I'll start by saying I moved away from the Central Coast in '92 so things may have changed a lot since then. My experience with 126 (which I drove every couple of weeks in a former job) was that you had to be VERY careful. I saw numerous head-on collisions and narrowly missed a few myself. People drove too fast for the conditions (fog usually) and constantly crossed over the the line or passed others when they did not have a clear view. To drive it daily, well ... I wouldn't do it! Now if they have improved the road and widened it to 4 lanes (2 in each direction) that would be a different story.

As to the distance ... only can decide what your confortable with. I knew of people that lived in Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, etc, that drove into Glendale (by Dodger Stadium) every day. They would leave home at 5:30AM, to beat the traffic, and get to the office at 6:30. If they waited untill 6 to leave they wouldn't get in until 8. Distance in So Cal doesn't seem to mean much, but TIME in the car.

I can't answer the question on Oxnard as I know that market has changed considerably since I was there. You might consider Camarillo? Still relatively close to the beach weather but an easier drive for your wife and more options for you to drive to SC.

Good luck!
