Trying to get home to BC has proven to be a challenge, weather wise. The drive up 395 in California was good...then it went bad...the forcast on the weekend for Reno was snow then improving. We had some dinner and got all jumpy feeling, so left town Friday night. Went about 20 miles up the road..wake up to snow snow snow..and ice...and had that for 100k's..then Susanville..where the forecast had been easing by 11am...then, all of sudden..extension of late winter snow storm. And a road block by CalTrans and CHP, 10 miles west of Susanville. Got snow tires? as they are checking...and are you in 4 wheel drive? yup...4hi....Great...carry on.

And another 100k's of huge snows and no traffic. Fabulous drive.

WOW, when will it end?
I see you have a winch in case you get into trouble, good thinking!
Hope you make it back to Penticton OK.

Monday night, I had nearly 100 miles of black ice from Chemult to Burns, Oregon. Sure was glad I didn't swap out the snow tires last weekend when it was sunny and 60!

I don't foresee any further issues. My only gripe now is that the brew places are all closed.

Sometimes you actually don't have to buy that tool from Walmart... Because you actually have it for this trip.

Good job. Ready for the conditions.
We got 6 inches last night south of Reno. It has been snowing several nights this week. We really need it.
Besides 4wd and a winch, the weight of an RV really helps the traction.
I have driven that road a lot in all seasons. It deserves some respect.
