I'm a newby on here and was wondering what route would be best for me and my partner to go from Seattle, Wa to Austin, Tx in early to mid December. We will be moving there and will only have us and our dog and 2 cats in our crossover SUV, that's brand new. I am able to drive in snow but would like to avoid as much snow as possible. I know there's no way to avoid snow at all during the cold season but, was wondering what route would be best? Time is important but, if that includes a TON of snow, we'd rather go a longer way to avoid the mass snow areas.
Also, we plan to make a few stops in Oregon to see family before moving and will be staying in hotels along the way for sleep. We both can drive but, my partner would rather drive in daylight and I can drive nights...
If anyone could help us and let us know the best routes to get to Austin, it would be much appreciated!
