Ok so me and my girlfriend are moving back to maryland from Northern California "east Bay Area". We drove I 40 the southern route to get in the winter to avoid snow, my question is what's the quickest route back? And the easiest? My girlfriend suffers from anxiety disorder and does not do so good with mountains. Lots of people suggest taking i80 does anyone know how this route is? How does it compare to a freeway? Thank you for anyone who can help it's appreciated!

Best Answer:

Kevin: The BIG mountains are a few hours. at the start. Suggest you leave late in the evening . JUST drive. while it is dark.
After Salt Lake they are not much. I 80 is a Freeway road is wide. it is not some goat trail through the hills. Similar to I 40 as far as roadway goes.

Explore some of the other routes. You have to figure the compromise of time distance and mountains.

Was the mountain issue "Snow" and accidents in winter?

Much less any route in the summer.

Other answer:

Kevin:
Google Maps will show you the quickest route. I-80 is an interstate. Interstate highways are big and wide and mostly straight. They are not narrow curvy mountain roads.

Seriously dude give her some unisom or Dramamine or something and just go… or get a little DVD player and let her watch the notebook

OK,SO, give her some hefty doses of Johnny Walker and take any route you wish.

And THANKS by the way, for leaving California.
