If u go south on 99, below Bakersfield, is a town called Weed Patch. It was an original "Okie" camp, and as such was where many of the scenes from The Grapes of Wrath were filmed. PBS recently did a special on it. The locals are trying to get it on the national Register.
Next time u run down the coast continue on to Cayacos, a one block town. On the north side of Main St. is a blue building that is a combination Deli & Restaurant. Both owners are from NYC. Lou, the voice-est one, as soon as he finds out you are from one of the 5 boroughs, will start yelling @ u, just to make u feel @ home. He will then explain to the Ca patrons that if u don't yell @ a New Yorker's they feel insulted!
