My biggest suggestion is to be off the road and stopped for the night before the sun starts to set. The sunset will blind you.


If the OP has a month to make 3000miles, he should be able to leave at 10am and be in by 2pm with several non-travel days mixed in.

If you are foolish enough to plan your travels through the Golden State, expect to pay $4 for fuel and with a 42' coach some of the roads are restricted, such as Hwy 1, along the coast and 49 through the Gold Country. Here is the map for reference....Dennis

On the other hand, if you avoid CA you will also avoid some of the most beautiful Country on this Planet. $3 or $4 is really not going to make much difference in your retirement plan. I have traveled CA S to N and N to S and I have bitched the entire route. Well, the entire route expect for the places I parked along the way. CA coast is something that should not be missed. The OR and WA coast (in my opinion) is even better but there is nothing about our CA travels that I have ever regretted. If you can't afford the fuel you really can't afford to RV!

To each his own. The ONLY beautiful places along the California coast is from Hwy 1 and that can't be seen from a 42' coach. Driving a 42' coach thru Laguna, Newport or Huntington just ain't gonna get it, IMHO...Dennis

Since I have driven must of PCH 1 in my 40' with towed I would disagree. Some of that area means you have to park the RV and make the drive in the tow. I don't find anything wrong with that either. Some folks don't like CA. I do when it's on the way to another State as a destination.
