40'thru Las Vegas

Cindy here, driving a 40' DP w/ toad. Heading north from Williams AZ thru Las Vegas toward Oregon. Any "best route" to get through Las Vegas (on a Monday)? Your advice is greatly appreciated.

Cindy, I drive Casa Grande thru Twin Falls, ID on my return to Canada every spring(not this year!!). I just put Williams to Twin Falls in Google maps and the route it "spits out" is what I would use/recommend.

I would bypass as much of LV as possible. Not sure where you're going in Oregon (east or west).

We live north of Seattle, and we take the Twin Falls route to Vegas, which is down the east side of Nevada on hwy 93. If I recall, you can skirt Vegas northbound by hopping on I-11 in Boulder City, cruise through Henderson on hwy 582, turn north on hwy 612, take a right at Nellis AFB on Hwy 604, catch I-15 northbound, then hop back on hwy 93 north. That'll run you all the way up to Twin Falls. Once you get to Twin Falls, take a left on I-84 westbound, and you'll and up in Eastern Oregon, crossing the Snake River near Ontario, OR.

If you want to head more for Central/West Oregon, you can take a left at Ely, and head through Reno. Head in to California for a bit through Susanville, then take a right on I-5 by Mount Shasta.

The wife and I have taken both routes, and both are pretty standard, and some really nice scenery. But depends on your tastes.

Traffic is heavy on weekdays from about 7 am to 7 pm. Not much of away to avoid it without going out of your way. Do you know witch Hwy you are taking north out of Vegas US 93 though Ely or US 95 though Reno? You can P.M. me for more info.

We drive thru Vegas all the time, even at rush hour. It's not that bad. Just stay in the number 2 or 3 lane. About ten miles of traffic and you're done.

Just spent a week sitting in Vegas at the Thousand Trails park on Boulder Hwy. Only 1 time did we have traffic issues, on 215 there was an accident and we were stuck for about 30 minutes crawling slowly to get past.

Don't know if it is worth going around Vegas, or just grin and bare it.

Stay in the middle lane and go for it. Hwy 93 from Kingman turns into I-11 and the I-515 and then HWY 95 north without any exits. Some construction but nothing major as of now. If you need fuel probably the easiest would be the small truck stop at Rail Road pass Casino just past Boulder City. Once out of town the next fuel is Indian Springs (small town 44 miles or Beatty (100 miles). Lots of others but harder to get in and out of. (IMO) Check out Death Valley Nut and Candy in Beatty. (old fashion candy, Ice cream, Casino and fuel)

Don't worry about LV after 10AM and before 4PM the freeways are lightly traveled unless it's a holiday. I travel from Pahrump (55 miles west of LV) through LV all the time going to Yuma and points south, plus I go there all the time for VA medical appointments. I sometimes go through LV on the way north if I want to visit Twin Falls in Idaho. Many times through LV towing my car. Three directions. Easy breezy.

If you like adventure, Pahrump route is kinda fun as you travel through several interesting towns on the way to Oregon...my home state. Pahrump has 22 RV parks, several of them right at casinos. The one I stay at, Preferred RV Resort, has an indoor pool, pool room, card rooms, occasional dinners in the main cafeteria, a Jacuzzi, carpentry shop, etc., etc..

Then traveling north there are many small towns with RV parks that are fun to stop at. I usually end up in the Walla Walla valley with it's upscale wineries all over the place. Just north of Oregon.
