We've both been working extremely hard.
00:09
I was really excited to set up this getaway
00:12
with Kate and I together for three days
00:14
and just go out and experience this road trip.
00:21
[Kate] Jessun and I always have a good balance
00:22
for our busy schedules.
00:29
[Jessun] The M760 was awesome for this trip
00:31
it was the perfect combination of speed and elegance.
00:35
(engine revving)
00:38
(calming instrumental music)
01:02
Looking past the rubbles in the BMW
01:05
was an experience.
01:07
Ocean on the left,
01:08
canyons straight above us,
01:09
I'm like this is a car guy's dream.
01:13
Everything that you would want
01:15
and need out of a sports car
01:17
but yet all of a sudden you realize
01:18
that you're in a seven series sedan.
01:21
(calming instrumental music)
01:39
I've heard a lot of people talk about
01:40
the drive through Big Sur
01:41
and this is our first time doing it.
01:44
It was better than anybody's ever explained.
01:46
Everything you would want
01:47
and just going out and enjoying driving a car.
01:51
It gets no better than this.
01:53
(calming instrumental music)
02:19
So we get to Poppy Hills
02:20
which is this amazing golf course.
02:21
Typically we don't get to golf together
02:23
but I'd set up the golf court experience.
02:25
Obviously you know, I'm an avid golfer
02:28
and really so experienced both together for the first time,
02:30
I had never played it.
02:47
I was probably for the whole trip
02:49
most excited about Mavericks.
02:52
I had a excursion planned to go out
02:54
and watch some of these guys ride these huge waves.
02:58
[Kate] It was very unfortunate but one thing
03:00
we can't control is weather.
03:01
Luckily Jeff was suck a great guy
03:03
and sat down with us at the hotel
03:05
and explained what we were missing.
03:08
[Jessun] The passion that goes into anything,
03:10
his passion that goes into surfing,
03:12
my passion at baseball,
03:13
your passion at acting.
03:17
Nobody's great at whatever they do without that passion.
