I am planning a trip out west from New York to Seattle.
My route is looking something like NYC-Chicago-Minniapolis-S.Dakota-Jackson WY-Missoula MT-Seattle.
I am thinking of taking highways instead of the interstate and giving myself about 5-6 days to complete the journey. I do want to catch the occasional sight but I will be focusing more on the small towns I will be passing through. I plan on sleeping in my car (a wagon)-except in Jackson where I will be at a friends house.
my questions are:
-will it be warm enough in early to mid May in these northern states to be sleeping in my car?
-will there be much snow in Minn, S. Dakota or the higher elevations that would hinder my progress?
-is 5-6 days an adequate amount of time?
-has anyone used the app trapster to avoid speed traps, traffic, hazards, etc?
-any great little towns that I should seek out?
some notes: I have been told I am a recklessly fast driver. My car is all wheel drive. My cat is my co-pilot
