My wife and I are flying west on Thursday. We'll be aboard Alaska 3 from Washington National bound for Seattle-Tacoma International, then a prop flight into Redmond, Ore.
The main leg heads northwest before flattening out along the Northern Plains.
Here are the points we'll pass along the way:
National Airport, Arlington, Va.
Seven Springs, Pa.
Middle Bass, Ohio
Coats Grove, Mich.
Grand Rapids, Mich.
Redwood Falls, Minn.
Miles City, Mont.
Mullan Pass, Idaho
Saint Andrews, Wash.
A * indicates that those places are not on the projected flight plan. Instead, the projected flight plan didn't include any waypoints in either of the Dakotas, so I made my best guess.
We'll actually be over water for a while. Middle Bass, Ohio is actually an island in Lake Erie, part of a three-island chain. We'll also traverse Lake Michigan before hitting Milwaukee.
So there you have it. The actual flight plan looks like this, courtesy of flightaware.com:

I know you were dying to know what the actual route was.
