Just traveled Spokane to Fernley (Reno)
Just info. Took 395 out of Spokane south, headed to Fernley NV. Overnighted it in both Pendleton OR and Lakeview OR. Hwy 395 was good and we were just going to take it all the way, but we cut off at Lakeview on 299 to Cedarville, CA, then down 447 to Fernely. We took this route on the advice of a local who told us the interchange where 395 hits I 80 in Reno is still all screwed up due to 3+ year construction project and is tight for big rigs and has very heavy traffic most hours. Our new route was a bit slower than 395 due to it's own road construction but it wasn't too bad. Flag car and worthless Cal-Trans "SLOW" guy with his sign ate up about an extra hour. Both roads are in pretty good shape...not as good as 395 but very do-able (if you don't count the way-too-many cattle guards). All thre are two lane but very little traffic, especially 299 and 447. Best of all, 447 goes right into I -80 at Fernley by-passing Reno altogether. Two pretty good downhill grades. The first one is 6% just before you get to Cedarville and is about 5 miles long. The second is further south on 447. It's about 7% and about 6-7 miles long. It's curvy but no switchbacks or hairpins. Just take is slow for the sake of your brakes. Other than those two grades pretty much flat, booring and hot, but hey, it's Nevada. Additional notes. AT&T cell service is pretty crappy in southeast Ore, northeast Ca, and northwest Nv. Lots of long stretches without cell service on all three highways. Long stretches without services so keep your fuel level good. Two pretty good parks - Wildhorse RV & Casino in Pendleton, and Juniper RV in Lakeview. We pull a 40' FWTH with a HD 2500 Dura/Alison.
