As a matter of fact, I spent the night in Monterey and got up early to take HWY 1 South. Apparently, there had been a fatal accident the night before and CHP had closed the Southbound traffic, just north of Big Sur, for the accident investigtion.
Being that it was 7AM mid-week, there were about 20 cars waiting for the CHP to open the HWY. I "bridged" the lanes of parked cars to the front
. The CHP said that I was about to have an epic ride down HWY 1 ! IT WAS!!! I blasted down with virtually NO traffic all the way to Cambria-Probably never have that opportunity again...
I'll be going South during Memorial Day weekend. It'll be crazy, but still an amazing ride. Thanks for the info.
