    Default Ice is a given!

    Welcome to the trip planning forums!

    That's a lot of miles for a short period of time. How much time are you allowing for each of the trips? By the most direct route, it's 842.5 miles. So that's a minimum of two days on the road each way.

    WRT weather -- no one around here has a crystal ball that can predict weather conditions along any particular route. One thing I would recommend is to look at the WUnderground.com site trip planner a few days before you leave -- their algorithms incorporate weather forecasting tools about 7-8 days in advance and you can get a pretty reasonably good idea as to the most likely places you will be finding ice and snow on the route.

    Default But, ice-free a week from now!

    As an example, I ran the WUnderground report for November 26th and the entire route starting on the 26th is ice-free-- with temps along the route in the mid 50's and 60's. But cold air is moving east and if any of those cold fronts along the Great Lakes push south you might well see ice. So, I would run this program on the 10th of December and see how it looks then.
