Rt 1

Has anyone pulled a 5er on RT 1, along the west coast? If so, would you do it again? We're seriously considering a trip along that route, into WA, then turning east to ID.

Route 1 or 101?
If 101 I have not but I know several people that have, none of them have sad anything bad.
Are you going to run 20, 26 or I-84 east to Id.

We haven't looked at a map! Central ID will be our destination - whatever the route.

20, 26 or I-84 east to Id are all good, is just that some have more road construction than others.

Hope you're planning it for next year. Kinda late to be going up 1 this time of the year and then heading east into Idaho. Might run into some bad weather.

Generally it is not bad before Thanksgiving after that it becomes day to day.

But then you can use this to help, I do.

Have you done that RT 1 along the coast? If so, got any suggestions re towing?

As I posted above I have not towed but lots of guys I work with have, two of them were over there in July of this year and they said it was good fun.

I plan on making it over there in May or June with the FW.

I was on 101 in Or. from Coosbay to Lincoln City about two years ago and saw nothing at that time that would be a problem.

One suggestion I have is if you plan on staying some place for awhile that you get some No Damp or Damp Rid but it in a pan of some type and put it on the counter.

Lots of RV parks, some are within walking distance of the Pacific.
