Trust me, Dan.. as a completely inexperienced driver in snowy conditions, I will NOT be driving I-80 if there's a storm. No no no. We'll be adding more days to the trip to ensure extra time in case of storms.

I know.. this worries me as we've never made a trip of this magnitude before. My original route was thru Albuquerque, then thru Flagstaff, AZ and up UT to meet I84 in ID, but over and over again on various forums on various websites, I was deterred from this route, and was assured that staying on the interstates (I-25 to 80 to 84) will be safest, as there are excellent DOT teams who clean up major weather catastrophes on the interstates within hours. I know there will be snow in NM and AZ, with the elevation pretty steep as well (and as I'm told, not great interstates for snow clearance in case of storms). However, once we get all the way to Amarillo, I will be looking ahead to see any forboding weather systems in either direction, so we can make the safest decision. Thanks, shallots!

Veg grub in DFW area?!

This may be a hopeless query, but are there any vegetarian/vegan joints around here worth stopping at along our road trip route thru DFW?

If any of you are left scratching your heads, we'll settle for a really good pizza joint or Thai/Chinese/whatever.. Please help!

Hello all!

Taking a road trip this Dec from New Orleans to Portland. After getting out of Texas, we'll be travelling on the I-25 up thru CO, then up to I-80 thru WY, then I-84 all the way to Portland and are wondering about any veg-tastic places along the ride.

I know this spans all the mountain states, but any help along the way would be great. I believe we're probably going to be staying the night in Colo Springs/Denver roundabout area, then stopping off in Cheyenne for some grub(?), then staying the night around Ogden/SLC, UT, then Boise, ID enroute to Portland. Any good joints in these areas (or anywhere in between?)

Thank you for any help!

Hi all,

My boyfriend and I are taking a road trip to Portland (staying 3 days) in mid December, and we're looking for some wallet and palate friendly veg joints in the area. I've heard that Portland is THE spot for veg eaters, and I've seen a few highly reviewed places while perusing the 'net, but if anyone could give us the lowdown on some REALLY GOOD eats, that'd be awesome!

Also, any advice on places with really good drinks (best breweries, best signature Portland drink, etc..) would be appreciated as well! Thanks in advance for the help!

Road Trip from New Orleans, through Eugene, Corvallis, and to Portland

Hello all,
I am a New Orleanian trying to plan a road trip with my boyfriend and two insane dogs this winter. We are interested in moving to the Portland area for graduate school and want to do some road trippin to check out the goods. I would like to travel up through Eugene and Corvallis as well, as there are some great universities in these towns. I have been doing my research, but we've never driven in the snow (much less a possible snow storm while driving through the Rockies), and we're going to be driving a Nissan Versa there. Maybe not too smart to drive from New Orleans to Denver, then on to Portland?

So the other option is for us to drive through Texas, stay in Tucson or Phoenix, then drive up Cali into Eugene, then Corvallis, then Portland for a few days. This tacks on a few more hours to the trip, but I think it may be more wise to do this than drive in a tiny car in the Rockies.

If anyone can offer any advice on this, it would be greatly appreciated, as we are road trip neophytes. Thank you in advance!
