I don't think I 5 qualifies for our name

A Road Less Traveled
But here I am, on I5 heading south as it is the most direct route. This is also a first. I'm towing a vehicle, alone and trying desperately not to get myself into any situation where I might have to back up. That would be a disaster. I would have to unhitch and then rehitch, both which might cause me pain.
My first day was fine, my stops were all in rest stops where I had no problems. I found a lovely campground south of Roseburg Or at the 7 Feathers RV Park and Casino and my last hurdle is getting gas.
Where to stay Day 2 is another question. I can go south to Corning, CA where there is an campground or two with pull throughs, but after that is little to pick from until after I get past Sacramento. Thats a long drive. I guess I'll just see how it goes. Past Sacramento is a long one day drive.
BTW, I dont think that I do badly towing, I followed on RV towing a car for about 30 miles and his/her foot was on the break every time we came to anything that might resemble a downhill grade, and this was farm country not the mountains. I wonder how long his/her breakshoes last. LOL
