Hi, I am hoping to leave Los Angeles for Vancouver in the next 10 days on a roadtrip. The trip was originally planned for December but had to be postponed due to bad weather. I would appreciate any advice or suggestions regarding this drive that I am about to embark on. I am very worried about the drive due to road & weather conditions although the forecast for the next week is encouraging. I have no interest on taking a scenic route this time as I would rather get to destination as soon as I can on safest route possible. I will be travelling with my 12-yr old Golden Retriever to go visit with family and am praying that we get there safely and hopefully in no more than 3 full days of driving ( 8-10 hours ), if possible. I assume I will have to rent or buy snow tire chains & have also been told to take anti-freeze with me, therefore, any advice on these would also be much appreciated.
