Travel Blogs from Barstow
The plane trip was fine. We arrived in LA on time at 6.30 am (before we left Bundaberg - and same day!). Luggage arrived OK; found the shuttle to National car hire; and hit the road about 7.45am!
Bryan did well driving the freeways - I was a nervous wreck. It was still very misty, so not good views of the mountains - but would get an odd …
... the motel who are touring Route 66 on rented 2015 Harley Electra Glides.

After dinner we stop by the local grocery store to stock up on necessities and get back to Stardust to chill.
