Help Requested for Winter Cross-Country Driving Move

Jump to last reply

I could really use some advice about planning a cross-country driving route for a move this month. My family is leaving in 10 days, and I've been trying to talk them out of it due to weather concerns, but so far they're staying firm.

So...with that in mind, I'd love some suggestions on best routes from NY to Southern CA during winter. This isn't a vacation, so sightseeing is not that important (though they're open to seeing interesting sights if they happen to be nearby.) But they're also not on a deadline, so safer and more likely to avoid potentially bad weather areas is preferred over the fastest route. I guess one benefit of no time issue (other than the extra traveling costs) is if they do encounter something unexpected, they can lay low at a motel for a bit.

I've traveled a lot, but never done a cross-country drive. I'm hoping I'll get some good advice here. Would greatly appreciate thoughts and suggestions! Thanks!
