Well I don’t know if I love the place, but I’m here. I found a hotel in Pasadena that will be my base of operations for the next couple of days. I need to get to the nearest Mitsubishi dealership and have a 30K service performed. Then I want to drop by Road Race Engineering and see the place. I’ll also ask them where my stuff is 🙂
It was an early drive out of Phoenix and my head was killing me. I went to a friend’s party the night before. I didn’t think I had much at all to drink but heck – who knows. I just know my head was banging for a good three hours. I gritted my teeth and kept the pedal down as I took I-10 west. Sorry folks, I know that I’ve said that I will do my best to avoid the interstates but in this situation “no can do”.
Frankly, I was happy to leave the hundred plus degree weather of the Phoenix area far behind. Its a great place with terrific people, but man this time of year the heat is tough. When I finally stopped for some breakfast there was this SOR racer on a trailer.
In the Moronos valley there were, not hundreds, but thousands of wind mills generating electricity. As you can guess, there was plenty of wind in this valley. Here are just a few photos:
Four hundred miles and six hours (well maybe closer to five) I was checking into my hotel and figuring out where all the locations were of the places I wanted to visit while I am here.
The fun stuff will happen tomorrow. I’ll keep everyone posted.
