Give the folks some idea of what you are driving / towing ... and how much mountain driving experience that you have ...

Are you looking for scenic, fastest, shortest, state and national parks, interesting historic sites along the way ... give us some idea of what "turns your crank" ... and how big of a hurry are you?

Looking for anything scenic, traveling in a 2010 class B plus BT Cruiser, I have two weeks to make it from PA to Tacoma. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Since you did not mention it, I will assume that you have mountain driving experience ... there is probably a 50 - 50 chance that you will encounter some winter weather as you cross the Rockies or Northern Plains during Novemember.

There are many things to see between Chicago and Tacoma ...

National Parks: Yellowstone and the Tetons, Glacier, Black Hills, Badlands, Devils Tower, Custers Last Stand

Historic routes: Oregon Trail from eastern Nebraska to Oregon, Lewis and Clark Trail from St. Louis (or Sioux City, IA) to Astoria, Oregon.

Other interesting things: Multnomah Falls (beside I-84 in Oregon), the Cody Museum in Cody, WY

Can you run the hose hookup and your water pump at the same time if it provides better water pressure

I have asked about traveling to Fort Lewis with great responses from Pa. Does anyone know if I will encounter freezing weather on I90 all the way to Washington traveling from 15 oct to 1 nov.

I'm not sure if you will be in winter weather all the way but you are pretty re assured of hitting some. I live in northern Oregon and we are having a very early fall/winter. They are predicting snow in the Cascades within the next couple of weeks. You will probably hit snow on the Cascade Passes. The do a good job of keeping the major higways clear though so you shouldn't have any problems but might encounter some slight delays.

If you are bent on I90 NorthD Mont and Wash you have the possibility of snow. Watch the weather and the ten day. One day drive south then west bound and then up I5 on the east will have the least winter weather. You have plenty of time either route.
