One advantage of 99 is more opportunities for gas, food, etc.

Oh, and don't call San Francisco "Frisco", it's "San Francisco" or, if you really want talk like a Bay Area local, "The City". Ironically, given that the Spanish language is so prevalent around here, Nevada is pronounced Ne-vaa-da (as in vat), not Ne-vah-dah both in CA and NV. And San, as in San Jose and San Diego is "Saan" as in sand, not "Sawn", which would be more correct.

I do apologize, but many areas of the country have their own peculiarities and I like to pronounce things like the locals do. Peabody, MA anyone?
And for God’s sake, don’t call the state “Cali” Sheesh!

Maybe so, but “The Five” (ack!) is my new route of choice. Some potholly areas, but for the most part just fine, far less construction (almost none), and far fewer towns/cities feeding traffic in and out. I am a long time 99er but this trip on 5 was enough to change my mind.

I'm old enough to remember when I-5 was an incredibly long stretch of perfectly smooth concrete, not asphalt. In a car you had to constantly watch your speedometer to avoid a ticket. It was perfect! But I never thought Andersen's Pea Soup in Santa Nella was all that great.

We tend to alternate between the two but it's been awhile since we've headed south. I-5 north into WA is in pretty good shape.
