During a recent road trip, the occasional perils of driving across Wyoming in the winter were highlighted for us. A good vehicle, some contingency planning, and a little situational awareness went a long way toward keeping everyone safe.
Our road trip took us across Interstate 80, which runs west-to-east across southern Wyoming from mile marker 1 near Evanston to marker 402 at the Nebraska border after Pine Bluffs. We were in Utah heading toward Cheyenne and met with weather all the way across. Two days of delays and a lot of ughs later, it was apparent that experience with this kind of thing really paid off.
