This December, we’re partnering with our friends at Pacific Overlander for a journey down Highway 1 through Big Sur. This isn’t just a drive down the coast, though - we’ll be venturing in roof-top-tented, 4WD-equipped, fully-kitted-out Toyota 4Runners and Jeep Wranglers. We’ll meet up Friday for breakfast in Fort Point, San Francisco before starting out south for a weekend of wonder and discovery. This’ll be a mix of individual vehicle travel and caravanning, stopping at your leisure for photography, hikes, oysters, brisk water dips and croissants from Big Sur Bakery. In true overlanding spirit, our itinerary is rough, but count on a sunset at Pfeiffer Beach (hopefully with a bit of sun peeking through the keyhole) and great campsites. Four wheel drive and high clearance give us access to often-overlooked parts of the coast.
By day, choose your own adventure - a relaxing beach vacation with book in hand, or tackle some of the great hikes across the parks. We’ll have a beach station set up with snacks, cold drinks, Spikeball, and more. On Saturday, we’ll have a full suite of wetsuits and surfboards if you’d like to paddle out - December is the Pacific Coast at it’s most pumping.
By night, we’ll meet up at campsites for delicious food, hot campfires, cold beers, and plenty of time for late-night hangs. Alongside the vehicles’ rooftop tents, we’ll have camping gear - just bring a sleeping bag. December in Northern California means shorter days and longer nights, so expect early wake-up calls to make the most of that precious sunlight.
