Have 1 week to do a move for work last week of March or first week of April

My stops are
1: Oklahoma city
2. Omaha
3. Fargo

Any advice for this route during that time of year? All I can find is it being a coin toss of it's a boring drive or it's a shitstorm with late winters. I wouldn't mind stopping to see some things along the way but not seeing too much outside the main cities and doubt I'll have too much time after driving 7-8hrs a day. Trying to stick to the roads with the most traffic of salt trucks as a precaution.

    I'd say check out Kansas City, MO. It's my low-key favorite small city in the US.

      Oh, if you're gonna spend a day in Omaha, try the zoo. It's one of the best in the world since a lot of rich people live in Omaha.
      Sioux Falls is a quite nice very small town in South Dakota. A college town. Might be a reasonable lunch stop as you're going through it looks like.

        Is it even thawed out up that far in late march? lol, can't imagine lions and tigers and bears would be down for freezing temps

          No idea. The zoo is open though, and it's a big zoo. They must have some adaptation for the winter.

      It's a possible stop depending what the weather looks like the week before, KC and Sioux Falls are going to be in between stop overs if the weather is shit.

      get bbq in kansas city, gates or something. I didn't really like okc or Omaha. The old market in omaha or bricktown in OKC are kinda neat to walk around. Try a runza or Caseys if you haven't been to one

      Not too interested in BBQ since it's the only interesting shit in Lubbock, if the weather / roads are bad then I'll stop but really trying to avoid snow storm frickery.

        Kansas City BBQ is better than everywhere in Texas and Lubbock has shit BBQ compared to Austin or Lockhart

      There's a couple of decent indian casinos in Oklahoma with good restaurants and cheap midweek hotels, I'd stay there, maybe the Hard Rock.
      Other than that, there's not much. Also are you deliberately avoiding interstates?

      Really? I thought it was a shithole.

      If you're driving a moving van you'll be going slower than the rest of the traffic and stopping more for gas. Count on an 8 hour drive in a normal car actually taking 10. If you're driving a regular car you can probably make the trip in 2 days instead of 3.

        I'm staying on the interstates anon. I'm hitting the 40, to 44, then 49 up, to the 29 to fargo.

        Driving a normal car, not renting a uhaul that will cap out or be bulky. My relocation package basically covers it all, jobs are in high demand for some reason guess the oil and trade with Canada spicing things up there. Just sick of all the Californians who moved in and not going back to a hybrid work. I'll do it for a bit but this is just a job that requires residence within Fargo (I some legal bs), even though I go full remote after 3 months.

        The Zephyr goes through Iowa and Nebraska though, not North Dakota.

        Ah well but at least I get to Montana and PNW pretty easily and that's really all I care about.

    i would just comfortmaxx this one and get through as fast as possible. not everything has to be SighSeecore. it's a mindnumbing boring route and you won't want to see any big cities because you will just be stuck in traffic. especially in january when snow and ice are a possibility.

    find the comfiest rest areas, get a playlist of songs and podcasts, chat with a friend on speaker. just get through it. don't overthink.

      At least I have the California Zypher line stop that can route me to some cool scenery or down to Chicago for a weekend. Also massive pay raise, less crime, city doesn't shut down when Texas Tech plays, no 110 summers with 90% humidity for weeks, and oh yeah better pay with lower rent. I'll take 6 months of winter to pass on texas summers and winters where it can be 85 for a few days then wake up to freezing cold temps. At least I generally know what to expect.

      i met a girl at a coffee shop then when to a punk show while a stayed a weekend in omaha, city is pretty bleak when its cold though

      Yeah wish I could have delayed a month but it was then or basically never. Would have liked to spend a week traveling in may where I know it will be all thawed out.

      Decent paying jobs, surprisingly amount of jobs
      Low unemployment rate, like under 2% so can find something if I need it assuming things go bust
      Clean city/downtown, seriously boggles my mind how clean it is and no tents in sight
      Moderate summers, winters suck but when don't they at least I get a proper amount of snow that doesn't shut down the state due to 1 snowflake
      Low cost of living, compared to what I would need to pay to be in a safe area I am saving about 350-400 a month
      Very few to no west coasters moving in because "muh cold" feel mostly like a non issue since electric coats exist and WFH by winter will be fairly easy

      I've been a number of times, I plan to stop over and get something but I am not really going out of my way to get KC bbq again if it means risking a worst snow drive.
