Maybe this is not such big news to you if you live far from the West Coast, but being in Los Angeles with a Miata, this is like a dream come true! Part of the PCH (arguably the most scenic within a day’s drive of home) has been closed since May 2017. Considering I just moved here in November of 2017, I have been impatiently awaiting the road to reopen. To my surprise, the road has opened 2 whole months ahead of schedule! So a trip ASAP is in order.
I have driven this section of road twice now. First time was in a rental Ford Fiesta. I was a lurker on Oppo in 2014 though so I didnt make a post.
Second time was in a Turo rental of a Mini Cooper S. A much better trip considering how fun of a car that was. Especially having a Manual made that even more special. But it still wasn’t my car. Although, it did remind me of home considering how much oil it leaked...
This time though, I am bringing my Miata! And anyone from the Oppoverse is welcome to join. We have an email chain going with the local Oppo community and I am sure driving the PCH is on others’ bucket lists as well. Shooting for a Saturday in August/September this year for an epic drive through one of my favorite places on the planet.
