Roadtrip down California's iconic Pacific Coast Highway

Cars
Speaker 1: Okay, you guys, I don't know about you, but like I am dying for a road trip. I'm over San Francisco. And, uh, look what I got. AHS Lexus IAS, 500 sport. And you know what? Like I've got some time and the long beach Grandee is coming up. So I think I'm just gonna truck on down PCH and visit some of Myun suit. What kind of trouble I can get into you? Speaker 1: The 2022 Lexus 500 F sport is a [00:00:30] gorgeous sedan with a drumming five liter V8 that puts out 472 horsepower and 395 pound feet of torque should be plenty of fun on the winding tarmac of the Pacific coast highway. So I know you might be asking, like, why would you wanna go on a road trip all by yourself? That's so boring. Okay. I am so fish and this way I'm not on anyone else's timetable. Like I can do exactly what I wanna do when I wanna do it. I can go where I want to go. I can stop for a diet Dr. Pepper, whenever I wanna stop for a diet Dr. Pepper. Like it's the ultimate freedom [00:01:00] being on a road trip by yourself. Now having said that, like sometimes do I get a little lonely? I mean, yeah, like you see something and there's no one there to be like, oh, how cool is that? Speaker 1: Or look at that cool car. Look at that great sunset. So maybe that's kind of why I decided to bring you guys along. Right? Like I have all my friends out there through the camera and I can show you guys the stuff that I see, but I don't have to deal with in your crap. And think I finally figured this out. There are so many cool places to visit on highway one, but I know exactly where [00:01:30] I wanna stop. First. See back before road show, I used to work every summer at the Shakespeare festival in Santa Cruz. Yep. Days spent with the bar at night, spent on the boardwalk. It's only a few hours to surf city on highway one. So I'm stoked. Take a ride on the giant tipper roller coaster and grab me some funnel cake. Well, I finally ran into the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk, and um, you guys it's closed. Speaker 1: Look, there's a fence and it's closed. So I guess I'll just like walk around, see what I can find. So sad. [00:02:00] It's my favorite place. Right? So a lot of people don't know this, but Santa Cruz is actually the real surf city. Those Huntington beach people can suck it because it is Santa Cruz, that surf city, here we come, like the beach boy sang about it. So of course, if you wanna be a cool Santa Cruz person, you gotta beach volleyball. And of course I'm by myself. I don't know. So let's see what happens. Yeah, here we go. Walk. I did it. I didn't think that would happen. There [00:02:30] is only one thing that can cure my clothes, boardwalk blues. And that's the raw power of this is 500. Speaker 1: Oh man. A five liter V8 is amazing. So much fun. Is this super fun? Yes. This was super fun. Super fun, indeed. And perhaps one of the last generations of VHS you're gonna be able to get. [00:03:00] So I guess the moral of the story is downshift and throttle on while you can't maybe cuz it's not gonna be here for long. All right. It's time to slow my role and take in the sight. This is a road that I really wanna take my time on drink in the beauty and check out the locals. Wasn't there some commercial about cows, like having it really good in California. I mean, look at those cows. There they are. Those cows are, have like a million dollar [00:03:30] view. It's crazy. Look at how praise is and just how long does it take to drive PCH? Well, Google map says that I should make it down to SoCal after about 480 miles and nine and a half hours. Speaker 1: Now, if you're in a hurry, you could take the five and do the drive in 400 or so miles in a little over six hours. Of course. I mean I could fly, but I am so glad I'm driving because have you ever actually flown from San Francisco to Los Angeles? I mean, by the time you get these [00:04:00] and all that stuff, you might as well have just driven and plus now you gotta wear a mask and like everyone's all crowded and worried about the coronavirus in this way. I don't have to worry about that cuz I'm all by myself. I don't have to mask up so perfect. After a few hours in the car, it's time to stretch my legs. There are all kinds of day hikes along PCH, but I've never been to MC wave falls and seen that waterfall on the beach. The place is crowded with folks just like me out, enjoying the beautiful California lifestyle and hoping to get just a tad closer to nature. Okay, I get it. Now. [00:04:30] There it is. There it is. So this water's coming down in here into the ocean, so we got fresh water going into salt water, which is pretty cool and a very, very unspoiled beach. Speaker 1: Why is everything close for me today? First? I couldn't get on the roller coaster now. I can't like go that way where it looks like it's really fun. I mean, it's pretty pretty though. Right? It's beautiful. Nature's awesome. All right, moving on. Oh my God. [00:05:00] This water's gonna be so cold. So it's so cold. So cold. So cold. So cold. Oh crap. Oh crap. Oh crap. Oh my God. It's so cold. Uh, here's a funny thing. Um, the ocean in Northern California, it's a really, really, really, so surfers wear wetsuits the entire year round. And even in the summer, they're wearing a full wetsuit because the water is freezing. Like I only got my [00:05:30] feet wet just that little bit and I can't really feel him beautiful. Right? Amazing. I'm like, this is all up and down the coastline you guys, this is like, this is California. It goes from all the way up there to all the way down there. And it looks like this. You I've spent so much time messing about I've lost my daylight. It looks like these last few hours are gonna be in the dark until I hit long beach, quick snooze. [00:06:00] And then it is race day, baby.
