Braving the increasingly warm weather for a trip to my brother & SIL's winter quarters in Yuma. Traveling from near Santa Maria, going across California to either Needles or Blythe--haven't figured out the route yet.
What would hounds recommend as far as route so as to be able to score come decent road food? We are going to try to make it in one day, no overnight.
We'd prefer a northerly route across Tehachapi etc, rather than catching the 10 through the LA basin. Although we'd find better fare there, that traffic is a no-go for us.
Should we go B'field-Barstow-Needles-Blythe-Yuma? Looking for the fastest route, but that way looks mighty barren.
If any one travels this route and knows the chow score, please advise. Thank you!
