We arrive at SF airport this friday 2/22 around 12:30, will be renting a car then driving to Northstar -- kinda crazy, but that's the plan. Wondering about best driving routes and somewhere roughly halfway to stop for a quick bite to eat & groceries.
Also advice/ideas about driving conditions re: snow, chains, etc would be helpful. We are renting a "small SUV" because we hope/assume it will have 4WD in case we need it for snow, mountains. Other general Northstar information or advice also very welcome! Thanks.
