PSA -- Seriously, Don't Use Bear Camp Road
Should you ever find yourself in the region I grew up in and wanting to travel between the Southern Oregon coast and the I-5 corridor between October and April, don't try and take one of the crazy mountain roads over the Coastal Range. First, while beautiful, the roads are not for the faint of stomach. I've never crossed these roads without puking. Second, and more importantly, you might get stuck in the snow and no one will ever find you because they don't expect anyone to be dumb enough to travel these roads outside of summer. This family got stuck there for 2.5 weeks before someone found them. A few years ago, some guy got stuck up there and starved to death. In both cases people were looking for them and knew where they started from and where they were trying to go.
Well, another family failed to heed the warning, so let me reiterate -- don't take Bear Camp Road anytime when snow is even a remote possibility.
