! It was super hot and at one point we had to turn the airconditioning in the car down in order to prevent the car engine from overheating! We stopped just at the beginning of the Valley for a cooldown swim. I wasnt feeling very swimmy so I left the schmidts to have a dip whilst I went in search of juuuuice! I should mention before even reaching the pool we stopped off at a hotel thinking the pool was here and all I can say is what a creepy creepy hotel! The place was empty and to reach reception you climbed down a sort of minners tunnel?!? creey as...the walls were lined with pictures of town from 1992-2012 but as we said was this a line of peoples faces who the creepy hotel had kidnapped and murdered?? were we next to have our faces photoshopped on the wall?haha This teeny town was the last place to stop before entering death valley but the hotel was completely deserted ...it was like something out a horror movie! So we made it out the hotel alive and the schmidts cooled off nicely in the pool. Natalie and I both noticed that people liked to stare at us as we wandered around the pool so I've came to the conclusion were either really ugly or people in death valley are slightly strange and horror movie material??? hahahahahaha.
We survived death valley and had a good time wasting 10hours in the car..........ill never ever get sick of playing my airguitar for rowan for hours straight pha!Were now on the otherside of the valley and in a lovely hotel which looks out over the mountains which is famous for old cowboy and western movies!
Love to you all X
Unfortunately today was nothing to write home about. The views of death valley were utterlly amazing but for various reasons the mood in momo/schmidt camp today was very low. The maw has had to fly back home early and therefore the two amegios.....jojo and maw are now riding California as one... It's just me from now on. I wasnt even going to continue this bog on as lets face it who's shirley without the temple..... who's david beckham without his goldenballs and whats jojomomo does cali without the maw! However I said at the begining this would document the highs and lows and I know Grandpa would be telling me to continue documenting our adventure to you all.So Emotions aside, Day 11 and maw on a plane we made our 10hour journey through Death Valley. Death Valley was HOT HOT HOT. Utterly Hot...I know I keep going on about the heat here but zeesh man I'm permently walking around with a fan,factor 30 and a perm! Death Valley was well.....a winding road through a desert Valley....duh incase you didnt realise thaat
