    This one’s a little off the beaten path for me so I’m reaching out for suggestions if anyone is familiar with the area.

    Destination is Brewster, WA.
    I’m currently in Missoula, MT.

    Not keen on following gps directions..I’m heavy too.

    I took 2 over to Spokane a couple weeks ago. Beautiful drive, then 90.

    Pretty sure this was my route. Screenshot_20220515-084543_Maps.jpg

    I-90 to Spokane. #2 west to Wilbur. Follow 21 to 174 and 17. you go by Grand Coulee and Joseph dams and come out at Hwy 97 a few miles north of Brewster. I ran a good part of that route running Kelowna, BC to Spokane. I went east on 155 from Omak to Grand Coulee, you would continue on 174 from Grand Coulee to Hwy 97. It’s a lot of 2lane but good running.

    Hwy 2 west out of Spokane to Coulee City then 17 up thru Bridgeport to Brewster will probably be the easiest if you’re heavy.

    If you go thru Grand Coulee you’ll drop down to and come up away from the river faster (steeper). Going thru Coulee City is more gradual running.

    I probably should have said through Coulee City on 174 rather than mention the dam. If he passed the dam I got him lost and onto 155 on his way to Omak instead of on 174 to where he wants to go.
     
    Concorde Thanks this.

    Thanks everyone.

    Was a sketchy trip up there this morning in crazy dense fog but I made it. Delivered to an apple farm and went empty back down to Spokane.
    That Grand Coulee dam is something to see. Supposedly one of the largest concrete structures in the world.

    Once the fog burned off I hope you got to enjoy your ride through the Washington countryside a bit.
