Patti and I left Victorville at 10:45am this morning and arrived in Lompoc, California, at 3:25pm this afternoon driving 237 miles.
We missed a critical turn in the Palmdale area (red balloon) that cost us probably 45 minutes of lost time and maybe 20 miles of driving. We both ‘sensed’ things were not correct as we were heading North through Palmdale seeing road signs that Lancaster was upcoming so I pulled into a Carl’s Junior restaurant, went inside to use their facilities and asked a man standing in line to place his order how to get to Ventura, California. He whipped out his smart phone and (as he was bringing up the route for me to see) told me that we had to go back South to Highway 14 towards Los Angeles.
It was a bingo and we got here safely in spite of just a little Friday afternoon traffic in both Ventura and Santa Barbara.
So far it looks like we have excellent WiFi here in our Lompoc motel.
Over and Out for now.
