Portland Or to Pahrump Nv
We will be helping friends move from Portland Or to Pahrump NV in early January 08.....we have concerns about winter traveling. Our first thought is to travel I-5to Bakersfield Ca and then across to Pahrump, that means crossing the mountains in southern Or, the other route is through Idaho & Utah..Any thoughts would be appreciated

This is probably a case where you'll have to wait to see what the weather is when its time for you to hit the road.
Going down I-5 will probably be your best bet, there is a chance you'll run into snow on I-5, but there is also a chance you'd see snow by going through Idaho. Unless there is an imminant storm when you're leaving, its not going to make much sense to add a couple hundred miles to your trip by going all the way over to I-15.
