i've got maps. will i need weather reports? what if i decide to change hotels or what if it starts pouring and i chicken out on camping? i will have to use the phone. oh no.
i'm staying in santa monica the last night. i did chicken out on the reno/snow thing as i see it is supposed to snow all week there so chances are the roads would not all be plowed and i am in a rental car with the minimum of insurance so i think a drive up the coast instead of through the mountains might be more advisable.
will have to drive through LA to get to santa monica. i have never driven in LA. i hear there are nothing but freeways there. could be a shock coming in off the desert.
