    Is the 395 north of Fontana off the 15 a truck route?

    I want to cut some miles off reaching the 58, and is chains required? I don’t have an updated atlas.

    Yes, it is a truck route. I don't know if chains are required to go west over Tehachapi Pass to Bakersfield.

    Yup all the way to Reno. unless your pullin doubles and there's that white stuff in Bishop, then you have to jump over the hill to NV.

    Yes 395 to 58 to 99 is fine in a truck.

    Probably 4.5 to 5.5 hours no matter how you slice it.

    Going from Tehachapi to Bakersfield shouldn't be an issue.

    I'm guessing you are going to Lowe's in Fresno.

    Going to Fresno to picked up the trailer, a buddies rig broke down so I’m doing him a favor by delivering it to Vegas.

    All is good now as I have picked the trailer up and on my way.
