Unhappy Carpooling from Cali to Sheridan (OR)

Hey there! My hubby was moved to FCI Sheridan in Oregon & I was wondering if anyone visits from Cali. Never been there, and mapquest says its a 14 hr drive (from LA at least). Not sure if I can handle that alone, but if I must, I must

Any how, I was hoping to go sometime in January or as soon as I'm approved. I guess I might be jumping the gun a little, but I'm going crazy thinking about not being able to see him since he's that far

I just wanted to say that I live in Oregon near Sheridan and drove to LA and back recently, it took longer than 14 hours. But there was "weather" in the passes and this time of year there may still be weather issues.

Default Long drive....

Have you considered flying? I would think that you will spend way more on gas driving than you would on a plane ticket. I'd be checking with Southwest Airlines, Expedia, etc., to see about that. I'm sure that you can rent a car for little or nothing as well.

I wish you the best if you do decide to drive

Amtrack is another possibility. My husband used to be in Lompoc and we took the train from Oregon back and forth - but then you have to rent a car when you get here (same with the plane) to get to Sheridan itself. Train goes to Salem. From Salem to San Luis Obispo is 24 hours each way. But you can sleep, read, see a movie, drink, eat, walk around, meet new people, etc. Sometimes Amtrack has special rates. 2 fer 1, etc.
