So I'm finally getting close to realizing this trip I've been planning for a couple years now. To visit my 2 best friends, in Victoria BC, I would be taking a road trip from SF. From what I was able to research, it seems like I'll be following the I5 - north to Washington. And from there ferry it via port Angeles to victoria. But I have a few concerns in all this.
1) Ive done over 24 hrs of continuous driving multiple times before, so I'm planning on getting there in one shot. Does anybody have any experience of 5north during the last week of december? Icy? Snow? Not so much?
2) The ferry connecting Port Angeles to Victoria seems to not be operating in January, and that's when I plan on returning. So what are my options? Via vancouver?
3) And any other suggestions, please?
