Don't waste time or time will waste you

I forgot to post this at the beginning of my trip, but I was having mechanical issues until the last minute and wasn't even sure I'd be able to go.

But it all worked out and I'm here now in Mesa, AZ with family at the end of Day 2.

I got a late start on Friday so I changed my route to LA from Hwy1 to I-5. Less scenic, more monotonous, quite a bit hotter, but it went smoothly and I had fun playing traffic leapfrog with the other cars amidst all the semis.

Today was more fun, mostly because I went through Joshua Tree. It was my only non-interstate segment of the day, and my first one of the trip, and it was gorgeous. Outside of Joshua Tree, back on I-10, it was overcast pretty much the entire way into Phoenix. The clouds looked stormy, but I only got a few sprinkles, so that just meant it was cloudy and cool and smelled like rain. I couldn't have asked for better desert weather.

And I'm not leaving my GPS on the entire way, for my phone's battery's sake, but I'm trying to check in with Firepin at every stop, so you can follow me at:
