Is there water at the Soledad Mission? If so, problem solved, as it is either right on or very close to your route (it's not in the town of Soledad, but you probably knew that.
The other possible solution: a CamelBak. Not the most elegant way to go, I know, but it's about equal to three or four large water bottles, depending on what size bladder you get, and they can be had in pretty minimalist designs. Two large bottles and a 100oz, CamelBak means you have over a gallon of liquid with you. Downside, that's 8 lbs. extra weight. Upside, you will plenty to get you through.
