A couple/few weeks ago some guys that Scott works with whipped up a plan for an overnight ride to the desert. The idea was for us to depart on Saturday afternoon from the Westside of LA. We’d circuitously make our way across the Ortega highway pass, through Elsinore, over to Idyllwild, up to Yucca Valley and overnight in Pioneertown.
In Pioneertown we stopped into Pappy and Harriet’s. Scott seemed thrilled to end his day with a steak and a cold beer.
The next morning we were off. We bombed through Joshua Tree. Then made our way around the Salton Sea, through the 116 degree heat of the Anza Borrego Desert, eventually making our way back over to the coast and the much cooler air.
All in all, 612 miles in a day and a half. Not a bad way to break in my second set of Cokers.
