I saw someone else post in this forum some time ago about needing some help with planning a cross-country trip that stayed at the lowest altitude possible. I'm in a similar situation, so I was hoping you might be able to help me, too. :)
Due to chronic ear problems, it's pretty miserable (and dangerous) for me to be at higher elevations (even 4000 ft. is bad for me); my ear doctor has recommended that I avoid flying and high elevations altogether, and no cocktail of drugs--trust me, I've tried plenty--alleviates the problems.
That said, I have an important event coming up in New Orleans the week before Thanksgiving. Amtrak's route from Los Angeles hits elevations of 4000-5000 ft multiple times during the trip, so I really don't think it's safe for me to consider it.
Does anybody have any advice or resources that might help me get there safely? I'm not really comfortable driving through snow and ice, either; not sure if that will be a problem that time of year.
Thanks in advance for any advice you might be able to give me! :)
