Route from FL to WA avoiding snow?

Our son just told us he will be deploying to Afghanistan for the third time in May. We need to get from FL to Ft Lewis WA in April... avoiding snow... Any thoughts on the best route? We were looking at I-10 all the way to AZ & then head north but I have no idea from there... Not the most direct route but might be easiest as far as weather.

By April you probably won't have much of a snow problem in the Northwest. I think your route to Arizona is fine. I would then head to Las Vegas, Reno, up through Oregon via Hwy. 97 then cross over to I-5 via Hwy. 58 to Eugene, OR. From there you can take I-5 all the way to Ft. Lewis without problem. Check TripCheck - Road Cams, Road & Weather Conditions in Oregon - ODOT for pass information on Hwy. 58 prior to leaving Reno area. There is some construction on Hwy. 58, but shouldn't cause you much delay, maybe 20 minutes at most.

Hope this helps.

I migrate from S. TX every April to NE WA. Have been many different routes, and have very little to no snow problems. watch the weather reports and you can dodge the storms, be flexible. I avoid CA.

I would work my way up to I-80, them I-84 and I-5 to Fort Lewis. See if your son can arrange for you to use the FamCamp there at Ft. Lewis as a place for your RV, should you be making the trip in or with one. (Your signature does not indicate any RV data)
