Today we checked out of The Luxor (after a fat buffet breakfast!) and headed south into the desert!
To get to San Diego you have to take the I-15 all the way from Vegas. It's a long hot and straight road that goes on for about 350 miles. It crosses through Mojave Preserve and falls just south of Death Valley, so it's not a road to mess about with! The temperature was at least 100F (36C) all the way with clear blue skys! We left Vegas with a full tank of petrol and 2 gallons of chilled water - so we were up for it!
The I-15 is very straight and boring, as cruise control takes care of the speed all you have to do is steer!
The best part of the trip was the fact that we had to go to the loo every hour due to the amount of water that we had consumed! Anyway...
We arrived in San Diego at around 6pm (an hour ago) and are about to check out the scene here. We're staying at USA Hostels San Diego which is based in the very cultural Gas Lamp area of town. We've managed to dump the car in a Parking Lot for $10 for 24 hours. Chuffed. Anyway. We have to go!! Gotta check out this place!!
Our priority is to get the photos on line and everyday we are trying! We have lots to put online so it's going to cost loads now!!
Lots of love Helen and Gareth x x x x
