Rocks,Valleys,Deserts and apple pie Another early day....... it's killing me! We set out early to miss the traffic and today we're off to Twentynine Palms CA with a few detours on the way.

Day 6- Sunday. Man this was nice. We did nothing. We slept in and sat in the airconditioning all day. I was ready for that.

Three guys are living here at the house so they played World of WarCraft and I got to nap and relax. I was beat. We had McDonalds. Life is good. We watch the three movies "Feast". What a hoot. I had only seen the first one, when it came out on DVD. It was one of the Project Greenlight movies. So I had watched on TV the process of making that film. I had shared my enthusiam for the flick with Scout and over the years ... read more
