I am driving with a friend and four kids from Portland Oregon to Las Vegas at the end of March. I have been researching different routes to take and it seems like the shortest route is to take Hwy 84 along the Columbia River to Idaho and then go from Twin Falls to Las Vegas on highway 93. I have never driven this route and have no idea if highway 93 will be clear or what the geography is like through the area. The simplest route seems to be to go all the way down I5 to Bakersfield and then cut across to LV, although I know this is longer it may be easiest. I drove up from LV via Reno through Kalamath Falls 2 years ago and "hated" the roads- 2 lanes and very scary. Can anyone offer any suggestions or advice? Thanks!
