    CA: going to cali...suggestions for fun roads?

    hi all... im taking a road trip from davenport ia to cali in a few weeks... we will be heading to yosemite first, then san fran, wine country and up the coast (rt 1???) to redwood nat'l forrest... should be fun... are there any roads out there that i cant miss???

    youll be fine. i had a catless turbo protege here for 6 months and i live here. only 91 octane here.

    youll want to check out hwy 1 all the way up the coast...once you get to big sur area fun driving if you dont get stuck behind some slow poke. pretty scenary.

    i wouldnt mind seeing your car and riding in it if you come up hwy 1 past monterey.

    !!!!!!!!!!!HOW CAN YOU EVEN CONSIDER NOT DRIVING YOUR BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Im going memorial day weekend, I will take I-5(very borning) down because we are on a time constraint and 101 up crossing over this great highway i found last time i went but i forget the number.. i will consult my map and get back to you later.

    Dont forget to visit sausalito when you visit san fran.. going north on 101 town right after golden gate bridge.

    I am taking my car it only has 1 cat(the other ones were clogged so i had to replace them ). I dont give a crap about CARB regulations my car is registered in oregon.

    EDIT:Reflash to 91 octane stage 2 as your base and download the stage 2 cali map just in case you have pinging issues. I am bringing a few gallons of toulene with me to keep octane levels up high. Have fun!

    yeah... i guess you're right... my only concern was the fact that there are three (poss 4) going and we'll basically be living out of the car... this will be an 18 day trip and i dont want it to get trashed... its also tough knowing ill be putting 5-7K miles on it... thats why i bought a suby though....

    anyway.. whats in sausalito??? always willing to out of the way for a fun road and a view!!!

    Have a great road trip! Sounds like a great one. I did Cleveland to Seattle several years back living out of the back of a Ranger. Great memories.
