Middle Of Nowhere

We covered a lot of miles today but wanted to stop north of Bakersfield for the night. We passed one nice big truck stop, thinking there was another one ahead but there was not. We are in a gas station, restaurant complex on I-5 parked on a wide street that serves as an exit for the big rigs leaving the Carl's Jr and Chevron station.

We hope to get up early and head towards Parker, AZ (about a 6 hour drive) where we will get the air conditioning on the Honda topped up at The Front End Shop where we had the Mazda done last year. We have to get it done Friday or Saturday as they are closed Sunday. I called them and was told to "Just bring it in. No appointment necessary!"

We walked over to Carl's Jr and got a fish sandwich meal each. I ate 1 1/4 and Norma ate 3/4. It does not sound like it is going to be a quiet night. The trucks are passing pretty regularly.


  1. Isn't that a great little place in Parker? We will be in Parker on Tuesday.

  2. Working your way down slowly. Fish sandwich sounds good, it's been years since I had one. May fry one up this weekend.

  3. Middle of nowhere sounds like all of Bakersfield; not our favorite part of California. Glad you are getting everything fixed up. Should be good to go for a quiet Mexican vacation.
