I appreciate the insight, experience and advice provided. Sounds like a lot less of a vacation and more like a stressful endurance run. I think we'll pop in from the north border to the redwoods and then sneak back out that way. My last trip was to SF 6 years ago, that was to be at UCSF hospital and none of that trip was enjoyable. Once I'm actually retired and have nothing but time on my hands I can waste it at 55 but on the back roads and trailer whatever I want and not risk getting rear ended or worse. It was bad on I-80 years ago but I want incumbered by a trailer. All in all probably a better reason to change destinations. Thanks all
