X continent

We would like to travel from DC to California. If we take the southern route how early can we travel in the spring and not worry about freezing?

Which southern route? I 40 or I 10?

Both well used. Now up to 250 nights camping and 70,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

Route

Either route. Is one better than the other?

I 40 runs through some high country. We found snow in May though it was not roadside.

here is an elevation profile https://www.roadtripamerica.com/foru...and-California

I 40 in March can be troublesome in the East. We have come back from FL in mid March in blizzards in both 2018 and 2019

What exactly is springtime?

You can definitely run into snow or ice in the Tennessee/North Carolina mountains. Not someplace you want to be caught in a winter storm.

By the end of March you ought to be able to avoid/anticipate rough weather. Freezing is the least of my worries on our four southern trips from Maine. We can deal with that. Bad weather sometimes means finding a place to hunker down before the end of March.. It has been a motel a couple of times.. There is one in Wilkes Barre that we are kind of fond of at fifteen degrees.
We may do I 10 this spring at the beginning of April. We have been to Tuscon in April for the magnificent blooming of the saguaro cacti.
