So, I eventually have to bring my car to Vancouver, and what with one issue and another it looks like it won’t happen until the first week of November. (Not really my first choice just extremely unlikely to happen before ) I am thinking of going through the US just for the cheaper gas and less mountains incase of early snowstorms. (No guarantee I won’t have any but I will take my chances further south than through the Canadian Rockies). My thought is
Thunder Bay–Bismarck ND, then through Montana Idaho Washington state up to Vancouver. I am not sure of the terrain, and will the 8 hour drives on a map be 8 or more like 10 realistically. I can drive 12 hours a day, although I am most likely travelling alone (or if not as the only driver) I have done marathon drives before. I am not looking for sightseeing or “fun” along the routes, just getting from point A to point B
Would I be better off doing Bismark to Missoula, Missoula to Vancouver?
Or Bismark to Billings, Billings to Spokane Spokane to Vancouver?
I am interested in discussing the Canadian routes too, but it is not as likely I will do this one.
Tell me o travellers of the highways of northwestern USA.
