I’ll be going with two pilots to San Jose on Sunday. We hope to check out the Santa Cruz redwoods, Monterey Bay, Big Sur, and Hearst Castle along the way. It’s TFR season ;-), so we have to leave San Jose in time to avoid Obama’s visit there, avoid an air show around Salinas, and we may have some weather challenges to consider as well.
This is a good example of the things you have to consider on a long trip. You should be able to track us via our SPOT tracker. Our general planned route is shown below. You should be able to look at the route in RunwayFinder
