Fairly new RVers with a 36' DP, no toad; going to take our first extended road trip ( 16 days & nights) beginning Sept 27. Will head out of the SF Bay Area, over the Sierras and on to Winnemucca. From there, we want to head north to Couer D'Alene ID.
I was looking at Google Maps and it looks like we can take Hwy 95 north from Winnemucca, clip the SE corner of Oregon and then on up Hwy 95 through ID into Couer D'Alene.
First question: what is Hwy 95 like between Hwy 84 (around Ontario ID) and Lewiston? It looks on the map like this is a valley between two mountain ranges and might be reasonably easy travel
The reason I ask is... my wife suffers from motion-sickness pretty easily.
Plus - she doesn't drive the rig (and has no intention of driving either) which would be one way to alleviate her queasiness.
I don't want to spend 16 hours of driving 25 mph in nothing but twisties and undulating uphill / downhill. We do prefer to 'see the scenery' instead of just grinding out the hours / miles on a superslab.
Neither of us has ever been into that area of the US so we have absolutely NO idea of what to expect in regard to road / travel conditions. We aren't locked into this route but will be making a loop from ID back through WA and OR and back to California over the course of the trip. Don't want to double-up on any stretch of road if we can avoid it.
PLEASE most wise and experienced RVers - share some of your well-earned knowledge.
