Entered freeway for twenty miles. Rode thru truck stop no problem. Trucks /cars gave room all day. Got off frwy to McD s another desert homie at McD s locked bike in place. Got two sausage biscuits , reg size drink, coffee. Every old white looks like SANTA , fat, beard, acting kinda weird. A young Hispanic women came in PJ s. I had my own little area. Maybe because I've already rode 20 miles and no deodorant. Got a sweet tea refill and a lady was putting small pieces of candy cane in tea. Asked if I wanted one said sure , couldn't really taste difference. More Santa like people came. I left for more frwy .
Left the 10 for the 60 highway. Rode across the desert valley then over a small hill to Salome. Ate across street at only place. Remembering every semi open/ close diner has a sign prime rib? Ordered a burger , potatoe salad, Pepsi, and ice cream. 8/ 9 cars/ trucks out front , I'm the only one on there the rest are in the bar. Are then back to room to get offy feet,watching final4 , so do. This place been been here before the war.
