Hi, all,
A friend & I are driving from Philly to Oakland & are concerned about the weather... it's not an option to delay the trip.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to marry beauty with safety?
We're planning on doing the trip pretty quickly... ~8-10 hours per day with one day of sightseeing.

Thanks in advance!

My repeated answer to the last ten posts of "I am traveling to X during the winter month of Y":

Watch the weather channel a few days before your trip, then plan your route accordingly.
Mods should sticky that.

8-10 hours per day is alot of driving. How long do you ancitpiate it'll take to arrive?

I'm from Philly originally, and now live in NYC. Philly is relatively cold this time of year, think anywhere from 30-50 F on any given day. So bring a heavy jacket, a hat and some underarmor
