When I was driving truck a few years ago, I hauled a few loads of apples from Yakima to Phoenix. The route I always took was:
(ased on starting in Wenatchee)
US 97 to Bend, OR (6:00 hrs / 310 miles)
Hwy 20 to Burns, OR (2:45 hours / 138 miles)
Hwy 78 to Burns Junction, OR then Hwy 95 to Winnemucca, NV (4:30 hours / 220 miles)
I-90 WEST to Hwy 95 (Exit 83) (1:30 hours / 95 miles)
Hwy 95 to Vegas (9:30 hours / 490 miles)
Times and distances are from my old driver's log books. Take the times with a grain of salt as my truck was governed to 65 mph.
The jaunt through Nevada is quite boring without many areas to stop so plan accordingly.
Driving the Excursion, pulling the snowmachine trailer, to Anchorage on 7 AUG (SWMBO following in her Subaru). Then returning from Anchorage on 23 AUG (just me, in the Ex. Leaving SWMBO and daughter so she can start school). THEN, driving back up, pulling the vert, OCT 23. 2500 miles each way.
Not really what I wanted to do, but the only way I could figure out how to get all my vehicles and toys up there.
But, to get back to the subject of this thread, it won't be hot!!! :lol:

Everyone in my house is still working and keeping their sanity. There are still way too many people out shopping who really don’t need to be. The same people have trouble with the 6 foot rule. My son had a couple and their child come into his store for just a air freshener.
Hope everyone stays...
what are some good mustang parts stores in the Portland area. I know of rose city mustang, and Aldridge motorsports(was told a decent mustang parts supplier) are there really any others.
also know about all american classics up in vancouver, just I don't have much day time to check these...
