if i was going leaving the west coast in march or april, I'd head north to the Transamerica as the weather warms up - it will be very hot and very humid by the time you get to, say TExas and points east. Plan it out, avoid the heart of the rockies if you do that until the threat of snow in high elevations is over. La Veta pass in colorado will avoid all but 25 miles of mountains, but its like 9400', so plan ahead. You could stay south until east of new mexico, but I;d head north son - its hot in Texas as early as mid april.
you'll likely get good tail winds then on the TA (if going west to east) too..
