I'm new to the forum (and road trips in general). We plan to take one next week from Seattle to SFO (or perhaps even San Diego). The thing is, the weather doesn't look too promising - it'll be raining most places and even snowing if we go as late as the 20th/21st.
My question is: How bad is I-5 south (are there any mountains or passes we should be careful about, esp. given the weather?
How about US-101? Is that a better alternative, despite the 5 extra hours? Is it scenic enough in the winter/rains?
We're driving with a pre-schooler & a baby, so I was wondering if it in fact gets so bad that it's worth canceling the plan?
Any do's/don'ts will be appreciated! Thank so much!
