Hey, I am trying to determine which route is safest to travel this time of year. (Yes it is essential and I will have preapproval for crossing the Canada/US border.) I'm hoping to get to Wisconsin (Beaver Dam) as quickly as possible as my father is in hospice care. Probably will be resting in my vehicle on the way. Given current world situation I plan on stocking a cooler so we don't have to stop at restaurants or anything except fuel (and coffee!). But I've never done this drive before and I want to make sure we arrive safely, most importantly!
I will be leaving from Chilliwack, BC, Canada and heading to Beaver Dam WI. Google Maps is showing me 3 route options...
#1 down through Washington, Idaho and along the lower half of Wyoming and up through Nebraska and Iowa.
#2 taking I90 through to Billings, then down through South Dakota, onto Hwy 212/34, which turns back into I90.
#3 taking I90 to Billings, onto I94 through North Dakota, Minnesota and back to I90.
I've never driven through any of these states before, so I would appreciate any wisdom you can share so I can arrive safely to be with my family.
