... at the Hi Sahara Oasis, paying over $3 to use the bathroom (we bought water, marking the first time I've paid for something in order to expel it. I might as well have opened the bottle and poured it directly into the toilet. I digress...).
Finally, mercifully, we arrived in Barstow, CA. Folks, I'd like to say that we dined at a fine restaurant and sampled the traditional Barstow cuisine while supporting a local ...

... when we get back to the RV. It's dark now but not cold. We could walk back but decide to take a cab. Well this adds to our adventures as our cab driver as the music blaring albeit our era of songs and just to add a bit more interest he is a bit of a character. His voice is very raspy so he is hard to hear over the music. He has a few wisecracks about our accent suggesting that English is our second language. He tells a couple of stories relating to his time in the ...
