That trip sound great. I have taken most of the roads on the way up to Oregon, and they are great. Nice views, and plenty of twisties on Hwy 1. I was recently on a short trip on Hwy 1 and the weather was great, not to mention the clear views. Good luck. Ironically, today being the first day of fall, I should mention that the weather is starting to drop significantly in the evening in Northern California, just to give you a heads up.

Yeah, I plan to bring lots of layers as I can always take some of them off if I were to get too hot. It should be fun-I am getting pretty excited.

I will post some pictures when I return.
