California Dreaming: exploring the West Coast

When my dad and I drove down the Pacific Coast highway back in 2005, we kept saying, 'We need to come back and explore that!' Our goal is to do just that- go back and explore the many towns and byways along the PCH at our leisure.

I love California, but to live there is prohibitively expensive. Plus, when you live somewhere, you take it for granted, get into a rut, and don't bother to explore the many things that might be nearby that people come from all over the world to see.

California is so big and wonderful that it would take quite a bit of time to thoroughly explore it- but I would like to hit the highlights- from the Humboldt Redwoods, Steinbeck Country and the Lost Coast to the high Sierra, San Francisco, Sacramento and LA. I want to roam around Muir Woods, ride the Sausalito ferry, tour Napa Valley and other wineries, see Hearst Castle and visit the Madonna Inn. I would like to ride the train along the coast and see Hollywood and San Diego and the desert. I'd like to catch a train going around the Tehachapi Loop, and drive along some of the original road across the Grapevine. I'd like to see the beaches that everyone talks about, and get stuck in traffic on the 405. I'd like to visit the Egyptian Museum in San Jose and ride the Big Dipper at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. And I'd like to see the sun come up over Santa Monica Boulevard.

California is an incredible place- very diverse and interesting. I'd like to have the time and means to go where my fancy takes me.

I spent the last six and a half years living in Cali. It is an amazingly beautiful place. And you do get stuck, very often, on the 405 highway in LA. Sounds like a great project.

I voted for you. Take a look at my idea and return the favor if you think it's worthy.
