After leaving Los Angeles LAX at about 0930am first we stopped at Wall Markt to get some supplies for the car. We bought drinks and a cooler for in the car, so we didn't have to stop when we were on the road. Our second was in Desert Hot Springs just a quick photo stop while stoping at a sort of visitor's centre/museum. It was closed so we stopped only for a few minutes. By this time temperature was approching the 100 degrees (fahrenheit) so pretty hot. We were glad getting back in the car en turning on the AC. Second town we stoped was Twentynine Palms. This town is 'famous' about the training facility for the US military for training there soldiers for there deployment for Irak.
Our final destination that day was Needels 307 miles from Los Angeles. Our first stop was the dinner stop were we had some mexican food and a bottle of beer. Tasted good after a long day driving. Then we searched for our hotel, we took the Best Western Royal Inn
just next to the colorado river, fine hotel good prices and a nice swimmingpool. After check in that is what we did using the pool for some cooling down. Temperature was still way up even when the sun went down. We left the pool at about 0930pm and went back too our room were we went to bed and dreamed about our first day of our trip!!
