So I am relocating from San Diego to San Francisco, and will be taking a week to make the drive, and plan on taking the scenic 101. My 2012 OB will be packed with all of my belongings (I am working as a traveling nurse in SF, so my housing, furniture, etc. is already taken care of my the company so all i need to are personal belongings) and will have a Thule box on the roof for all the camping gear and things I need to get at easily. I'd like to hit wilderness areas, day hikes, and car camping over staying at a hotel. (I used to work for the North Face and have a ton of really nice gear that unfortunately has not been used since moving to SD, and the whole point of relocating to the bay area is to live near a city that has culture AND awesome outdoor activities surrounding it.)

So far I am planning on hitting up Big Sur, and may also take a quick day trip to Hearst Castle, but looking for wilderness areas and campsites to stay at along the way. Any suggestions are welcome!

If you haven't done it before , consider first heading east, up to Julian, and then north through the mountains up to at least LA, and then over to the coast. HPH
been out that way a bunch, especially Julian on my motorcycle. It's cool, but nothing like riding through the twisties in Colorado.

Make sure you drive your new OB on the dunes at Pismo Beach, only legal place I know of where you can drive in the sand and enjoy camping next to the the ocean.
Website says this area is now called Oceano.

thanks, but I do not think I am going to be too stoked on taking a fully loaded down OB with a loaded cargo box on the roof into soft sand!
