We are spending the weekend in Palm Springs. Itâ€™s not a super long drive from home; around six hours or so and itâ€™s just up to Phoenix and then across the desert on I-10. Follow the signs for Los Angeles but donâ€™t go all the way.
The drive was uneventful. We had a nice lunch stop at a sports bar in Buckeye (west of Phoenix) and we filled up with gas at the last stop in Arizona before crossing into California, where fuel goes up by around $1 per gallon.
Iâ€™m looking forward to the long weekend. Iâ€™m sure itâ€™ll still be weird in this pandemic era and Iâ€™ll be striving to wear my mask and maintain social distancing. If thereâ€™s one thing Iâ€™ve learned during the pandemic is that we can no longer trust our fellow (American) neighbors to do the right thing. Look out for you and your family.
Iâ€™ll be happy to enjoy the relaxing time.
