How long is the stretch of 89?
What would you peg the drive time at?
I take lakeville instead of 101/37 and get back on 37 out of Santa Rosa. After you get to the 50 summit, right at the bottom of the hill, 89 is to your right, clearly marked. Stay on 89 all the way past Heenan Lk and over Monitor pass. 89 entagles with 88 for a bit near Markleeville, but it's not hard to follow. It runs right into 395. 89 is actually a very nice road unless you get stuck behind those who cannot drive.
I'd guess 6.5 hrs from petaluma to Bishop, depending on traffic, stops, deer, etc.
