I made the mistake of not bringing our first aid kit and so, of course, I had to accidentally smash my head on our car door for no apparent reason right when we were on the farthest back stretch of the road. By the time we got near a hospital (I probably should have had stitches) the wound had already started healing and it was too late for stitches.
If you have a fear of heights this is NOT the road for you. I white knuckled it through the whole way pleading with my husband to slow down. There aren't ANY guard rails and the road frequently turns on the edge of steep cliffs.
However, if you've ever had the privilege of driving Highway 1 through Big Sur and wanted to explore the interior cliffs and mountains then this is the road for you. The views and the drive are TOTALLY worth the trip.
