As usual it start early in the morning. By 8.30 AM I am on the road again heading south. The road is still magnificent. Talked to Matthew over the phone and he was wondering weather I would be able to make it by the next couple of days. I am supposed to meet Matthew and Lee in Indio California. Still a long way to go for me so I decide that when I will reach San Francisco I better leave this great road (California #1) and get on the highway # 5 south toward Los Angeles to make it on time.
The ride from San Francisco to Indio is monotonous as I follow I 5 all the way. I spend the night in a motel on the way. I am 150 miles from Indio California which gives me plenty of time to meet the guys in the early afternoon the next day.
The following afternoon I arrive in Indio and go straight to change my tires at the mechanic. There I meet Matthew, Lee, and Matthews’s friend Greg. The plan is to stay over at Greg and Rose place for the night and leave first thing in morning for Mexico. I personally wish to thank Greg and his wife Sharon for the great hospitality in their beautiful california home. I had the best ahi tuna I ever had in a very long time. We set in their garden by the fire for a drink until it was time to go to bed and get ready to enter Mexico the following morning. A truly pleasant evening. Thank you.
