To be honest I'm not even sure if I'm in the right place to ask this, so please cut me some slack. Anyway, well we're planning on moving from Los Angeles to a small town in central Washington state named, Wenatchee.
My first question is, since we're moving up there and only taking our little car. It's probably going to be filled up with all of our stuff. Which way would be the best way to get up there, with a car load of stuff. I mean, which way would it be easiest on the car. We've driven up and down from there a couple times, but I can't seem to really remember which way would be best for us in our little car filled with junk. I'm trying to avoid huge steep hills and stuff like that.
Second question is, although we are planning on taking our trip before (or after) the snow season.. if we absolutely had to drive through there in the winter months.. how bad is it? Which would be the easiest way though all of that, without the use of chains?
I have no problems with the driving in California. My main concerns are which highway to take through Oregon, the 5, or the 97. We recently took a trip up there and took the 5 north all the way up Oregon, but I noticed that there was A LOT of extremely tough mountain roads and etc.. I don't remember what the drive on the 97 was like. Obviously there is hills and such on the 97 as well, but what I was wondering if maybe it would be less of a workload on a car going that way. Anyway, thanks in advance.
Any help will be EXTREMELY appreciated.
