Driving from Eugene, OR to Tuscon, AZ in October.


I'm trying to make my summer 2017 volunteering plans in Oregon. Im not sure of road/weather conditions if we head for Arizona in October. Is that too late to head south?  We will probably take 1-2 weeks to drive it. 

Thanks!

Oregon doesn't get a lot of snow…so if you're heading south through CA and then east October is probably just fine…but if you're heading east through Idaho and then down via CO/NV then I would check detailed historic weather before going that way…we had snow in Idaho Falls the winter we were there by mid to late September IIRC.

I would definitely recommend the CA and then east route that late in the year.

I agree that going south to Ca. then east through Nevada should not be a problem. We have done that in November with no issues.

October is a great month to travel. We spend the month of September in the Sonoma and Central Coast wine regions and then head for Mesa the first of October - - a quick 3 day dash across the desert. You have lots of different ways to go, enjoy the trip

We have traveled from NW WA. To NV & TX & LA. I like hwy 93 out of Twin Falls Id. It is high country but unless a bad snow storm it is great & the shortest to L.V. One pass out of Ely NV but never had a problem with it. Last year we left home about the first of Jan & ran into some snow in Jackpot NV but it was any problem. We have a 43' motorhome with a flat bed trailer with a car on it so we are 65' long. Hope this helps. B.
