    Default Advice

    We are moving to LA from NYC and planning to drive accross country in about8 or 9 days.

    What route would you recommend that would be the best comprimise of seeing some sights without getting to far of the major roads?

    I would also like to minimise the risk of running into snow as my car (a BMW M3) only has summer low profile tires.

    Thanks

  2. Default I-40 or I-10/I-20/I-30/I-40

    Any of these routes can have snow. When are you traveling? The earlier you go the better -- once into late December or January, your chances of winter weather increase everywhere along the route.

    Your best bets are probably I-40 or the more southerly 2nd suggestion via El Paso, Dallas, Memphis, Nashville and then arcing north up I-81 into the destination.

    My opinion, I-40 has the most attractions and is a bit prettier, but I-10 is great too. Take your choice of Grand Canyon, Santa Fe and St Louis, etc, or Tucson, Kartchner Caverns (AZ), Big Bend NP, and others.

    yah low profile tires, just check news weather info. so that you would avoid heavy snow fall.p.s. just be careful and take care, ok dude?
    and way better check your car insurance, like me better be assured than never.

    We are going to be going mid-Novemeber.

    With regards to checking my insureance, apart from the obvious of making sure I have some, is there some other factor with regards to cross country driving?
