Would love some insight.
I am setting off from DC and would like to take a southern route, obviously. I will have two kids with me and may be towing a pop up. We will be stopping in Las Vegas and picking up my oldest at the airport. If weather is looking good I will take 81 through the mountains. If not then I'm thinking of traveling down 95 to 20 to avoid the mountains. I don't hear great things about I-10, thoughts on that??
What type of weather can I expect?
Will I hit tornadoes?
I am going to take my time. If traveling 81, I want to stop in Chattanooga, Birmingham then pick up 20. If traveling 95, I want to stop in Savannah and then Huntsville and then continue on 20. I will skirt Dallas, at this point would it be safe to head north a bit. I think Texas is a trip by itself so will save that as a college trip.
Once we hit California, I would like to camp at Joshua Tree. Any great tips for that?
Thanks in advance, you folks are always great with help.
