Hi everyone! I'm happy to have stumbled upon a great website to better prepare myself for this awesome journey ahead of me! At the end of this month, I will be traveling from Lansing to Seattle with a friend of mine.
A few things that I already have planned:
We are renting a car, already booked for Monday to Saturday.
We are looking to take I-80 towards Salt Lake City and then up to Seattle from there.
We only plan to drive around 7 or 8 hours a day so we have plenty of time to stop if needed and explore the cities we find.
I suppose my questions focus mainly on 1. Is I-80 a better choice? Going on I-70 would be an option too, and I would be able to stop in St. Louis that way. And 2. How bad is weather predicted to be on either of these highways and when we reach the mountains?
I'd also like any recommendations for cool attractions along these highways. Anyone who has made this trip, I would love to hear how yours went!
