Can you give me a hint? Are you talking about the 395 from around Victorville up to Lake Tahoe and beyond (that route would have me go up to 8000+ feet)? If so, no I have not, and I like taking the coast trips as much as possible. I would usually take the 1 all the way up, but we have done that a few times in the past few years and are looking to get up north before getting on the 1 this year.
