We left the Stage coach hotel, we spent 2 nights there, the call of the swimming pool and a big comfy bed was too much to resist
This hotel is just outside of death Valley and if it was cooler you could walk to it, it wasn't and we didnt
We spent the day just lazing around the pool, drinking ice cold beer, listening to audio books …
... the motel who are touring Route 66 on rented 2015 Harley Electra Glides.
Had a well earned dip in the pool - nice and cold!
Barstow was pretty dead with a lot of places closed at 9:00pm - ended up at a 24hour Denny's diner for dinner. Had a really good toasted turkey sandwich.
I will sleep well tonight after a pretty exhausting day in the heat
... but always wanted to go to.
$8 (about £6) per person and thats for 2 films. There are also 2 screens as well so you can choose from 4 films. We watched Fast and Furious 7 which seemed fitting as it was about cars and set in LA. Fantastic experience! You tune your FM radio to a channel in order to hear the sound, loved it and would love to have one near by in the UK!
Today we are off to San Bernadino, California.
Left Vegas yesterday to travel to our next stop, Calico just outside Barstow. The trip saw us cross the Mojave desert in sweltering temperature - even the fridge / air con is struggling in these temps which is not a surprise! The Mojave valley is eerily beautiful with it's back drop of mountains mixed in with a landscape of sand ...
... like it's from the 70s.
The Main Street in Barstow is part of historic Route 66 so we cruise down and pick our home for the night - Stardust Inn. We got the room for a cheap and cheerful price of $45. We drop our stuff and head to Denny's for dinner. We get a talapia with mash and veggies and a chicken noodle soup to share. After dinner we stop by the local grocery store to stock up on necessities and get back to Stardust to chill.
