HIHI...

I'm going to be relocating from Michigan to California in late March/early April to be a caregiver for my Mom. My current plan is to ship my car and drive the smallest rental truck I can get - prob 10'er (not moving much as this is a temporary move).

My question - I'm taking the southern route to avoid mountains as much as possible (Tx, NM, AZ, CA). Am I going to miss the bulk of the snow in those states by traveling at that time?

This will be my first trip on my own and I'm kind of scared.

Thanks in advance for any help

Where in California are you going? Its a big state ..If your going into Northern CA you'd be better off to hope on I-80 and just pay attention to the weather....Give yourself lots of time...
Good luck

Going to Southern California via southern route (Il, Mo, Ok, Tx, Nm, Az, Ca) - Avoiding Co, Ut - been there, done that, won't do it again

By late March/early April the I-80 route itself might be snow-free. The southern route almost certainly would be - barring some freak weather event. Why not plan a route using both of them, and closer to when you actually drive check the existing snow conditions and decide based on that.

If you run into snow, check into a motel, order a piizza, watch TV. The roads will be clear in 12 hours.

Did you already move? I'm willing to help you drive your vehicle and the moving truck from Michigan to California. I moved to California with my wife and I need to get my motorcycle. I will share gas. Let me know at rml2000@yahoo.com
