Coming out of Eugene OR to St. George UT ?????????

Last year I took the 58-S (Williamette Pass)to the 31-S to about Lakeview. (This was in Early Nov) At Lakeview I took the 140-S down to the I-80. I encountered 3 passes all of which had "FRESH" snow. (I'm traveling in a 40ft MH pulling a 30ft car hauler trailer) Needless to say it was a white knuckle drive. So this year I'm considering the following route. Same a before i.e. 58-S to the 31-S to the 395-S down to Standish (just below Susanville CA) Continue on S on the 395 to Reno then pick up 50-W to the 93 on in to St. George, UT. Would this route avoid most passes and potential snow? If not, I'm open to your suggestions. Thanks to those that reply in advance.

RE: Tent Camping Forum

Great photo of Cinder Cone. A number of years ago I worked as a campground host at Lassen NP. There was an encroaching fire that year and we had to evacuate all the campers and visitors to the Park. The closure only lasted a day or so, but it's frightening. I hope the current wildfire doesn't destroy the campground, and spares the Park. Thanks I camped at Eagle Lake, since the campground closest to Cinder Cone had no water (they were working on the pumps), so I stayed outside of Susanville, very close to where the fires are now. I have a number of friends and colleagues up there now feeding the firefighters. It's such a tragedy.

RE: Reno, NV over to I-5 north

Thank you so much for all the wonderful replies! We go to the Oregon Coast annually, but planning the route is getting trickier each year. We like to drive up western NV mainly to avoid as much of CA gas prices as possible! We could always just go I-40/58/I-5. If we go the Reno route, I just thought driving down I-80 to Sac was backtracking, so wanted to know about the other routes. But it sounds like I don't want to drive 20 from Reno to Yuba City. I may end up driving 20 from I-5 to 101, but I'm planning to come back that way to show more of the coast to a relative who is joining us on the return home. What about Hwy 36 west from Susanville. Anyone know how that route is for a motorhome towing? Last time we went this way, Hwy 44 from Susanville had just reopened a day before we got there. CA Traveler...I remember hearing about that fire. What an awful experience! I can imagine how conditioned you are now to think about that. MarkTwain...I didn't know people still use CBs. We have a portable one. I'll have to hook it up and see if it still works. I'll be checking all the fire and road condition websites. Thanks again! Buy a Cobra or Midland CB and a 5ft. Wilson antenna with a magnet base so you can place it on the top of your Cab in the center. Buy a cheap CB but make sure you buy a Wilson 5ft. antenna. Portable CB's generally do not have the capability to reach out any real distance to talk with other people. You want the capaility to reach out in the 1 mile range. Approximately $150 or less will get you all set up. Go to a CB shop so they can adjust the antenna to get maximum distance for good contact with others.

RE: Reno, NV over to I-5 north

In May 2018 I drove 44 out of Susanville to old station and then 89 north and it was a nice wide two lane with wide shoulders most or all of the way and no hair raising curves,drop offs or severe grades all the way to I-5 that I recall. I was only towing a 5X8 U haul but would tow my 28 Foot TT over the same route with no fears. I do remember one very short steep grade just outside of Susanville heading west on 36 or maybe it was 44.

Reno, NV over to I-5 north

Soon I will be going to Oregon, entering via I-5 northbound. I know that the wildfire situation can change every day. I just want to be prepared with alternate route choices in case any roads are closed on my planned route, which from Reno is up to Susanville, then 44 and 89 to Mt. Shasta/I-5. So as an alternate, from Reno, I'm looking at I-80 then exit onto Hwy 20 across through Grass Valley, Yuba City to Williams/I-5. I'd like to know if this section of Hwy 20 is RV friendly. (MH and tow car in signature) Also what about Hwy 36 west from Susanville to Red Bluff/I-5? I've done another route before that is on my list.....north from Susanville, 139/39 to Klamath Falls then 140 over to I-5. I'm fine driving on 2-lane roads through the forest, sweeping curves, a few passing lanes, some inclines/declines. But I don't like driving on the edge of cliffs or heavy duty switchbacks. (Though I've done some of both!) Thanks for any help!

RE: susanville, CA to Bend, OR

Hope you don't mind me adding on a question. Some years ago I drove this route. From Susanville I took 395 to Alturas, then 299 over to 139. Is there any problem with 139 between Susanville to Canby? Seems like I was advised not to drive that section of 139, but maybe there was construction or a fire that year (I can't remember).

RE: portland to reno advice

I like this route it is Reno to Medford so just reverse it. Reno To Medford Oregon Via Susanville & Mount Shasta Reno to Hat Creek then onto I-5 near Mount Shasta 395 N, 36 W, 44N, 89 N & I-5 N.

RE: portland to reno advice

Here is another variation: we've taken 139 south out of Canby through Adin. (Great sandwiches at the general store in Adin!) 139 takes you to Susanville, paralleling 395. I am pretty sure it is a little slower than 395, but very scenic and empty.

RE: portland to reno advice

I drive this route twice a year in the fall and again in the spring to Southern Arizona. We take I-5 to Hwy. 58 in Eugene to Hwy. 97 south to K-Falls then Hwy. 140 to Hwy. 39 which changes to Hwy. 39 in CA to Canby, CA catch Hwy. 395 south towards Susanville then continue on to Reno. Roads are good, now that they have done some repaving and very little traffic. Some grades on Hwy. 395 between Canby and Susanville, but not difficult. Other routes listed above are options as well. Just depends on what you want to see along the way and how far out of your way you want to go to get there. Hope this helps. John x2.
