Dear Jim Morrison:

How am I supposed to "ride the King's Highway west" when El Camino Real runs north to south?

poetic license

if you need driving directions, check your GPS or stop your car and ask a local for directions.

I want a GPS with Jim Morrison's voice. "Ride the highway west, baby."

Maybe when I reached my destination, I could hear "This is the end, beautiful friend."

You're combining two different lines, "Ride the King's highway" and "Ride the highway west," so it could be argued that it's two separate ideas. (But, eh... not really.) And, if you want to get persnickety about it, one does travel west going north on the highway. But he's really just saying come west, experience the West. The West is the best. And it is. ;)

There's more than one King's Highway. There's one in N.J. but I'm not sure which direction it runs...

Then there's this:



But if you're looking for a Petty song about the journey west, this is a much better one:

Dear Jim Morrison: I tried it and you were right. Probably should have turned left.

When riding the King's Highway, be sure to keep your eyes on the road and your hands upon the wheel.

You don't want to get distracted and break on through to the other side.

the king's highway is a general term given to roadways that were made to give passage to the tax collectors, back when settlements were little more than unincorporated groups of houses and farms.

I recently found out about one not far from my house that I wish to go check out someday. It is fallen into disuse, but I believe some of it is accessible to the public; technically all of it should be but development in the last 200 years hasn't always taken historical trails in the muck and mire to be relevant enough to preserve. Particularly when it was a reminder of imperial colonialism which was rejected in some donnybrook called the Revolutionary War.

It incidentally does go east to west, so I'll be trying to listen for Mr Morrison's incantation when I do go exploring it.

Especially if you're going to meet an L.A. Woman and she tells you to Touch Me and Love Me Two Times. You better Light that girl's Fire if that's the case, you better Love Her Madly.

People Are Strange, aren't they?

Okay haha I'm done. The End.
