Many, many times. The coast route is beautiful but, as you say, there are
stretches where there is nowhere to put the airplane. My favorite route is
I-5 (V-23, really).

Just a pipe dream at this point, but has anyone out there flown from the
SF Bay Area to Seattle (as the PIC, I mean)? Since my dad lives up there,
I've thought it might be fun to do someday, but no matter how I look at
the sectionals for the route - some of it doesn't look very 'pretty':

Go up along the coast and you have some airports but they are mostly along
the coast and subject to coastal fog (makes problems for a needed fueling
stop). Go up along I-5 and parts of the route get dark brown really fast.

Anyone do this? If so, what route did you take and why?

Thanks in advance!!!
