... a marina and boat pens in a little man made lagoon! The temperature outside had reached 41 degrees, so it was a very quick photo stop and then back into the Dodge in the air-con! We decided to give the next section of the route a miss and hit I40W instead and made into Barstow by mid afternoon - booking straight into motel well away from the huge rail yards in the town. Barstow is a rail hub and we had seen all sorts of trains along the way - mostly ...

The smell if thousands of onions from trucks all around us filled the heavy air. I passed ...
... plan is to rise at 4.45am and set off just as the sun comes up so we get a couple of hours of cooler weather and some miles done. We’ve found motels at Roach, 108 miles from here, which will mean that we only have 40 or so miles to do the next day to Vegas. Here we will be enjoying the lap of luxury in a gorgeous hotel booked for us as a wedding present by the very kind Dr Fyfe! Hopefully the thought of the pool will keep us going through the tough times ...
