12V front to back - route?

Have any of you run a 12V wire from the battery to the back of the car (hatchback)? If so, would you be able to explain how you routed the wire?

Thanks.

I did battery to engine side of firewall towards passenger side, poked a hole through large grommet (poke towards the circumference, not near the middle). Pulled wire down under glove box and ran along passenger side trim along bottom. Did not need to remove any trim to do this (other than the felt piece that easily unclips under the globebox), just gently pried with plastic tool and pushed wire through. Removed the plastic trays at the rear seat and your basically in the hatch at this point. This was a 4 gauge wire.
