They typically don't, my dad has connections there
Aha! I know my nephew has gone that route several times but he always had to take the train past Pendleton.
Having driven this road....it must be incredibly frustrating for locals, stuck behind enraptured tourists, on an ever-winding highway......
My first thought was.....Space Lasers!
We were camping at Big Sur shortly after the last time it happened. It cut us off from any quick road trips for supplies, etc. We had to hike winding trails for about six miles into the next little “town”, but it was a fun diversion and we all enjoyed an ice cream before heading back on the trail.
I heard someone say the other day, “two things you can count on in California: the swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano and Hwy One washing out into the Pacific.”
I read L. Ferlinghetti, H. Miller, J. Kerouac, and R. Brautigan when I was young and didn’t know any better. I imagined what Big Sur was like but never got to see it.
I did drive the PCH through Santa Barbara when I visited L.A. in my 20’s and enjoyed the ride.
Also got pulled for speeding on the 405 by one of those CHIPS cops. I’ve got a picture somewhere of me sitting on his motorcycle.
There's a reason that Hwy 1 between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay is nicknamed Devil's Slide.
People pedal on the 5 freeway south to circumvent Camp Pendleton, it's actually legal.
Crazy, but legal.
Devil's Slide doesn't have a road anymore, they put a pair of tunnels in because the Slide... slid, so much. They only bypass about 1 1/2 miles of the coastal bluffs.
Half Moon Bay's really far, the Devil's Slide tunnels are between Daly City and Pacifica, two towns which are right next to each other, just south of San Francisco.
Like "tap" and others I drove up and down that road with friends for years when I was young. My ?74 Ford Courier, my 1977 Honda 750SS, my 1980 Suzuki GS1100ES and my 1983 Suzuki 1100 GS EX. Many times we had to go it slow because of rock debris. One of the most beautiful places in the USA.
I know where it is. I lived on the Peninsula for many years before you were even born. I only used Half Moon Bay as a reference because I thought people that weren't Bay Area natives would have heard of it over the others.

every time I hear Big Sur, I think of lee Mellon out there somewhere, shouting "Campbells Soup!" at frogs or tying string onto them and tossing them down the canyon, to shut them up...
Heh. "OK boomer?"
Just part of the charm of SoCal. Lived in Ojai for a few years back in the 2000's, not all that far south and a little inland of Santa Barbara. Had the main access road to the whole town wash out about a week after heavy rains. Had been driving on it all week, road crews closed the outside lane but nearly the whole road surface fell. Took 'em a few months to repair it, added hours to the drive every morning trying to get to work. Fun.
Publisher’s Clearing House did that? Whoa!
You know what else? They still haven’t brought me my money yet, either.
