    Taking the S85 on it's first long trip from La Jolla to Seattle.

    Staying with friends in Los Gatos (San Jose area) and planning to make the leg from there to Vancouver WA (Portland area) in two easy days.
    Where is a good place to spend the night along the way? I don't need anything fancy; just clean.

    If I stay in or near Grants Pass, I might take the detour to Crater Lake. Can I go up there and back from the Grants Pass Supercharger?

    Or should I just stay in or near Mt; Shasta? I know it's more like halfway than Grants Pass.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Sleep whenever your tired near a supercharger, I've been finding that it is easiest. The Mt. Shasta supercharger hotel is nice enough. Corning hotel is less expensive. Haven't been to Grant's pass yet.

    Crater Lake is not that close to I-5.

    Food -- stop in at the many good restaurants in Ashland if you want something non-chain.

    We stayed at Green Springs Inn in the mountains above Ashland. The have a Free J1772 charger in an old gas pump out front. Great food. Family owned.

    When I did Crater Lake, I stayed overnight at 7 Feathers Casino and range charged. Crater Lake RV Park is on the way from 7 Feathers to Crater Lake, if necessary. I burned a lot of miles going up to Crater Lake (almost 8000 ft elevation) but gained a lot coming back down.

    I stayed in the hotel at the Mt Shasta Supercharger. Nice, quaint place with half decent food and beer in the bar. An easy evening. Can't comment on the other places.

    The Red Lion in Redding has a 14-50 they'll let you use for free if you stay the night. Call ahead and make sure it'll be available.
