    Default New Hampshire to San Fran in Feb.

    A friend and I are taking a road trip/moving to San Fran in February of 2007. I have driven across the country twice before, from Mass to AZ, but that was in August and then back in November. Slightly different temperatures than what we will encounter this time around in Feb! We have planned about 10 or so days to make the trip, taking into account weather situations and stops to visit friends/family.

    Any suggestions on the best route to take? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Default That Depends

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Generally in winter, when there is a fair chance of inclement weather no matter which route you take, the most direct and well travelled option is the best. In your case that would mean dropping down out of New Hampshire as quickly as you can and then following I-90 (the Mass Pike, New York Thruway, etc.) to join up with I-80 around Cleveland, and then follow I-80 straight through to San Francisco. Of course, that does not take into account any side trips for your visits to friends/family. If they are significantly off the direct route, you'll have to find another way.

    Plan on leaving a day's leeway in your itinerary where you can sit out any bad weather. Going completely cross country in February means that there is a significant likelihood that you'll need it. If you're lucky, you can sit out any weather delay among friends.
