Thanks for his forum. I've done cross-country 3 times, once with friends, and twice solo.
Nevertheless, that was in the mid-90s. I had hoped to have three weeks or so, mostly for meandering, and dropping
in on long-lost friends but alas, I leave on Feb 4th mid-day, and need to be in NYC by the 13th latest....
I'm leaning towards going through Nevada, the Dakotas and onwards to Minneapolis - in the hope that
I could still see people for a couple days.
The northern route is based on some likely idiotic notion that it'd be preferable to drive through snow up north
than ice in the southern routes, especially since the middle part of the country's one big blizzard belt right now.
Still doing my research but would welcome any advice, tips etc..
Being that it's anyone's guess as to how the weather shapes up - is my notion not too crazy?
Possible to have two days in Mpls if I leave on the 4th, and have to be in NYC by the 12th, latest 13th?
btw, I'm driving a Land Rover Discovery 96, with a 2inch lift and snow mud tires....
thanks in advance,
