The route continue north into Sonoma County with landings at Sonoma County (KSTS) and Cloverdale (O60), and then on to Mendocino County with landings at Lampson Field (1O2), Ukiah Municipal (KUKI), Ells-Willits Municipal (O28), then west over the mountains to the Pacific coast to Fort Bragg (82CL). 

The final leg follows California Highway 1 up the coast to the point where the road heads inland. Our route keeps following the coastline 20 miles to the final landing at Shelter Cove (0Q5).

Set the simulator at 2:40pm local.  We are targeting a golden hour (5:40pm) arrival at Shelter Cove.  Real weather.
