I've read through many of the threads but realize we still need help on our move from Atlanta to Seattle later this month.
My husband will be driving a 22ft moving truck, towing his car, and I will be following behind in mine (not a 4wd vehicle). Neither of us are experienced winter weather drivers. We are leaving on a Sunday and need to arrive/unpack on Thursday.
We understand there isn't perfect route this time of year but are hoping for the least eventful one. Our plan is to go south, then up through California. We were originally thinking I-20 to El Paso to I-10 to I-5 to avoid as much snow/ice as possible. Friends have suggested I-40 as a more all-weather highway. (If so, I'm not sure the best state to pick it up.) Our friends have also warned us to avoid the Grapevine above LA on I-5, especially towing a car. (Trying to figure that out too.)
At this point my heads spinning a bit and my collection of trip tix is growing. We don't own snow chains and would only buy them on the road if needed. (Feasible?)
Thanks in advance for you help ~ if only it was summer
