Looks like a great road trip, and fantastic photos as always.
It's these threads that make me want to move to California, cost of living be damned, so I can make road trips like this.
2019 Audi A5 - back to the brand after 28 years
2017 Golf Alltrack SEL+Tech - Son #1. In a galaxy far, far away
2014 Dodge Durango Limited AWD - Wife's
2004 Acura TSX - Son #2. The sax-mobile
1967 Chevrolet Corvette - I promise to get this car back on the road in 2018....
Thanks for sharing so many great pics.
I used to live in the Bay Area and cruised the Santa Cruz Mountains all the time - 84 from Redwood City to San Gregorio, Skyline Blvd past Neil Young's ranch, Hwy 9, etc. Such awesome scenery and fantastic driving roads - many areas with fast sweepers with good visibility ahead, making for safe yet enthusiastic driving.
Ojai trivia: my brother was pals with astronaut and 3rd man on the moon Pete Conrad. He had a Harley and hung with some Harley guys. In 1999, he went on a road trip from his home in SoCal to somewhere northward and took a spill in Ojai. He went with his group to the hospital as a precaution. Turns out he had massive internal bleeding. Doctors were unable to save him.
Here's the eerie part: the word "Ojai" is a native American word - its meaning? "Moon". So a guy who walked on the moon and survived the trip, winds up dying in a town named "Moon" decades later, after a seemingly minor motorcycle spill. Wild!
