Better late than never i guess. On May the 3rd in 2013 Margaret and i arrived in Los Angeles for our 2nd visit. Arrived at 7am on the friday. We hopped on a shuttle bus and went to Dollar Rental cars. We had booked it through Auto Europe, a broker. Just had to add the roadside insurance on. Saved a few hundred dollars by going through broker. Was advised on a forum not to update the car though as they could then charge you the difference. We hired a Ford Taurus with its big trunk so as to hide all our gear there. We then drove out of town and headed for Barstow stopping on the way at Carl's Jnr for a feed. As you have to have your first night booked when you fly in, we had booked at the Quality Inn in Barstow.
We left Barstow after a good breakfast and headed for route 66. Dropped own into Kingman and there was a custom car show on in the streets. We had a great time looking at the cars. One part there i went back to the car to get a hat. We lost each other for a while and Margaret walked into a shop and mentioned she had lost her husband. Lady looked straight at her and said "thats a good thing isnt it". hahaha. Ive tried that since but i dont get the same reaction lol.
Seligman was the next stop for a look. Love all the 50's 60's stuff on display there. Had my photo taken with Marilyn. She didnt say much but that was ok. Went into the hotel there and met Tom who told us some good stories of Roadrunners.
We dragged ourselves away from Seligman and headed for Williams for the night. Stayed at a cheap motel. Wasnt flash but it was a bed and shower. Looking forward to going to Grand canyon in morning.
As i have no idea what im doing here as far as uploading photo's ill go and see what happens.
