We are safe in Las Vegas. We ended up leaving Sacramento at 11:40 rather than 2 am. Ming’s arms hurt. So we got here earlier. BOB behaved itself wonderfully. I grocery shopped, and we have nice foods. We did laundry, which is hanging on the line. Drank tea, keeping cool.
Our verdict: midnight driving is great. I regaled Ming with tales of grad school, and we talked about our friends. It was fun. I had caffeine and was anxious but not too anxious.
We stopped at a Denny’s in Bakersfield for breakfast around 4:30? When we left the restaurant, tummies full, the sky was a beautiful deep blue.
