Back in 2000, Jenni and I decided to drive one of America's great roads, Highway 1 in California. We took about 7 days to drive from San Diego to San Francisco. The road winds through so many cool places, it's hard to name them all. We hung out on the beach in Malibu, visited the Mission in Santa Barbara, saw Henry Miller's home in Big Sur, walked through Cannery Row in Monterrey, toured the Hearst Castle at San Simeon, and picked up numerous bottles of wine and speeding tickets along the way. If you're thinking of doing a road trip close to home, get your motor running and head out on the highway. But try to keep your eyes on the road, it's a long way down.
