    Choosing to take CA58 instead of the recommended CA46 from I5 to CA99 will take you through a very congested shopping area in Bakersfield, likely meaning some delays.

    Choosing to take CA58 all the way to I40 and then US95 instead of cutting down US395/I15 to I10 as previously recommended ads nearly 50 miles to the trip.

    So as GLC noted, if you don't mind adding more than an hour to your drive, there is nothing wrong with taking your proposed route over the one that was suggested here.

    Now - if you make this drive in off days/hours, you may be able to get away with taking I-5 all the way to I-210/CA-210 to I-10. With no significant traffic, this would save you at least half an hour because it's shorter. Most mapping programs will send you that way, but they don't take traffic into consideration.

    Even though longer, I would most likely take CA-46/CA-99/CA-58/US-395/I-15/I-215/CA-210 to I-10 just to stay off the LA freeway insanity if nothing else. The only possible bottleneck here is I-15 over Cajon Pass on a Sunday afternoon/evening, with everyone returning to LA from a weekend in Vegas.

    Taking AZ-85 to I-8 to avoid Phoenix would be a decent alternate, but it is longer.
