this is the automotive equivalent of being locked up in a maximum security prison and sharing a cell with jerry lewis. it is the worst. and many times, it's not an RV, but a Pontiac G6/Chevy Cobalt/Chrysler Sebring/"insert stereotypical rental car here" with a retired couple from North Daakotah who have no concept of yielding to traffic. and it's a two laned road with a solid no passing yellow.you may end up behind an RV going 25mph.
This is my expectation. The best drive I've ever done, in any car, was during the WCLM at Morro Bay a couple years back. Randy made us get out of bed at like 5:30a for the drive - and I hated him for it. Until we drove that is.I made the drive up PCH last fall. I spent the night in San Simeon and got up at sunrise to beat trafic and head north towards Big Sur. This is the best part of the drive, best twisty bits and breath taking views. [...] I'll never forget that drive as long as I live.
CJ, we'll be driving up Thursday afternoon and staying in SLO for the night. Seems like you copied us (read: copy-cat). We'll then make out way to Concorso Friday morning. But we won't have our 55 knot Elan, we'll be in Autobahn cruising BMW's!!!I'm planning on leaving now on Thursday evening, and staying somewhere around the SLO / Pismo / Lompoc area. I was hoping to camp on the beach - but there don't seem to be any available campgrounds. Then Friday morning cruising the coast, taking lots of pictures, and having lots of fun.
Actually, Patricko might cruise up with me on Thursday - but he has to carjack a Lotus first.
Agreed. It was a good time. I can sleep in any ol' time.CJ, the memory of the early morning Big Sur run was one of the best I have had. Glad we did it.
My plan right now is to return early Monday morning. If for any reason I do decide to leave Sunday afternoon, I'll definitely chase you back Randy. Have you plotted a route for return yet? What car are you driving up?Do to my commitment to Leno's Garage, I am heading up Wednesday instead, probably leaving Paramount area around 11:00am. Heading back down 1 on Sunday afternoon. I will leave early, as I want to be back in San Diego before midnight. I might leave around 2:00-2:30pm Sunday.
I love that Bimmer. I'm leaving mine at home and taking the British Rattle Trap. When are you guys leaving? Where are you staying? Let me know via PM, we should meet up somewhere. Are you taking the PCH or the 101 up to Monterey on Friday?CJ, we'll be driving up Thursday afternoon and staying in SLO for the night. Seems like you copied us (read: copy-cat).
