Oldest nephew is getting married so we flew out to Bakersfield California Thursday evening.
We 're staying in Hot Springs. In the middle of nowhere. Reception is spotty. Went to the Sequoias, looked at the big trees.
Rental Sentra drives nice enough, but was struggling in the mountains.
The roads are a blast, though. I'm pretending I'm doing Pikes Peak.
Who knew there were hill Jack areas out here? Lots of friendly folks with Southern & Western accents. My youngest wore his Trump 2020 shirt (roll eyes) & no one assaulted him.
We fly back Monday.
Oldest got us free airfare, which is nice.
