Flight from FL to NY

I was flying from F45 to KHWV. I did most of the trip at 11.5k ft VFR over the top.

The forecast was 1800 ft 6 mile visibility in Islip. It was 400 ft overcast and 1.5 mile visibility. I spent the night in Delaware.

I filed IFR for the Deleware to NY leg of the flight. As usual, I filed an overland route, was cleared for a twin engine over water route, got another change en-route, and then got continuous changes en-route. Why do flight planning & program it into the GPS?

Only time I got to fly what I filed was going into BWI on a severe clear day!

THAT'S SO COOL. You must have the best job in the world to do that.
