best of luck! Dress super warm, there's a lot of that white stuff! And if you are looking for camping there are some great spots in Eastern Oregon near Crater lake, and just inside Nor. CA you need to stay at on the Smith River (also a great road). The other not to miss part of nor cal is hwy 299 and 96 (which is off of 299)- also great camping although they did have a LOT of fires last year.
