    Taking Hwy 101 north into San Luis Obispo, all the offramps come up very quickly. If you are looking for the turnoff for Hwy 1, the Big Sur Scenic highway, it comes up right in the middle of town. Look for the green and white road signs. It will say "Morro Bay Hearst Castle north 1" with an arrow.

    You will be making a sharp right turn off the freeway onto a residential street, Toro Street, before you again turn right onto Walnut Street. Look for the Green signs with writing in white. "1 Morro Bay Hearst Castle" and the arrow pointing the way.

    Also note the blue and white signs. One is for gasoline stations ahead on Santa Rosa Street. This can be a long drive to Big Sur with limited gasoline. Fill up before you leave San Luis Obispo. There are several gas stations to stop at before you leave town.

    Reading a map

    by Jerelis Written Apr 10, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, the catchy title of the 1992 bestseller by John Gray, succinctly expresses an ancient dilemma. What--if anything--do men's and women's brains do differently?

    The general statement that men and women respond and behave differently under the same circumstances is true; For example, from the crib, male babies tend to be more aggressive and females more passive. As adults, in spatial operations, men have the edge in such skills as negotiating a maze, reading a map, and quickly discriminating between right and left. Men also perform better than women when asked to visualize an object and imagine rotating it. On the other hand, women tend to perform better than men when asked to look at objects of different shapes, sizes, and colors, and then to group them in some order.

    This still doesn't explian why Relinde turns the map all around when I'm asking for the road to travel, while I like the map at one point so I can better visualize our position. Help!
