Leaving San Diego at 9:00, you will have a hard time making San Simeon by dark. You will also be stuck on the freeway till you hit Dana Point.
The whole stretch between San Diego and Ventura will be a frustrating exercise whether on freeways or streets.
May I suggest taking the 15 freeway north from San Diego to the 210 freeway west in Ranch Cucamonga. Take the 210 west to the 118 west. through Simi Valley. Get off the 118 in Moorpark on Los Angeles Ave. and then ride through farmland to the coast and points north. Using that route, you will chop many hours off of a street ride up the coast through the L. A. Area (you will also shorten time wise, the ride thorough L. A. on the freeways).
There are a number of nice campgrounds on the beach north of Ventura if you want to stop for the night short of San Simeon IE: Carperteria SB, Gaviota SB, El Capitan SB, Refugio SB, and a bunch in the Pismo Beach area.
Depending on the day and my work schedule, I may ride with you a bit through Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. What is the date are you leaving (also your birthday)?
