Routing: need your experience - Las Vegas to Portland

routing: need your experience - las vegas to portland (or)

hi: we are currently in las vegas and travelling north to portland. typically when we migrate south for the winter / north for the spring we take a route using the i5 or the 101. but this year we decides to make a stop in las vegas.

so what is the best route to portland?

looking at google maps: has us taking the 95 to reno, then the 395 to klamath falls, then the 97 to Eugene, then i5 to portland.

don't know this route and particularly interested in your experiences. is there likely to be any problems with mountain passes?

thanks for your help - always appreciated.
cheers, peter

If weather is not bad I take 95 towards Reno, 395 to Susanville the cross over on 44 & 89 to Mt. Shasta and pick up I-5. The route you list should be OK but I'm not familiar with the 395 north of Susanville. My maping program suggests Reno to Portland the way I do it.

I have taken both and both are just fine. However, I might add that if you take the Klamath Falls route, continue on until you get to Bend, then cut over on the 20 to Sisters and then 26 over to Salem to the I-5. This route runs you by some absolutely gorgeous mountains and it's a great road.
