DAY TWO SATURDAY
Today's goal-- get through Arizona without spending a dime in the state. To avoid having to buy lunch in the meanest state in the union, we decided on a substantial breakfast in California. We shared a 6-egg omelet and left about a third. Some very large people had breakfast next to us.
Drove past miles of wind generators near Palm Springs, then through Joshua Tree National Park.
The desert was not in bloom. The desert has never been in bloom when I have been there. I think it's a myth.
We filled the tank just before crossing into Arizona and we almost made it. But not quite. 20 miles from New Mexico the gauge was below empty and we were forced to spend $5 in Arizona.
Wonderful Mexican dinner in Lordsburg, NM, and a much nicer hotel with a hottub!
