So I met up with Mark out in the Mojave Desert this afternoon after my departure being delayed by my boss this morning. He thought it was hot! Wait until we reach Palm Springs tomorrow afternoon! We worked our way through Palmdale and into the mountains. Up Elizabeth Cyn Rd, out Lake Hughes road then some super slab to the 5/210 split where we went our seperate ways.
Seems Mark was a little tired. He spent last night sleeping on top of a picnic table at Cedar Grove, where the road ends in Kings Canyon. He was to beat to even set up a tent. So today was probably a low mile day for him. I arrived home at 6:30 this evening, about the same time Mark should reach his Hotel room at the base of the Crest.
Tomorrows journey looks to be about 400 miles for Mark and 500 for me. Here is the rough plan.
6:30 AM at Jays Shell. Base of the Crest>
Crest to Nukes>BigT>Angeles Forest> Mt Emma> to Wrightwood>Crestline>Arrowhead>Big Bear>38>Palm Springs>74>Hemet>Elsinore>San Juan Capistrano, where Mark will crap out and I'll Super Slab it back to Simi Valley.
OK, so Mark takes more pictures than anyone I've ever met. But he is very entertaining. So I'm not even going to post my crappy pictures. You'll have to wait until September for Marks. He said he has taken a couple thousand so far!
Dang Tim will your server handle that?
