What's it called? Seventeen mile drive? Twenty Seven mile drive? I dunno,
anyway, that's your first stop. Then if you want something a bit different I
suggest heading down the coast to Big Sur but turning left over the ridge
and down into the Salinas valley. If you make it as far as Bakersfield go
and see Buck Owen at the Crystal Palace. DON'T go to a bar called Trout's if
you are of a nervous disposition.
