I wonder if people who encouraged the OP look at her tentative itinerary.

As much as I like to do road trips, I dunno about covering that route in March, doing 8,000-mi through potential winter storms.

Thanks for your input, everyone. I'm rethinking the idea. It probably is too early in the year to expect trouble free driving. Among the other options is to take the course in October. Or not at all. Or do as Gumby suggests.

Mods, please feel free to close the thread.

Just saw this thread, but I agree with your decision.
From mid-May through mid-October, it would be a no-brainer for me to make that trip, but mountains and snow are a rotten combination, as are prairies and snow.

We have done several long road trips incl. 2 cross-country. I love long trips.
Fly in March. Rent a car closer to NH and drive to see relatives.
Do a proper road trip between May-Oct. There willl be a lot more national parks, sights, etc open and the nasty weather will not be an issue. Much more enjoyable. And take your time, 4-6 weeks, stop in all the places for as long as you want, instead of rushing to a deadline.
