Traveling Monday Washington State to Texas Advice.

With the recent snow in the mountains near Spokane I was wondering if I should travel West of the rockies? Oregeon,Southern Idaho,Utah,New Mexico, then on to Texas. These roads are not main arterties but appear to be lower elevations.
My navigation says Idaho,Montana,Wyoming,Colorado,Kansas,Okalhoma then Texas.

I'm leaving this coming Monday.

Also should I travel with my thermostat set to like 40 so nothing freezes while in higher elevations. I am planning on sleeping in the Stream along the way.

Thank you,
Shane

Are you in a rush?

Although statistically, we are passed the worst of the winter, It snows in all of those states. ( And gets icy ) I would be checking the local weather reports and road conditions a few times a day. I would be prepared to get stranded along the way, and I would not travel with any water in the lines, or tanks.

You definately do not want to go to Oregon and then over the Blue Mtns into Idaho. Here's my suggestion:

195 from Spokane to Lewiston, Idaho
95 to Ontario, Oregon
I-84 to I-15 Salt Lake City
I-15 To Las vegas
Hwy 93 to Phoenix and I-10
I-10 to Van Horn-I-20
I-20 to Arlington

That will at least keep you out of as much snow as possible this time of year. Made that trip many times and until it gets into April, it's still a crap shoot. Good Luck-

Pap

Just ended that trip today in reverse, TX to eastern Oregon. Hit low temperatures of minus 6* in Utah and plus 3* in Nevada. New Mexico temps were about 12* to 18* for lows. Two days of travel saw no temps above freezing. Roads were mostly clear except for the last 100 miles with snow. Should not be a problem if you carry no water in the trailer. Just keep an eye on the weather and be willing to accept possible delays.
As for making the trip in three days on roads that are not main arteries............... good luck with long days of driving.
