Yes, but its nerve wracking in places because of turns and high cliffs. Plus...its slow. I've done parts of it with my old monaco pulling a trailer and all of it on motorcycles. Very picturesque.

Your exact question has been discussed previously in detail. Just use the search window at the top of each page to explore. Yes ...... if you are comfortable with curvy two lane roads, you will have a very scenic trip in a 38'.

Yes, I've done that route.

It will take a couple days longer as you hit lots of small towns but it's a nice trip and cool along the ocean.

1ciderdog has an excellent suggestion. 101 is also a very nice drive and merges with 1 at Legget and heads up the coast to OR.
