Iíve been reading as much info as I can on this forum regarding the trek and mountain passes. We will be driving a 16í Penske truck and towing my Nissan Leaf utilizing a car carrier. We will be leaving 1/29 with the goal to arrive by 2/4. I start my new job 2/7 but need to arrive prior for HR related stuff.
It seems like route I-90 will be the best bet. Recently (12/20/2021) we drove from Seattle to Leavenworth via I-5 & U.S. 2 round trip. While it was a beautiful drive it was questionable at times going through Stevenís pass as it had snowed the night before. We were driving a Ford Ecosport 4WD. The pass was fine on the return trip and was just a little wet. This experience makes me question attempting the Snoqualmie Pass as well as other 2 (unofficially 3 other passes) with the Penske. Is their an alternative route if it snows? It looks like I-82 to I-84 to I-5 may be a viable option.
Friends and family were recommending I-40, I-10, or U.S. 66. From reading the post of others on here it sounds like those routes will just add time, miles, and further opportunity for poor weather in states that are not equipped to handle said weather.
Any input or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
