I will be flying from Northern California to Southern California this weekend for the first time in a C172SP (KPAO to KFUL). My planned altitude is 9500 feet. I had a talked with my former instructor about this flight. We had gone over the flight plan and he told me his tips on flying this route including using extreme caution when flying over the Tejon pass (by Gorman VOR) because of its strong turbulence.
Has any of you flown this path before can possibly give me some tips? Anything is appreciated especially tips about passing the Tejon pass.
