I'm looking for some advice from some seasoned travelers. My husband and I will be moving from Spokane to Valdosta and will drive our two cars there. No children, but our cats will be coming with us. We did a similar move from east to west around 8 years ago with the same cats, but in May.
I'm hoping for some advice on doing the drive in November. I have two routes planned, one northerly and one southerly. Personally, I'm not a fan of driving through the rockies and going across montana again. My husband's car does not have awd or snow tires. However, that route is shorter.
Please take a look at these two itineraries and let me know which one you'd choose, why, and any must see stops along the way.
Northern route 38hrs:
Spokane WA to Billings MT (8.5hrs)
Billings MT to Sioux Falls SD (10 hrs)
Sioux Falls SD to St. Louis (9hrs)
St. Louis to Atlanta Ga (8hrs)
Atlanta Ga to Valdosta GA (3.5 hrs)
Southern route 47hrs:
Spokane WA to Twin Falls ID (8hrs)
Twin Falls ID to Las Vegas NV (8.5hrs)
Vegas to Albuquerque NM (8hrs)
Albuquerque to Oklahoma City (8hrs)
OK City to Nashville TN (10hrs)
Nashville to Valdosta GA (8hrs)
Thanks in advance!
