My wife and I are relocating to San Francisco after 6 years in DC. She got a job there and will be flying out there to start, while I follow with our dogs about a month later. Looking for advice as far as the route to take. My father will be joining me to help out with the driving and he's done a similar drive before, but not in late October. I'd like to take a southern route to avoid potential snow and ice in the Rockies. Not sure how much of an issue that is lately. I'll also be traveling with one very vocal labrador retriever and a second very calm labrador retriever, mainly because I don't want to fly them cross country as the expense would be the same and would likely be very traumatic for them.
Not looking to sight see, or take leisurely stops. Looking to get to SF as fast as I can within reason. Any advice on route, timing, stops and hotel/motels that are pet friendly would be a great help! Thanks!
