road trip

our plans for the day involved driving out to primm, nevada for the night. we all piled into adam and als cars. adam figured it would be a bit of fun if we all got the chance to spend some time together on the way. primm being a four hour drive, he thought the best way to do this was to set an alarm for every hour and when the alarm went off we would pull off at the closest exit and switch up the passengers! it was a fun little game, and it allowed us to get to know each other better. as we left we were joined by kelley, als friend, and amy; the seven of us had a fun time of musical car seats the whole way!
the trip was very scenic, we drove through the city of la, we even got to drive past san dimas which i particularly enjoyed (it where bill and teds excellent adventure took place! most excellent!), we drove past the famed zzyzx road, we drove through mountains, and even through deserts, including death valley. one thing that i thought was strange and cool was all the abandoned gas stations that littered the highway. it felt like it was something out of a movie. one of the times the alarm went off we pulled into an exit with a gas station only to find it empty and boarded up. we pulled in anyway for our seat shuffle. as we were standing there an couple guys in a beat up truck pulled up and warned us to stay off the land. it was kinda creepy- those guys seemed like they came straight out of 'the hills have eyes'...
we chatted a lot and got to know each other better, al handed out rubber bands, and much music was rocked out to.
