20 east of Yuba City is very curvy with no shoulders. Made it in my 32' Class A and will never do it again.
Maybe take 20 to 16 to Woodland and then I-5 to I-80. Nothing wrong with Donner Pass.

Help please...

Route 37 is a few more miles but it's flat and quick. It looks very out of the way but it's a straight shot to the interstate and the bypass so it's direct. Plus you avoid the hills. I wouldn't take route 20 in an RV.

Ok, to the point...leaving Northwest Cali this morning, destination SALT LAKE CITY, UT. I will be driving 101S to CA20-E to Interstate 80E and have two concerns..
1.travel across the Sierra Nevadas and gas stations along my route.
I have tracked weather conditions via CalTrans website and using their live webcams. Road conditions seem to be ok. I have called CalTrans only to be directed to a recording which say there are no restrictions. Can anyone confirm please? I will be travelling across late afternoon or early evening today with my class c. I have all season tires (NEW) but I don't have chains.
2. looking at google maps and google earth this route seems pretty desolate (?) in many places. I do not travel with a GPS, well except for the one on my phone but not counting on cell service anywhere along my trip. Should I be concerned about not being able to find a gas station in any particular area along this route for extended distances?
And THANK YOU, THANK YOU in advance for your help!
Just a little more than two weeks ago I left southern Oregon and picked up I-80 in Winnemucca, NV. Stayed on that until in eastern Nebraska. The road was good but did have rain, snow and heavy winds. Not enough of any of those to worry about. Just slowed down a bit and stayed (mostly) in the right lane. There are a gazillion places to get fuel on that route and my thought would be to fuel up in city areas because the cost may be less and the fuel may be fresher.

Crossed over Donner on Jun 27 about 1987 and hit a freak snow on roadway. Traffic stopped before top,they looked around and decided it was fresh snow that would melt rather quickly under tires and it did. Stayed in the tracks until we got down low enough for snow line to quit. It wasn't deadly snow,but it was snow. So expect the unexpected and travel with good supplies,to be prepared for whatever. Hours can make a difference of go or no go. It's an adventure,don't be afraid of it.....

Thanks everyone for the helpful information and advice

No snow at all on the pass...YAY! It was a beautiful drive and happy to have had the experience. Finding a gas station was not a problem just as some of you suggested it would not be. A successful trip! Can't ask for much more than that.

You did it! Good for you!!! Hope the anxiety issues have greatly diminished and your next traveling will be easier on you. Don't stay so long next time and you won't have to gather as much courage to take off.

I use the App "Gas Buddy" to find low cost fuel. The App can be programmed to look for gasoline or diesel. A class "C" can get into most any gas station.
