Wondering if these two routes would be sensible during mid-December. They were given to me for a summer trip, and due to weather differences, of course, I want to ensure we can avoid (if we can) any routes that may not be the best to travel on during the Winter.
Here is what I was given from a previous thread:
"As for routing if you drive, your best (fastest) route out would be to go up through Winston-Salem to I-77 north to I-64 west to St. Louis, I-70 to Kansas City, then I-29 up to I-80 which would take you the rest of the way. Coming back you could, for only a very few more miles, drop down on CA-99 to CA-58 east at Bakersfield to I-40 east all the way to Memphis, use US-78 to cut down to Birmingham, and pick up I-24 east which will bring you out on I-95 a bit south of Fayetteville."
We like the southern route given for the return trip, because we would like to stop in Phoenix, AZ on our way back briefly.
Any advice is much appreciated!
