I have a question that came up as I’m working on The Sad Girl, and I bet one of my occasional readers can help me.
A couple of people are going to drive from San Diego to San Francisco. I know it’s an 8-10 hour drive one way, but they’ve only really got the weekend to get up there, meet someone, and get back. They’re thinking about heading out early on a Friday evening.
What makes more sense for them? I-5? 101?
What about LA traffic? What’s the best way around or through there?
Neither person is a California native, but they’ve both been there for a while. The driver has probably been in California for 10 years or so; the passenger for about 4, off and on.
Comments or suggestions? Where might they stop if they leave Friday night? Give me some local color!
