It really wasn't the fact that I couldn't do it. It was just one turn after another and I was unable to enjoy the scenery.
It is a beautiful drive in your toad.
I heartily agree! Highway 1 along the Big Sur coast is awesome, but it is a twisty, turvey road and isn't the place for an RV. The real key to the drive is being able to pull off and park at a moments notice to get out and really enjoy the view, but it's a lot easy to take advantage of the small spots in a small car. I got some absolutely incredible landscape photos (that I ended up using for work), but I was only able to do that because I could pull off the road.
Do try to do the Big Sur coast drive someday though, as it is amazing!
