Question ID: 768752
If you often drive the roads of the U.S., are a trucker, or just want
a challenge, can you help me with the following? -
(And if you're a trucker, do you ever drive from Seattle to
Brownsville? Want some extra cargo? This is not a part of the
question...just a side issue if synchronicity leads me to a truck
driver who can take more goods...)
What interactive site would help predict driving conditions for a car trip
scheduled for around the second week in October from Seattle, Wa. to
Brownsville, Tx? Or just give me links to mapped out suggested roads to take. 

Also, To consider adding are any comments on areas to avoid and
suggested routes, with alternate route recommendations, should the
weather have a possible
effect regarding this car trip.

Extras not required but if this is your expertise:
I'd appreciate the addresses of several sites
but any additinal personal feedback and comments on driving such a
trip would be appreciated... Such personal feedback is not required,
just curious if someone might have experience and is answering the
major query.

I am considering a move to that area due to their lower cost of living
compared to Seattle's high cost of living during my retirement years.

Following this trip, if Brownsville is satisfactory, then a friend
will replicate the trip down there bringing my personal belongings to
move into a place. He will fly back and leave some rental truck
So driving conditions for the last part of October to November would
be also greatly appreciated. For the second trip, I could understand
sticking to I5
but it is a sort of wasted, out of the way, but perhaps safer drive
the take a left at Calif? Haha!

More related questions will be posted.

I am in awe and appreciation of those that take on these tasks! I
tried my self and found no such site easily.

(My homework because I respect people who try on their own first to
answer questions: I entered various search terms couldn't find such a
site easily. I
believe in trying first and doing as best as one can with such
Further phone homework that I tried:
I called AAA and the young woman said
such a trip should have no problems.
I did not get the idea that she checked past records of
weather conditions for the roads we might travel during any months or
seasons of the year. 
She was young and probably just wanted to
encourage us to travel w/o really researching this.

I don't want to drive in snow, get stuck in some small town, and not
accomplish my goal!
/bow to those who help  me!
These categories are very weak.
Science? Not strictly speaking. So I changed it.
I hope it reaches someone out there who cares or often travels these roads...
There is no answer at this time.

I won't attempt to answer your question, but I can offer some
thoughts. I have driven from Texas to Idaho twice at different times
of the year and using different routes. It is difficult to plan a trip
and have good weather all the way especially in early spring or late
fall. The southern route you plan for your friend is certainly longer,
but will probably be the best chance of moderate weather. However, the
portion of the trip through Nevada, and New Mexico can be pretty
tough. Even West Texas has very changeable weather. I also suggest
that you think very hard about Brownsville. I don't doubt that the
cost of living might be less than Seattle, but I sure wouldn't want to
live there. There is quite a war going on along the Texas border these
days and the illegals appear to be winning.
