PACIFIC COAST HIGHWAY
A couple of years back I drove out to Cali on a road trip from here in central Ontario. 49 hours straight to Sanfran!

The PC highway from Sanfran to LA was the most beautiful stretch of highway I have ever seen. Also, crossing the desert at sunset flying down the open highway, foot to the floor was amazing. The Hoover dam & the Grand Canyon are way bigger than I ever imagined.

My point, my trip to Cali was memorable. thumbsup

Anyone have pics of the twisties on the PC highway?

My pics are pre-digital so they suck. But here are a few from my trip.

The pics are great, and thats one of my favorite sections of road too. Second only to some of the backroads in southern New Mexico.

In 2 weeks, I'm doing NYC to Yellowstone, Vancouver, LA, Vegas, and back to New York.

Last summer I did NYC to New Orleans, Vegas, SanFran, Denver and back.

I didn't take a lot of pictures last trip. This time to make up for it, I've been working on stop motion video. I have a wide angle camera hooked up to a small PC, snapping a pic every few seconds. 100 miles get condenses down to about a minute played back at 30fps. The highlites of the trip should fit on a dvd.

Last summer was in my old 88 firebird, falling apart around me. I'm eager to finally go on a road trip in my Celica.

Not entirely sure, on the PCH somewhere.

Two summers before that I flew out to Calgary, rented a car and drove through the mountains to Vancouver & back. The summer just before I flew to Florida, rented a car & toured the entire state top to bottom. The newyears millenium I drove to NYC. In the fall I drove out to Halifax through Montreal & Quebec City. The summer after the trip above I did NewOrleans & up the east coast. Last summer was Pensilvannia; I went cave touring.

Naw, I'm an amateur. Those pics are from my old 35mm camera. My new digital is way better.

Thanks, the only problem you might have is getting quality. It sure would be cool though to have about a 30 minute highspeed trip. thumbsup

Like that dude in NYC who has a webcam in his taxi, that's an awesome idea!

how long did your road trip take? how do you pay your bills with the amount of time you're taking off from work.

California trip was about 10 days & I think I brought about $1000 USD. No problem, I get three weeks paid vacation a year.

so with $1000 you were able to go across the country and back? Did that include fuel, food, supplies, etc?

Yep all inclusive with hotels, KOA's, gas & food for two people. grin

Road trips are the cheapest vacation short of staying home.
