Another option is cutting over the Tehachapi via the 58 and then shooting down the 14 to get to the LA area.
I choose this all the time, truck-friendly as well.

If there was a commitment to get somewhere between SF and LA. of course I-5 would be the obvious choice. Enjoyed going the scenic route while sightseeing on vacation, there was no need to be there 2 hours before anyone else! hehehehehehehe

Just an observation ...

We used to drive I-5 very often when we lived in the LA area.
Went almost every other week to Scarymento.

On the way back to the LA area, do some of you have the same crazy notion, that when you go up the *grape vine*, you think you should be 5 minutes from the San Fernando Valley ??
In reality it is still about an hour away ...
