California Desert to the Oregon Coast
In this video, I give you a look at our route north and west through California and up into Oregon and over to the west coast. The journey takes us from the Mojave desert over the tail end of the Sierra Nevada through the Central Valley then up passed Mt Shasta, over the Siskiyou Pass, into the great state of Oregon.
Once in Oregon, we follow the Interstate 5 for a bit before cutting over to the coast landing at Salmon Harbor Marina in Winchester Bay.
Via photos, video clips, and dashcam footage I give you a look at our various stops along the way. We traveled just over 900 miles in around 2 weeks stopping to visit several friends along the way.
In between visiting friends, we overnighted for free at the Tachi Palace and Seven Feathers Casinos and the Olive Pit. Most of our trip we dry camped which saves us a fair chunk of money over needing full hookup RV parks.

We stayed at the Olive Pit about a week and a half ago. Nice and quiet even though it was sort of “in town”.
Having some serious travel/coast envy. Great video.
Ray i did read that 101 is open where the slide was but its down to one lane going thru there and its gravel.
Good to hear
Great travelogue as usual Ray. I went South that way but made the mistake of coming up the east side of the Sierras last month. Ran into rain, snow and high winds. It was an adventure, but one I wouldn’t repeat!
