Saturday, June 2nd
Had a leisurely morning getting Rhoda ready to hit the road again and still trying to keep as cool as possible as again by 8 had the air running and the sun was beating down.
|Sally has arrived - left NH in 70 degrees, arrived L.V. to 103|
P.S. The private jets coming and going out of L.V. are magnificant!
BUT, the heat kept following up - all the way through this desert - I couldn't find out the name of it:
But, it was a desert - desolate except for traffic trying to get to L.A. before dinner I think. Weird landscape yet again; barren, sandy hilly, so different. Wouldn't want to get stranded with car trouble or run out of gas - even though there was lots of traffic, it was going so fast, they wouldn't have even seen you or been able to stop (or probably wanted to stop or dinner would get cold).
We got as far as Barstow where we bought a few groceries and found a funky little RV Park called "Shady Lane". We weren't sure if the "shady" referred to the park & people or to the shade provided by the cactus but it was fine:
|Sally wanted to call Will but no phone but the booth was fun|
|Office of Shady Lane RV Park|
|Rhoda and Sally happy for the night|
|almost coast to coast|
Mileage: 171 Gas: $78 @ $3.89 Groceries (for 2): $27
Shady Lane: $28 Weather: guess? but the best of all - a beautiful almost full moon
Street name of the day: Zzyzx - no kidding - Sally saw it too and gasped at the same time as I
