I had already planned on leaving Joshua Tree this morning, but when nasty winds kept the Rolling Steel Tent swaying and shaking all night, I took it as Nature's validation of my plan. So I'm catching some breakfast and free wifi at McDonald's in Twentynine Palms before hitting the road to the coast.
I had considered taking the extra slow route through the San Bernardino Mountains, up to Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead, then connecting to the Angeles Crest Highway. It would be a narrow, twisty drive down Memory Lane for me. I used to go up there when I lived in Los Angeles and Orange County. I was a twenty-something dude with a third-hand Porsche 911. I wasn't a great driver, but I looked cool. That was the important thing. Now, wrestling a van along those roads would have zero cool factor, and drivers of sports cars and motorcycles would be cursing my slow ass.
You might look cool driving a Porsche but you can't park it and live in the back.ReplyDelete
True, Porsche is wayyyy too small for camping, I'm still trying to figure out how some people can live in a Prius !!!ReplyDelete
If I still had a Porsche, there are women who would want to take me home with them.Delete
You write that as if it is a good thing! LOL Yet men seem to condemn all the "gold diggers." Hmmm.Delete
It's cool as long as it's an equal exchange. As a friend once said (more or less), "I married him for his car, he married me for my boobs."Delete
I think you would be safer staying in the van !!!ReplyDelete
