Oregon to Southern California

Go Ducks, indeed. Its a great ride, but remember that winter storms are quite an inhibitor. Give some thought to staying with 1-5 and cross the costals to Florence. That will save you some of the touristy traffic. Great spots south, Point Reyes, Stimson Beach, Monterey/Carmel, the famous highway bridge near Big Sur. San Luis Obispo is a great layover spot. Things get busy again as you approach Santa Maria and Lompoc. Great RV park in Santa Barbara/Ventura then its turn East at Santa Monica and the Arroyo Seco is not far. Plan to miss the rush hour traffic at San Francisco and again south of Santa Barbara, same advice when you head North.

Our plan was to cross over to the coast from Grant's Pass so that we save a little bit of time and hopefully miss some of the coastal storms. Ideally we'll catch a lucky break and have clear skies during our journey. We are considering an overnight stay in either Paso Robles or San Luis Obispo and definitely spending a day in Santa Barbara. Thank you all for the great travel tips and Happy Holidays. -Go Ducks!

What a great trip, we have pulled it many times and look forward to doing it again soon. All the places mentioned are great and so are Winchester Bay in Winchester Oregon and Cape Blanco state park, North of Port Orford.

Crossing over at Grants Pass is a good plan.

101 is closed at Hecta Head. Road said to have sunk and impassable. We just finished a trip to coast and had to detour around it. We had to go back to Florence back inland to Veneta and over to Corvallis and then down HWY 20 to Newport to get to our destination.

it will be a slower go but far more interesting. i have made this trip once a year for the last 20 or so. you might want to consider getting off of the coast once you are closer to SF as getting across the golden gate and through SF traffic is pretty intense. far too many places to suggest camping but as already pointed out, check in advance as during the winter months lots of closures. the Humboldt red woods are one of my favorite stops and the numerous tree walks that are available are interesting and amazing.

happy travels, go ducks.
