I'm driving from Houston to Seattle after 10 days. This is my first long trip in the US and I'm very excited and a little bit stressed about it.
I'm driving my Mazda 5 mini van (4 Cylinder) pulling a 5*8 trailer with very light load, I will be with my wife and 3 years old son and we have time to spend up to 6 days on the road.
I read too many threads about the best route, could be : (Houston, Dallas, Wichita, Denver, SLC, Seattle). or (Houston, Amarillo, Denver, SLC, Seattle)
Indeed I'm highly concern about my 4 cylinder car strength and its ability to make it with the load of he trailer through the Rocky's mountains and the hills around Denver and SLC!!
I'm trying to find another simple plain route to be at the safe side; I could come up with this route and I appreciate if you guys can share your thoughts, suggestions with me:
Houston - El Paso through I 10 (Stop)
El Paso - Phoenix through I 10
Phoenix - Las Vega through US 93 (Stop)
Las Vegas - Twin Falls through US 93 (Stop)
Twin Falls - Seattle through I 84, I 82, and I 90.
Thanks in advance.
