Oregon to Indiana

when will the best travel weather in Indiana be for 2013, early spring, late spring, late winter, April?, May? we'd like to go as early as possible, but realize that the rockies will be a problem if there is a late snow melt.

As of yet we have not traveled east of the Dakota's and that was in the middle of summer... we'd like to hit Indiana as early as possible next year. would like to avoid hail and wind storms if there is a better time?

We went east on I-90 in late April of this year and hit one minor snow storm when we were over the 4800 foot mark of the divide pass. It was the worst part of the route east and it was basically a non event. If you are traveling from say Eugene to Fort Wayne you would be traveling about 200 miles to the south of 90 so it should be even better for your travels.

Stay low. I have tried to backpack through Northern California in July and hit too much snow to continue when I got above 6,000 or 7,000 feet. Stay low and you'll be fine.

I suggest mid May. The upper Midwest will be just beyond the last normal freeze and the tornado season will still be a few weeks out. Most of the hail and heavy weather will be towards the south of Iowa & Nebraska. The snow in the mountains will be still a problem at higher altitudes but not like it is in March! All this comes with a possibility that tornados can happen any day of the year etc. but your chances are best in May!
