Hello, i am a 4th year college student, and i am planning for a roadtrip across the country from my home in san jose, ca.
to help me out with the trip, i will have 2 other friends with me to start the spring semester in January, and as soon as we celebrate new years, i am planning to pick up a friend in Los Angeles and start heading to the east coast! i have done fair amount of research online and your forum, but i am beginning to question whether it would be safe to drive during such a rough weather (especially in the upstate). I have never driven in snow, but i do have much experience driving in the west.
I wanted to post here to ask specifically if there are any useful tips, such as specific routes for January driving, or simply any other precautions that we should take as we begin the journey. i have put aside approximately 10 days, but shorter would be much preferable..
