    I'm heading from Iowa to Seattle on I90 next week to get a truck from Kenny and then on to Albany,OR for more parts. From there I want to go to Boise,Id, google maps wants me to go back up in to Washington, stay on the interstate and make a big loop. But it looks alot closer to shoot across to the east/southeast on state roads.

    Not knowing the area at all, I got to thinking there could be some mountains that would really screw me up. Pulling a trailer in the winter/spring in the mountains is something I'd like to stay away from as much as possible. I'll proudly wear the sissy badge with pride[​IMG]

    Any help?
    Thanks,
    Brett:D

    Hwy 20 thru Burns is a good route but takes 5 hours from Bend to the ID line. Couple big hills but nothing major.

    On the way out keep I-80 to I-84 as a backup route in case the weather thru WY/MT isn't doing well. You driving a gas or diesel truck? I can give you most of the cheap truck stops along I80 or I-90...
