I am planning on driving from Fargo ND to Seattle WA next week.
My plan is as follows:
leave Wednesday from Fargo, ND - stay in Billings, MT Wednesday overnight
leave Billings Thursday - stay in Seattle Thursday overnight
I am estimating 12 hrs of driving for each day. Is this a fair estimation?
I haven't done this route before.. however, I have driven from Winnipeg, Canada to Vancouver, Canada in 2 days at a similar pace.
My concerns are about the mountain passes in Montana and Eastern Washington. I have been looking at the state webcams and it seems to always be snowing in the passes. I don't have snow tires (all seasons) and I have never used chains before. I am hoping the weather will be much better next week? It will be May 1.
Do you think I can do this drive?
I am driving a 2dr. 4cy. Honda Civic.
thanks for your advice.
