And line up for Randy’s Donuts in Inglewood.

Decent wheels are needed in California so I ended up booking a Mustang convertible, it was better than I thought it would be. It was the V6 model not the V8 but it still had plenty of power and was really nicely spec’d definitely the best rental car Ive ever driven.

Stopped for a break in the desert and saw this group who had just driven the last 50miles off-road, apparently there are tracks everywhere, I really wanted a go, looked like heaps of fun.

mmmm… beer!

The online reviews of the Panamint Springs area in Death Valley were really sketchy, expecting something from the Hill have eyes, we struck it lucky with this little cabin, it was almost brand new

And… they have Coyotes and Road runners! We only saw photos of Roadrunners, but found this dude on the side of the road:

Not much to do in the desert at night so I sat in the freezing cold with the Coyotes and attempted some night photography, it’s harder than I thought, need more practise.

Stopped in Ventura for the night on the way back to LAX, turned out to be a choice beachside town with good sights and shops
