San Francisco to Lancaster, Ca.

I will be traveling in April 9th Tuesday to the Good Sam Samboree in Lancaster at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds.

There are two routes I am considering... Or alternate if you have one.

I-5 over grapevine to SR 138 to Lancaster... 355 mi.

I-5 to SR-58 thru Bakersfield to SR 14 south to Lancaster.... 349 mi.

as you can see mileage is n/a. I've never been on SR 138 don't know
if it's hilly or what. Good road or if it goes thru towns, stops etc.
Any one have opinion or info?

I have been on SR 14 know it's two lane and
pretty flat drive. Done this route several times.

Opinions on which one you'd take or if you have an alternate.
Need to stop at Flying J/Pilot or Wally World etc. on way there or
any other suggestion? Can't register until Wed April 10th.

I have 35' 97 Allegro Bay. Not in a rush, just want nice easy drive.

Tks, GrammaDy

We'll be friends until I'm old and senile, then we'll be new friends.

If it were me I'd take 58 out of Bakersfield. I've done that route many times just to bypass the upper portion of LA basin. There is a Flying J a few miles north of Bakersfield on HWY 99. You could cross over from I-5 to HWY 99 on 46 or one of the other state highways and be north of the flying J. I'd suspect Wally World is available in Palmdale or Lancaster.

I would also vote for the 58, we've traveled that road and it is good.

I'd take 58 unless you are going to be there are traffic times... at 5pm you don't want to be driving across Bakersfield to save 7 miles
