The coastal route was my original plan with a destination of Big Sur.
One can only wonder why...? The coastal route is at least interesting whereas I-5 is boring as hell, not to mention riding along with semi's blowing water all over you and your ride. I love this part of the country but no way would misery like that appeal to me. You must have friends there or maybe an old college squeeze? If not then take the coastal route, camp a little in your waterproof tent, and use the two-day Eugene stay for riding where there's at least a view.
