US 395 has an unlimited number of places to stop for rest. You can pay from $0 to $$$$...$0 means finding a place to pull over safely off the road.
I once pulled over on one of the side roads near Manzanar (about 250 miles from LA) at 2 AM and had a good night's rest, proceeded into Big Pine for breakfast and continued on.
Any of the small towns along the way are great...Big Pine, Lone Pine, Bishop, Mammoth Lakes (soak at Hot Creek just East of 395, no camping), Lee Vining, Bridgeport...take yer pick!
Don't bore your friends with all your troubles. Tell your enemies instead, for they will delight in hearing about them.
