    Hi all,

    I am hoping my luck in finding great websites continues with this site.

    I will be driving from NYC to Lake Tahoe, CA in early to mid January with a new 2003 Jeep Wrangler. Just me, a lot of gas money (18 MPG on this car), and about 7 days time.

    I was thinking I-80. Mistake? Too risky that time of year, and maybe take a longer, less snowy route?

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    You actually might be best off with a northern route.

    I spent three years living in Minneapolis and I noticed that during the coldest time of year (Late December-Early February) it rarely snows. When I asked my friends about it, they said, "Yep...too cold to snow!"

    Explore the different routes on the map and keep your options open. Then keep your eye on the Weather Channel or in the last few days before you leave. Don't be afraid to take I-90 across, especially if the temps are in the teens or below.


    p.s. Also keep in mind that you'll be in a brand new Jeep, snowy places have good snow removal, and there are rest areas on the interstates with weather reports.

    Default Not crossing Siberia

    Hundreds of thousands of vehicles make that crossing every day in the winter. Use the common sense driving skills earned living in NYC and you will be fine.
