By the way, Coming from the bay area down I-5 does anyone have a secret place they like to cross over to 99 around Bakersfield? I always cut over through Arvin when I'm headed to Mojave but since I will be taking 178 out of Bakersfield I was wondering about how to avoid all of the stop lights in the Bakersfield suburbs. Is 58 a clear shot across from I-5?
I have yet to find a decent way.
How do you get by Los Banos? My SMB has a built in homing chip that always wants to turn east at Los Banos and head to Fresno. Last time I managed to jam the device and head on down I-5. I turned east on Hwy 46 at Lost Hills. Not too many lights but it was slow going behind farm trucks. 198 through Hanford is about the same.

Its a freeway East of 99 (Central Bakersfield) but a surface street as a connecter between I-5 and 99.
