Its a long pull though S OR. and then through N. CA., Siskyu's and Shasta...Hit Redding and you got it made going south, and well it is a long trip back while towing...Watch that temp gauge like a hawk and bring at least 2 radiators worth of anti freeze and water...
I ran truck up and down the I-5 from Seattle to LA for years...You may also do a brake job before ya go...You will need brakes on the downhill portions when that load want to push you...
Also CA. is very touchy about towing, make sure you have all the safty gear, lights working, and all equipment CA. approved...The northern half of CA. lives off of traffic tickets, and if you contest you have to go back to argue your case...I used to call it Indian country.
