I'm planning to drive from Seattle, WA, to Houston, TX, in January 2016. I have a flexible schedule and budget, and will be traveling alone.
Here's the route I've mapped out, day by day:
Start: Seattle, WA
Finish: Houston, TX
- Day 1: Portland, OR (visit friend here)
- Day 2: Medford, OR (visit parents here)
- Day 3: Napa Valley, CA
- Day 4: Pasadena, CA
- Day 5-6: Phoenix, AZ
- Day 7: Flagstaff, AZ (see Grand Canyon)
- Day 8: Albuquerque, NM
- Day 9: Amarillo, TX
- Day 10-11: Dallas, TX (see the city)
I am looking for thoughts/advice on:
Driving conditions during this season
Suggestions to improve the route - if it is too rushed or I should change cities, etc.
