Highway 101 is without a doubt a great place to enjoy your "R". I drove to Santa Barbra from West Los Angeles via hwy 101, even in traffic the "R" is great i've never owned a Benz or Bmw but I can't imagine that those cars are anymore comfortable to drive. It's the only car that i've driven that no matter what happens with the traffic i'm feel as fresh getting out as I did when I got into my "R". The funny thing is I can put my foot in it and it's no joke when it comes to moving down the hwy. Sorry no negativity here. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>dam I forgot my camera next time. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

There is a Mulholland that goes from the Hollywood fwy to the 405 and another one on the other side of the mountain that runs North and south and the goes east to west in the Woodland hills / Calabasas area. Mullhollad is like Supulvada where there are a numerous amount of streets with the same name.<p>I think I remember a post in the past where you lived out here years ago... which is why I think you might have the streets a little mixed up.<p>The Mulland drive that Steve is referring to is a beautiful drive off the 101 that heads in a south direction then a little jog to the west. It dumps you onto PCH in Malibu if I'm not mistaken. The 101 makes a slight jog to the northwest towards Woodland hills and on to Oxnard/Ventura. The 5 is about 16-20 miles to the east from this junction off the 101

Re: Highway 101 (cloaked)

Hey Marc, <p>I have to agree. I take that road quite often... in fact I have to do the 101 from Los Angeles to Pismo on Wednesday. It's an awesome route.. especially when you get close to Santa Barbra and the road looks like it's clinging next to the Ocean. <p>Around my neighborhood, I enjoy this route that goes from the back side of Rancho Santa Margarita thru O'Neil Region Park and Cleveland Nation Forest. It eventually turns into Katella in Orange Hills, but the first part of the trek has areas that are covered in oak trees and the daylight never makes it to the ground. Very twisty. An easy get away for min in about 2 minutes. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Too many cold winters there gave you a brain-freeze, and besides, things have changed a lotta since Vietnam war.

Re: Highway 101 (cloaked)

I used to take the LA to Santa Barbara 101 and PCH routes frequently when my girl friend went to school there. The R is a blast to drive on 101 but more so on PCH. I will be taking a weekend trip to Yosemite this coming Friday...should be a great drive.
