I am currently planning a trip to LA and from there will be driving up the coast. Its a long weekend stay. I intended on leaving one day (Monday) to drive back straight through from Monterey to LA - based on google maps it seems doable, but after having spent an inordinate amount of time reading reviews and posts on here I am growing more and more concerned that it would be too long (anything more than 8 hours is what concerns me).
Googles estimation w/traffic is 6 hrs 40 mins
Does this sound accurate to anyone else?
