Great RR! I am watching this very closely as I am doing the reverse of your trip in a little over a week.
Leaving from Vancouver (Canada) and going to SF. Have about 3-4 days to get down there and still trying to figure out my route. How has the fog been on the coast? What time does it seem to burn off in the day? I don't want to ride down the coast if I am socked in with fog.
Enjoy Victoria when you get there, I lived there for 8 years before moving to Vancouver.
If you are coming through Vancouver at all shoot me a PM. You are free to stay here if you want. (Secured underground parking).
