    Just got back from our trip! It took us 8 days, 3,125 miles, 2 traffic stops (one fat ass ticket), and a shitload of gas and coffee.

    We didn't do the full trip we had originally planned... We were having fun on the coast so we took our sweet time driving the PCH and stopping in all the cool little coastal towns to see what's up there. Here was our route (sorta, I don't know why Google added a bunch of shit in there?):

    Thanks everyone, much appreciated!

    Rodrigo, I don't know how much the ticket is yet, I haven't gotten the paperwork in the mail yet and the ticket itself doesn't say. I was trying to keep it around 70-75 the whole time to avoid tickets but this cop was sitting at the bottom of a huge hill in the middle of a turn so I was clocked at 82 in a 65 :( the whole traffic stop was like 7 minutes long... quick and dirty.
