Toll Road vs. Free Road
« on: November 15, 2017, 08:08:18 PM »
At the risk of boring you, I thought I'd share this video.

No soundtrack.  Feel free to skip around.

I took the Toll Road from our home in San Miguel, and rolled up to Alisitos, then took the free road home. 

The toll road is the scenic views of the Pacific.  The free road is the more fun road.  Each is impeded with traffic at some point, but it's not bad.

The transition from toll to free is around 19:30.  The free road starts at Alisitos, transitions through La Mision, then climbs a small mountain and opens up for some nice sweeping fun times.

Here's the link for your perusal:

The free road is definitely the funner of the two.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Agreed.

It wasn't so fun in 2014.

During the week of Xmas 2013, the Toll Road suffered a collapse.  A section of both lanes literally slid down the hill towards the ocean below.  It happened at o-dark-hundred in the morning, and trapped a semi-truck.

Due to this, the free road had to pick up the slack, and did so for about a year. 

Here's a pic from that event.

Nobody died?  THAT's a miracle.
