Road is slated to open fully on July 20, although many trails remained closed.

The opening feels bittersweet. On one hand, local businesses need the money and people who live in Big Sur area especially need full access to their homes again. But it's been so nice to have an empty coastline. Some days have been so desolate you just hope someone comes along to talk with. shark I imagine it's going to be packed as hell for the rest of the summer.

I'm stoked. I like the drive on the way up north instead of hwy 101 and occasional day trip, and Leaveright will leave some thoughts and anecdotes at 9:30, 9:31, 9:33, 10:01, 10:23 and 10:47 tonight.

That has to be one of the most desirable pieces of property on the whole California coast.

He take care of the whole property or just manage the land resources? I don't even know who owns it these days. Would have to look up the APN.

He took care of the whole property. The Pauling family (Linus Pauling) still owns it. Linus passed, I believe his wife and kids are the primaries. DZ actually lived on the property before the slide. I think he's been living lately with his GF in PV. He drives the Pacific Valley school bus!!!

"Vitamin C's". Linus Pauling was the chemist who actually first processed, developed Vitamin C. wave2

The Pacific Valley school is such a trip. Something like 75 students from kindergarden through High School. DZ drives as far north as Big Sur Village and before the slide down to Ragged Point.

The school has its own cafeteria and organic garden. They actually just got internets with a donated sattelite dish about 2 years ago. If I was a kid, this is where I would like to go to school.

The Jade Fest coming up in October. Held on the school grounds. If you're in the area, a good time to stop and check it out. So many characters, good food and music. We saw Carlos Santana walking around two years ago at the last one before the roads closed down.

Cool man. I will check it out if I can. A local guy from Cambria runs it I think? PV such a trippy history. It's an interesting place to grow up for sure.

We will be down that week. Seven days at Kirk Creek. Willow every day. Willow is the hub. All of the old rock hounds will crawl out of the bushes. It just makes it more interesting. Good food at the fest though, for us campers. The indian booth. Chicken Tika Masala.
