Since your destinations are North... I would NOT go south

We will probably drive the southern route coming home, but will the direct route be too dangerous for the end of October?
. Just watch the 6-10 day forecast
and choose rte accordingly. for FAST I-80
. I spent 7 yrs daily driving some on the WORST of I-80 (WY / NE) I lived through it. WARNING they close the roads these days in bad weather, so carry some CASH for room.
I have run I-90 several times in Winter with MUCH better conditons than I-80, Nice thing... weather is not PROLONGED (often only 8-12 hr delay at MOST), forecasts CAN BE very accurate, and routes variable. (I-70, 80 90, 40)
