Good point, I might look at doing that and then doing a 2nd one down south to see the other part of the family maybe later in the year when temps start to drop a bit....bookman1995 said:What he said.

Seriously, from about Cedar City UT to Victorville CA you'll be broiling in 110-degree+ temps. Then you're dealing with LA traffic, which is no picnic until you get to Santa Barbara.
You are of course welcome to head my way, and I'm definitely down to meet up with you. But if it was my trip, I'd say cut off the southern part and head west instead from SLC through Tahoe and into Cali. Then southwest to San Simeon or Carmel and back north on Hwy 1 to Portland and points east. Better weather, plenty of awesome sights along the way, plus you won't have to deal with quite as much of that "I'm sitting underneath a giant hairdryer for 700 miles" feeling.
Sounds good. I should have my laptop, (and maybe internet) at any of the night stops so I will do that. Also When it starts getting closer I will get the plans more ironed out as to when and where....RiverWolf said:Junction City, Oregon here.
60 miles inland from Florence.
101 is great at times...
Sometimes just bumper to bumper RV's and no view of coast anyway.
Not much from Calif border till Florence.
Bandon has been fun when not fogged in.
Great from there to past Newport and beyond aways.
Thing is, unless you are a ocean guy, the backroads on the river valleys are the best.
PM us when you get close.
thanks that would be great.Dragoon said:Let me know when you are due in the very south, San Diego area, I would love to escort you into and out of our fine city here. I am sure there are many other riders on this forum that would join me.
Nice plan, hope it works out.
