    Another issue with I-80 is California has the strictest chain laws in the country, and chains are frequently required over Donner Pass.

    I'm going to disagree with both of you. In the winter, driving a truck and towing, I'd stick to Interstates as much as possible, and I'd be wary of I-80 through Wyoming, it's high prairie and...

    Where are you flying into from across the pond? I assume somewhere other than SLC and you will have to change planes. If you are spending the night somewhere before flying to SLC, you may be able...

    Welcome to RTA!

    Would it be possible to take the train? Amtrak can get you pretty close to Washington NC.

    The only comment I have about Buck's suggestion is this - the traffic on I-95 between Richmond and NYC is terrible, and there are several tolls involved. You may want to dump the car in DC and use...

    Long term parking at DCA is $17 a day. It looks to be considerably cheaper at the 4 Metro stations ($4.95 to $8.95) but as said, spots are limited. If you are just going in for the day, you can...

    Yes, there are 2 sets of tunnels on I-70 - the Eisenhower Tunnel 60 miles west of Denver and (I think) 3 short tunnels in Glenwood Canyon.

    Interstate highways are built with shoulders and guard rails where needed, they are designed to carry a large amount of traffic as quickly as safely possible, and are multi-lane. Obey the speed...

    The airport is on the south side, just inside the I-285 bypass, just east of I-85, and just west of I-75, so I'd probably take the I-285 west bypass.

    For NYC, I'd stay out in the NJ suburbs and ride the commuter train into the city, and once in the city, look at the subway. It's a lot cheaper than Uber. Same with DC, stay out in VA or MD and...

    No, that's not better. It's 1500 miles. In order to do that in 21 hours, you will have to average over 70 mph, which is not possible. When you add in food, bathroom and gas stops, and account for...

    Five hours a day, for 10 hours a day total? That's 20 hours, which won't even get you to Colorado, much less Copper Mountain. Your math is way off.

    It's a couple hundred miles longer, but in the winter I'd stick to the Interstates and 4 lane highways as much as possible if you will be driving a truck and towing a car.
