Driving Directions


These are some of the cities you will pass through along the way. Some larger cities like Portland or Eugene are not really covered. You can get a AAA guide to cover them. If a city like Silver Lake or Beaver is not listed, it is because the town is so small it may have so few services that no guide is needed.

If you have more information to add, please contact us. We will be happy to add the information to the site, if applicable.
