California's Pacific Coast Highway 1...

 My family drove the PCH in our camper when we were kids.  We drove from Arizona so it made for a really long drive for all 7 of us.  When we weren't all fighting 😊 I remember my sisters and I checking out all the surfer boys from our cool ride.  Another memory was driving down Lombard Street in our camper... We were so cool!
