- At the Green Tree Inn Coffee Shop in Victorville, CA I wasn't able to get any coffee (!!!) but they did have some pretty epic Route 66 posters on their windows which made the stop totally worth it. Paughey was also very thankful for the chance to stretch his legs and get in some good sniffs before we ventured across the Mohave!
- It was just after sunset, still light out but no sun in the sky, when we made a stop in Needles, CA to have dinner at Carls Jr. and let Paughey stretch his legs again so we were not anticipating the blast of heat when we got out of the car. It was 104° at 7:30pm.
- And finally, we did a quick gas fill up before heading into Lake Havasu, AZ where we are spending the night.
At approximately 9pm we crossed the California/Arizona border and I am officially no longer a California resident!
