leave either New Years Eve, or the first of January, but I need to be in SD no later than January 8th. What route should I take? I have a 2001 PT Cruiser with 60,000 miles and new tires. I want to avoid mountains and lots of snow, so I'm thinking driving south toward Tennessee and then through Texas to CA. Am I crazy for driving my car in January? Should I have it shipped to me instead? I won't be traveling alone, and I have always wanted to travel across the country. I would be traveling with a filmmaker friend who would document the entire trip and use it in film school, which would make this all the more fun. What should I do?
