When you factor in Co60Slr's excellent timeline plus your traveling (lucky guy! :) ) means you'll probably look at a 2012 opening, sooner would entail the NLO-at-first route IMHO

I took my first really hot swipe in 1989, it doesn't make me a 20+ year 3.1 rad tech. Getting caught in a confabulation/embellishment like that anywhere in the hiring process is a short trip to permanent roundfile.

Another question: I typically like to commute to work on my bicycle so Arroyo Grande would be in the range for that but would the roads there support this and what about riding onsite, is that allowed?

Unless you were Lance Armstrong's pace trainer, that is an implausible and very sweaty bike commute ( looking at the map shows ~20 miles from Arroyo Grande ). I agree with SunDog that you would still be riding in a carbon-spewing vehicle either way.

There is one guy who rides his bike to the access road gate everyday a far distance.  Everyone talks about him like he is some sorta freak.  More power to ya if you can do it.  But I'm not sure how far he rides.  Some people live in los osos, there are some issues there though concerning sewage planning.  Quite a few people live up in Atascadero - Paso Robles area  due to cost of living issues.  Plan on spending mucho $$$ for a small house.  350K for a small shoebox.  That is why I wouldn't go there full time.  I was watching a buddy of mine who is full time there try to find a decent house for under 350.  It was hard, but I guess it depends on your def. of decent house and how far you are willing to drive.  Issues I decided not to deal with.  Good luck.
