I'm hauling a 26' rental truck w/car carrier in tow to Stockton to Victorville in late June. It's hot, I'm going solo. Should I stay safe and go out of my way via the I-5 & grapevine to the 14, or better to grab the 99 eventually to the 15S?
Do truckers prefer the 99? I'll probably tag along w/them a good part of the way. I'm concerned about the grapevine ups&downs with a heavy load + car carrier, but don't want to be in too remote stretches being by myself (in case of mechanical trouble, engine overheating, etc.)
