"Many thanks for the responses.  It looked okay to me, but it's good to know that from folks who've used that route more.  The Cicero jog is the main obstacle going west, but if I'm doing it every day, I may just figure out…"

Anyone familiar with Wrightwood going east from Narragansett to California?
