I'm on the fence this year (leaning towards not going).
I drove last year (through OR, ID & central NV) and was a good time. Though I wish I would've met up with one of the CA Caravans. That was a rural stretch through central NV tho. 100+ miles b/w fuel stops and 0 food options
If we can get a good group from WA/ OR, I might reconsider. I do recommend going through CA though.
