I drive that fairly regularly in a car. If it was me I'd take the 10 to the 210 to the 118 and then the 23 to the 101. The 118 from Moorpark to the 126 isn't too bad either but it's a 2 lane rd and has truck and agricultural traffic at times so it can be slow. The 101 from the 23 in T.O. to Camarillo and even into Ventura can be a bear also. Poor traffic flow and also the Conejo grade gets jammed up at the bottom.
Somebody mentioned the CHP on the 126. They have been patrolling pretty heavily and you really have to watch your speed through Fillmore. The 126 is a fairly scenic drive and the traffic flows smoothly.
As for time, we usually leave PS around 9:30 to 10:00 am and the traffic isn't too bad. It really gets jammed up at the 210 and 605 from the Irwindale area to the 134 with commuter traffic any earlier than that.
Hope this helps
