Oyster ride

I am a jobbed bum so can not go on Friday (sorry QWIK).

We should declare one Friday National Oyster Holiday and then we can all go together!!

Go to your employer and tell them it's a religious holiday in Canada

SF - San Diego on Hwy 1

Fellow Bay Area ADV Riders,

On March 6 I will begin my first long distance ride from SF to San Diego on Hwy 1. I was wanting to know if my fellow riders out there knew of any great places to eat and photograph along the way.

Thanks for you suggestions,

Good luck. I think finding your own good places is gonna be part of the fun.

And thanks for not mentioning oysters.

A nice spot for lunch is in Lucia. There's a small hotel there-can't miss it as it's pretty much the only thing there. The food does not suck. The fish and chips are amazing. Burgers and sammiches are too.

Ragged Point, San Simeon Harbor, Hearst Castle and various pullouts for photography.

If you don't mind spending $20 for fish and chips...

Gas up in Carmel. The gas at Ripoff Point is highway robbery, as is the gas in Gorda. You can refuel in Cambria for reasonable prices.

A dinner sized portion plus beer. Seemed reasonable to me.

However, it is a ood place to stop for a soda & chips, and use their very nicely decorated restroom.

Are you planning to do any side trips? Naciamento-Fergusson Road to Fort Hunter Liggett and the Mission (San Miguel?) is a nice 2~3-hour detour -- and that's including time to stroll around the mission. You must take vehicle registration & insurance paperwork since you're entering onto a military base. Not that you shouldn't have it anyway.

I still haven't visited San Simeon, high on my list.

Dude, gas is cheaper in Death friggin Valley. No lie.

Hearst Castle in San Simeon is cool. The night tour is pretty cool. They have actors in period costumes in some of the rooms. You aren't supposed to use a flash, so pics of the night tour are difficult. The day tour is nice, too. Better pictures, but no cool period actors.

The gas prices in Gorda are the highest in the continental US.

Looks like that's a story from 2008; may still be true, ¿Quién sabe? According to whoever wrote the wikipedia article, part of the cost goes to subsidize the town's diesel generator that provides power for the residents. Seems fair to me.

All I know is that if I'm about to run out of gas on that stretch of Highway 1, I'm not gonna squawk about it; just pay the piper and be happy I can keep truckin'.

How's that for a bunch of mixed metaphors?

I filled up in Gorda a couple of times last year. Not only is it expensive (my bike needs premium) but my bike ran like crap
after putting a couple of gallons in the tank. I'm betting that at that price the premium has been gathering cobwebs
underground for many, many years.

Regarding generators, that whole stretch of coast down there including Lucia and Limekiln Creek is still off the grid
even in this day and age. There is a phone line but no power lines.
