Routes to Casini from I-5

Please Oh Please DON'T try I-580 through Hayward to Oakland and over San Rafael Bridge from I-5 unless you're planning to do it at 10 AM or 3 AM... Heading through Oakland and Berkeley and over that bridge during morning rush hours in SF Bay Area (6AM through 9AM) or evening rush hour (2 PM through 8PM) is just going to be maddening... The easiest route is going to be Hwy 12 west from Lodi to connect with I-80 west, and then exiting I-80 west onto State Rte 37 from Vallejo to 101.. For most of its run, Hwy 12 is two lane and 55 mph and relatively straight and level... It's a better road than they show on the map.

And unless you enjoy swerving to avoid idiots, narrow pavement and turns tight enough to read your own bumper stickers, DON'T take Hwy 116 from 101 through Petaluma to Guerneville.. Going a few more miles north on Ste Hwy 101 to "River Road" exit west from Santa Rosa area will be faster, smoother and straighter...

Absolutely, River Road is the way to Casini from 101. Car navigation systems tend to suggest 116 because it is a so-called highway, but the reality is anything but.

Conversely, I don't believe that 580 is anywhere near as scary as people suggest as long as you pass by between the morning and afternoon commute. Check the map. The distances aren't great and the traffic moves along at the speed limit or better. Sure the rush is congested, but at other times the many lanes quickly disperse the traffic and increase the speed. There is a little congestion at the merge in Emeryville but it is short lived.

Without looking at a map I can tell you that your 'best' route is I 5 to Highway 12 (Lodi) west (a good 2 lane road but lately a rash of head-ons) to I 80. West on I 80 (I should look at a map here but don't have one) to Highway 37 west (Vallejo) to 101. North on 101 to River Rd (just before Santa Rosa). West on River Road to Casini. The I 5 to 12 will take you around the Bay Area traffic (it is a mess) then most, I stress MOST important don't take 113. It is narrow and windey. And do not travel Highway 1 with a trailer. It is a very pretty drive but you won't see the view for focusing on the road and the side of you rig. I'm sure others will offer their suggestions to but this route will get you around the Bay Area and AVOID 113.
I hope I haven't confused you.......too much.
Neil.

We've already swooped in an taken Goin's site. It was our original spot, and we're looking forward to being back in the neighborhood.
We gave up 1B...a little too far from the maddening crowd.
Looking forward to seeing the shiny sea of silver!
Janet

Aholman~Do you mean 116? River Road is the way to go and either 580/101 or the 5/12/80/37/101 depending on time of day. Thanks guys, really helps to know what/when to avoid.

Hey Janet, welcome to the neighborhood!

Hey Janet, welcome to the neighborhood!
Did I say 113? I mis-spoke...mis-wrote I meant 116. DO NOT take. As for 580/101, it has been a while since I have been on those roads so depend on the other 'experts' advise. It is a nice drive if you can avoid the tail lights. I will not need to drive 12 but did bi-monthly a long time ago. It is a good road but a popular short cut from I 5 TO I 80. I will be doing the 50/80/37/101/River Road route. Do have a good trip.

Neil and Lynn.

Dave, You are right of course but these things never seem to happen when I need them too.

Hey, Kevbo,

I have a music CD that you are going to love. (That is if you haven't already heard it). Maybe it will be a good pre-empter to the movie. We'll see.
