Thanks everyone. It looks like 58 or 46 is the preferred route. How much further is it to go north to 46 and then backtrack to the 101?


From 58 north on 99, it is about 15 miles.

Thanks for all the replies. I am leaning towards taking 58 since it is a shorter route and also because of the comment stating that 46 has quite a bit more traffic.

Have you checked 58 on Google? From Barstow west to McKittrick is good road. West of McKittrick it is mostly two lane road with sections that are more curvy and some up and down. I certainly would drive it with our 40' bus towing if I wasn't in a hurry. I doubt you would really save that much time over using 46. On a good spring 58 is a great wildflower route.

I have looked at Google and it does look like a fair amount of twisty curves on 58. We head to Pismo Monday morning and I'm still undecided. I'm now liking the looks of the long straights on 46. I do appreciate all the suggestions and recommendations. Monday after my coffee I'm going to have to make a decision!

Go hwy. 46. Easy route for RV's. There is a McDonalds on the edge of town for breakfast with parking on the right side of the hwy 46 with room for a big RV parking.
