Given the excellent weather along the entire route, I took the shortest path feasible in the Extra, with fuel stops at Reno-Stead (4SD) and Bend, OR (KBDN). Total flying time was 5.0 hours at an average ground speed of about 170 knots (196 mph). The Google Earth (kmz) file of the flight track is here.
Leg 1: KBVU-CRESO-CHICS-BTY-OAL-YERIN-FMG-4SD–348.6 nm in 2.1 hours; avg. ground speed 166 knots
Leg 2: 4SD-FITUN-SEDTO-LKV-URBIA-KBDN–277.7 nm in 1.6 hours; avg. ground speed 173 knots
