I am planning a trip from LA to Denver in early Jan 2009. I was thinking 5 to 7 hours drive everyday, so I plan to go to Phoenix, Albuquerque, and then Denver. Is this route reasonable? I have never drive on snow or icy condition since most of my driving experiences are in California. Is this route less dangerous than the I70 cross the rookie mountain in winter?
I will drive a 2000 Acura TL. What should I prepare before the trip? Thanks for any advice.
