Just follow your flight plan unless ATC tells you to do otherwise.

Do you have the option to request flight following to (your destination airport: KBOI)?


Checking in means you are intending to follow your flight plan.

So if you request flight following, you’re basically sending the same message.

Now the Center ATC is closed but thanks for replying

Once you check in, all you need to do is follow your flight plan. Do not check in and request flight following. The only times you really need to make a request after checking in and reaching your initial cruising altitude are for altitude changes, e.g. step climbs and TOD.


Thanks Tim. I use this option mostly for the departure frequency.
