I'm driving with my dog from Boulder,CO to Berkeley,CA on Dec.11 and going the southern route to visit friends along the way in Santa Fe,NM, Phoenix,AZ, and San Diego,CA before getting to Berkeley.
I would like advice on tires. I have studded snows, but think I should NOT have them on since I'll be going the southern route. However, returning on Jan.2 I will probably take the most direct route which will involve going thru the mountains. Should I have snows on then?
Also, I would love to share the driving and gas expenses with someone needing to get from the Bay area to Denver/Boulder.
I'm grateful for any and all advice. Any takers on ride sharing? I'm a female, young, retired teacher used to traveling alone, with my dog, and with others.
