We are a family of 3, 2 adults and 1 child age 3 with my 2 brothers and nephew joining Us. We are planning a road trip going from Austin to Denver on December 26th and returning on Dec 29th, I'm looking for advise on that, we are renting a Ford Explorer for our travel and I'd like to add that I have never driven in snowy or icy roads, so base on that and our plan below, I would like your advice, thanks
We are planning on leaving Austin on Tuesday Dec 26th around 7 am looking to drive all the way to Denver making some stops just to get some food, put some gas, etc. We are thinking to get to our final destination in Denver by night. Next day on the 27th, We've planned to drive to Frisco and expend the day there, then by night we'll be returning back to Denver. Next day on the 28th, we've planned to drive to Vail and expend the day there and returns by evening. On the 29th would be returning back to Austin.
Any suggestions like public transportation that we can use or take instead of using our SUV or advice would be really appreciate it, mainly because we want our trip to be safe for my family.
