Western Washington to Tucson, AZ

We're leaving Jan 01 for Tucson, AZ and think we have a decent trip planned out.... but....
This will be our first long trip (1600 miles +/-)

Doing all the normal pre-trip things, tire pressure, TPMS system, checking & double-checking how we have things stowed, have the axle weights from our shorter trips this summer & ride heights of the truck recorded and planning on a run across the scales the day before we leave to do a final check we have things loaded/distributed correctly.
Have downloaded the Copilot navigation by Trimble to help make sure we know about low clearance issues and hopefully a bit of help with route information. Vehicle is being serviced ahead of it's normal interval just to make sure it's 100%.

This said, it's a foolish person who thinks they have it ALL figured out?!

Any suggestions, advice, or comments are welcome!
Thank you,
Chris & Teresa + Naia

Make sure you carry chains for all vehicles. Oregon requires them if you are traveling on the interstate highways. If you don't have them already, go to Les Schwab, get the right size, then return them April 1 if you don't use them. That's what we did when returning from Tucson in January a few years ago.
