So you're thinking of this route?--
I-5 to Grant's Pass
US-199 to Crescent City
US-101 to Leggett
CA-1 south to maybe CA-128 below Albion back to 101 at Cloverdale
US-101 through S.F.
I-280 south to San Jose
Back to US-101 to Prunedale
CA-156 to CA-1 at Castroville
CA-1 south to SLO
If time gets short, there are several ways to get back to 101 or I-5 in a reasonable time, and some ways that are wonderful, winding, slow country roads you don't want if you're late. For a faster ride home, you can take 101 to San Jose, I-680 to I-80 around the East Bay, I-80 to Vacaville, I-505 to Dunnigan, and I-5 home. (and maybe there's a better way from SLO to I-5 northbound).
Enjoy the good parts of the ride and be very, very careful and watchful through the cities and on the superslab.
