It is nice to be in the desert and out of the cold and wet of home. But the change is too soon and as much as I like the hot, whew...let's just say it is wonderful here and I need a couple days to acclimate. We spent last night at Amboy on old Route 66 east of Barstow. Like Bakersfield, Barstow is not a place you want to stay in any longer than to get gas. Nasty. We drove through Desert Center then east through Blythe (another one of those "B" towns you don't want to write home about) and on into Arizona. Will camp in the desert tonight and figure out where to next from there.
