I will be traveling across the country (in a 2015 Hydunai Accent) and even though I'm excited, I'm also nervous about the drive. I've never driven in snow, I will be buying chains to take with me. I was planning on taking the longer route option(given by maps) and that's I-40 E and later I-70 E to avoid driving through Colorado, because I read on here that they are strict about tires and also I've heard the weather isn't driving friendly. Yet I have no idea. Any tips? What should I be aware off? Also my maps says it will take me about 1 day and 7hrs but of course I will be stopping and if the weather is bad then I will be getting a hotel but does anybody have an estimated idea on how long it will take me? Thanks in advance and I hope it all makes sense.
