After a quick stop for dinner and fuel at the Dairy Queen in Ludlow, Shane led us north across Interstate 40 into the darkness of the Mojave. There’s just something special about night wheeling in the desert that makes us want to go fast. We eventually found a suitable camping spot and unloaded the firewood so we wouldn’t freeze in the 25-degree temperatures. We all gathered around the fire and discussed various intellectual subjects, such as flying saucers, implants, and strange looking clouds. We also gave our theories on who the office chimichanga bandit could be.
