Next Tuesday (the 22nd) I am driving from north Oakland to Santa Barbara, mainly down the 101.
The last couple of times I've driven down there, I've hit pretty bad traffic around San Jose, and later around San Luis Obispo, although that's not as bad as in the Bay Area.
What is the best time in the morning to leave in order to miss the worst of the traffic? Sadly I will be driving by myself, so I can't use the HOV lanes.
