Up and out the door around 6am and the temp was 61 degrees in Corona, CA. A nice cool start to the day but by Noon it was 108 degrees and just a little bit warm. We rode up to Barstow, CA on I-15 N and then took I-40 E to Topock, AZ and then got on Historic Route 66 to Oatman and then to Kingman where we are spending the night. More on Route 66 tomorrow as we will be riding the longest unbroken stretch of it that is left.
There is a video we took today of Route 66. I put my finger over the microphone so you wouldn't get all of the wind noise.
Our ride today was across the desert then up to Oatman which is said to be the "ghost town" that won't die. It is a neat little town that was started because of gold there. The miners left and let their mules go and everyday the mules come down into the town and the tourists feed them. If you ever have the chance it is worth seeing.
We then left Oatman and continued over Sitegraves Pass for unbelievable views and twisting and winding roads. A motorcycle riders dream world.
We rode a total of 303 miles today and stopped at 2:30 to get a room and do laundy again.
