Highland, TX (Houston) to Coos Bay, OR: 2420 miles on I-10/I-5 and hwy to Coast
Coos Bay, OR to Highland, TX: 2420 miles.
4820 miles/60 MPH = 80 Hrs driving time
80 Hrs driving time/6 Hrs per day = 13.3 days
2 weeks or so driving each way plus 2 weeks in Ore & Wash = 6 weeks
If it were me, I'd stay a month in Ore & Wash and stay on I-10 & I-5 in CA going north and take I-80 from Sacramento to Laramie, WY to US 287 to Ft Worth, TX and I-45 to Houston going south.

(the max loaded 2006 F150 5.4L V8 would only go 55 MPH Westbound on I-80 in Wyoming)
