If you have a good 4WD and some time to kill take a ride up Los Burros rd to the top
and then take a right on Cape San Martin Lookout rd and go all the way out to the very
end.

You will be on a flat platform directly above the slide and can look straight down on HWY 1
about 600' below. Awesome view!!!

This^^^^

That area is even more un-stable than Salsipuedes



I got $1.00 that says the new road section stays in place over the winter. Any takers saying opposite?

Parts north and south of the new section, well, that is a different bet.


I'll take that bet.

They don't call the place "Mud Creek" for nothing...


Agreed, with same terms as agreed with Rice and Caelho.

Now to hope this coming El Nino is a mild one with regards to rainfall in Big Sur.

Had a great couple nights in Big Sur. Swell was funneling in pretty heavy in a few places. Monday was pretty full but Tues and Wednesday weren't too congested. The road is great.

You all hate me like an old raggdyass.

But maybe I have a few kernals of knowledge to pass along.

Extreme fire conditions down in Big Sur right now.

That means no campfires, anywhere. Propane stoves are only allowed in designated USFS campsites. That means you can't even brew up a cup of coffee legally alongside HW1.

$1000/person, $5000/group fine for camping alongside Nacamiento Road. The back country is essentially closed to camping with the Campground/propane stove deal.

Another gem is the 14 day rule. That is your window now if you post up. 14 in 365. Late...

Fvck ups up Plaskett Creek road. USFS comes through and makes Everybody leave.

If some of you want a little insight.

https://bigsurkate.blog/

Read it. Understand it.

A whole culture lives there. Outside of the boundries of the normal California/US standards.

A moment in time. Kindergarden through HS. for the kids. All taught under the same roof. 175 students.

Off The Grid. 2018 and still no power. Diesel generators, ice, still valuable commodities. Gorda.

yeah no way, with the amount of traffic going on now that the road is open it's nuts. There was a super car rally going on yesterday and today, they were doing donuts in the rock parking lot, porsches ferraris lambos, I probably saw 10 mil go by me on the way to big sur. And the last couple of days I've met people from england, rome, spain and asia.

All that going on and riding a bike through big sur, no fvcking way!
Stay safe iceman!

TRIP REPORT: This morning I finished up a long time goal of riding San Francisco - San Luis Obispo. A little over 300 Miles (with a few detours) of possibly the best coastal riding anywhere. Yesterday was the biggest leg stretching from Santa Cruz - Ragged Point 145 miles. Here is a mileage breakdown of the experience. . * 4:00 am wake up & ate soggy leftover sweet Potato fries from the night before w/ extra salt. Already sore from SF-SC 80 mile leg the day prior. * Mile 1-50 fog was so thick it drenched our clothes & felt like salty rain. Smell of eucalyptus filled our lungs as we passed Soquel & made our way through endless strawberry fields & empty roads * Mile 50-67 ate a donut, aa, matcha latte in Monterey & killed some time along 17 mile drive while the fog began to clear. Drinking as much water as possible * Waited in Carmel for a partner & ate a whole bag of salt & pepper chips & salad.. took shoes off fell asleep on a bench. * Woke up thirsty & drank a limonata & bought sour gummies at gas station before realized my back tire was going flat. While fixing I accidentally pulled out the valve stem, reinserted after asking people for tools - filled via C02 * Mike 67-80 rode to Big Sur river and climbed one of the biggest longest hills of my life. Legs were starting to feel it. Moving slow while some people yelled & honked at us while we moved along the gravelly dirt non-existent shoulder. Soaked body & mind in the river for 30 minutes & let the cold water do its thing to the muscles. Washed away the anxiety from the road. Sun was baking. Tourists were in full affect but luckily no cell service so most people focused on the road. . * Mile 100 I knew it was time to celebrate because a bumble bee flew in my mouth, luckily gag reflex kicked in & bee flew out. Ate pastries & rice Krispy treat & moved on. Someone yelled I follow you on instagram from their car.. made my day. * Mile 120 Less & less cars on the road & finally some downhill stretches. Clocked our fastest time at 42 mph. I could feel wind starting to pick me up. 🙁 climbed to Lucia for a final H20 stop, they had its-it ice cream sandwich which increased the stoke big time - REST IN COMMENTS
