Being familiar with the Portland area, since we have spent 6 of the last 7 summers visiting our son and his family there, I am curious on the specific route you took to avoid Portland. If you picked up US-30 just south of Longview and drove down to I-405 what would have taken you into downtown Portland and a nasty mishmash of exits and entrances to get on to US-26. If you went west on US-30 to SR-47, then SR-47 south from Clatskanie, is a very tight twisty drive down to US-26. Not a route I recommend for RV's, although we have driven it in our 29' Class A.

Hey Al & Sharon,

We took U.S. 30 from Rainier, OR to Burlington where we took Cornelius Pass Road 8 miles over to U.S. 26. We took U.S. 26 west to OR 6 over to OR 47 in Banks. Then it was an easy route south on OR 47 to OR 99W.

I'v driven Cornelius Pass Rd several times in our Toad & found it very steep and narrow with some very sharp turns. I assumed you wouldn't take that route. That is what I get for "assuming". :)

Al & Sharon, you have to remember we are 10 feet shorter and 10,000 lbs lighter now in the Class C, so we're a bit bolder. Well, Linda is a bit bolder - she's doing all the driving. :)
