    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    California is such a beautifull place !! Last time I did that drive was in 1984....I was an exchange student for a year..

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Sorry, I meant where is it in California?

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Paul: California Highway 1 South - from Half Moon Bay (San Francisco) to San Louis Obispo. Spectacular!

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Were are going to SF in 3 weeks so I'll take a look myself.

    Other destinations for our three week break in CA are Yosemite (Fish Camp), Monterey and Santa Barbara - Came to CA for first time last year - can't wait to come back.

    JAMS, thx for posting...great pics

    Having fled NYC a few yrs back, still marvel re: the spectacular roads/weather/scenery CA offers, often within 30mins of one's office in more congested Silicon Valley/Beverly Hills....IMO, a simply stunning quality of life for a (workaholic) car nut...

    For a 3 wk visit to CA, may want to investigate renting a 997S Cab in Beverly Hills (or even $0-down leasing a new 997S Cab for use during trip (clever NYC/London financial guys have played this game before ))....silly to drive great roads in a suboptimal car....

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    We did San Francisco, San Diego and LA last year - it was awesome and very memorable.

    Sadly a 911 is too small for the four of us - I'll probably rent an SUV or BMW - boring but good at mile munching.

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Check your PMs

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Wonderful pictures. Thank you very much for posting.

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Wonderful, indeed- thanks! One of my favorite places!

    Man, I need a new camera.

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Terrific pics... love #4 ... thanks for sharing.

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    my favorite stretch of california road. tight corners, beautiful scenery.

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Terrific photos Thanks so much for posting. I feel a trip to California coming in 2008!

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Thanks for sharing. I'm heading up to Oregon the end of the month for several days and plan to use Route 1 in both directions. I always prefer the section north of San Francisco for the better scenery. Will post as well upon our return.

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Dan, I would enjoy seeing your car on the way through.. sent you a PM with my cell number.

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    I did the trip between San Simeon and Monterey 2 weeks ago. I did the entire LA to SF trip on PCH last year. Thanks for bringing back such good memories.

    For those of you with too many passengers, I suggest you make them follow you in a rent-a-car. The trip is that good

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Pics of the car are great but we have done the Post ranch on a couple of occassions and there could equally be any number of great pics of the resort as well - did you enjoy Seirra Mar?

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    Like this?

    Sierra Mar restaurant at Post Ranch - Big Sur:



    Note: lo res image - will try to update it in a few days.

    Re: Weekend Drive - Big Sur

    The Sierra Mar has been closed for renovations; due to re-open at the end of July. The same great food, by Craig von Foerster, is available at the Rancho Sierra Mar building, located near the swimming pool. I believe It was the top rated hotel restaurant in the state of California in 2006. Menu: http://www.postranchinn.com/menu_highlights.shtml
