Hey guy! First of all, let me thank you in advance for helping me in here. I'm from Singapore, and this will be my 2nd time visiting the US. However, this will be my 1st time visiting the US during Winter.
I will post respective questions regarding different states in the respective forums.
Over here, I'd like to gather some info for my drive from Portland to Red Bluff. It will actually be a 1 night stopover to San Francisco. Would you recommend stopping over in Red Bluff or somewhere else?
Please try to bear with me as some of the questions I ask may seem stupid to you....but coming from Singapore where we have no winter & no snow.....:(
1) On google, it says the drive from Portland to Red Bluff is 7hrs. Is that accurate? What are the driving conditions like during Jan from Portland to Red Bluff? Is it congested? Weather? Is it rainy? Will it be snowing?
2) I have some friends who told me that it will be snowing big time in Jan. Is that true? If so, will the roads be covered with snow hence causing some delay in my trip? Is it safe to drive? I have checked with Hertz and they said their cars are installed with All Weather Tires. What time does it get dark? Will it be more dangerous if we drive in the dark? (Difficult to see road conditions, blindspots etc...)
We're planning to stay at the Best Western Antelope Inn (Red Bluff)...any comments?
Thanks so much for your precious time in helping me plan my trip easier. Appreciate it lots!
