    Historically, the best supported and most successful London team.

    However, Chelsea have had more success in the last 15 years and Tottenham are currently doing much better than them also.

    Head north of San Francisco and try the chunk that runs from Jenner up into Mendocino County.
    Or the section that runs from Lucia (about 20 miles south of Big Sur) south to the San Luis Obispo County border.

    Both directions have their pluses and minuses. One plus heading north is that you are never looking into the sun.

    As we were trying to navigate the boulders (not rocks!) of the narrow twisty Alpine Loop 'road', my wife remarked upon the tiny trees off to our right on a hairpin curve, only to realize they were just the tippy-tops of 50' trees rising up from the ravine just off the 'road'.

    Your passenger might miss some of the scenery, but if you're driving South and trying to take in the great scenery on your right, you (and your passenger and your car) could end up at the wrong end of that drop-off looking up.

    then you miss 90% of the great scenery!
