Good food, good people and good price.

(pics coming, but they don't do it justice) Yosemite to Barstow was the first real test of driving endurance, and it went fine. It was good to see the agricultural wealth of California from ground level, but the most impressive ...
... out by security. We stumbled down sunset in a drunken mess just about ready to throw in the towel but not before dropping into iHop for some late night munch to soak up some of that alcohol.

So we hopped in another taxi hoping for a quick relaxing ride back to our room, no chance, this is LA, ...
