    I think you're on the right track in terms of route, but as Buck indicated, Time isn't exactly on your side, yet time is the single most important thing you want on a winter trip.

    500 miles a day...

    The route you've laid out is an excellent starting point, and exactly what I would do. I-90 is often a better choice than I-80, especially across the Rockies. This route also does give you the...

    I'm just a couple hours north of you and I used to have family in Tampa/Clearwater so I've made this drive many times.

    The options you are looking at are both good and ones I've used many times....

    Historic US-99 seems like a tough thing to really get behind when a large portion of it just became CA-99. Frankly, I can think of quite a few decommissioned US highways that continue on as state...

    For baking, there's an interesting stovetop oven that I have heard good things about.

    I haven't used it myself, but it's been in my Amazon cart for a while. The...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Yes, this trip is possible in 2 days, presuming everything goes well. It's about 1100 miles, so you'll be looking at about 9-10 hours on the road each day. The most...

    The biggest issues with I-80 and I-70 are elevation.

    I-70 crosses the Colorado rockies at over 10,000 ft.
    I-80 across Wyoming doesn't go as high, but is still over 8,000 ft across much of...

    I can tell you would love to be given single answers of exactly how you should go about this trip - this is the best route, this is the best weather forecast, etc - but this isn't the kind of thing...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Honestly, no - because "winter conditions" are not a static thing so flexibility is key. Generally speaking, the best route is the direct route - the shorter the...

    As GLC mentioned, gates for winter closures are hardly unique to I-90.

    If they do close the highway, it will be obvious where you have to get off - they will direct all traffic onto an off ramp,...

    It should probably be pointed out that for low elevation, I-90 is the best choice. It's at a lower elevation than any cross country interstate other than i-10 (which would not be a good choice for...

    I will remind you that you will have to review the COVID guidelines for crossing the border. While it is open, there are restrictions and you'll have to see how they apply to you as a Canadian...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I think you're on the right track here.

    I-80 being mostly free of snow is a likely outcome, but not a certain one. Once you're into November, snow is a possibility...

    Where in Oregon are you planning to fly into? Trying to get from Portland all the way down the coast into California would be a pretty long day on the road, especially if you want to see things along...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    That sounds like a great trip.

    What are you doing for transportation? Cars and motels or RV travel?

    You probably should keep in mind that even the places you're...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I'm not sure exactly what you're thinking about in terms of routes (I-81 is a north/south route that doesn't go anywhere near Missouri?) but purely for scenery, I...

    I'm actually surprised you saw any signs for US-52 north of Minneapolis.

    US-52 is technically the same road as I-94 from St. Paul all the way to Central North Dakota - where it splits off and...

    Personally, I'd actually probably take I-90 as far as Sioux Falls, and then drop down to I-80 via I-29/I-680. You'll have a little less elevation that way, which with a loaded down SUV that is...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    As others have mentioned, you can certainly get to Yellowstone in 5 days, but without knowing any other details about your plans, it's hard to say if that's "good."

    At the very least, how much...

    I think that's pretty commendable, seems like...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Best routes are hard because what is best for you depends upon so many variables. For example, time is a huge one and the difference between 2 and 3 weeks is quite...

    I've got a custom made teardrop and I love it. It's basically a bed on wheels, with an outdoor kitchen. It's small enough that I can take it anywhere, including many places I'd never go with a full...
