We've never driven from the Santa Monica pier to Amboy on the "original" route. So we got that done.
One of the highlights driving the "surface streets" through Los Angeles was stopping at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Quite unique.
I had Debbie take this shot of the price of gas in Beverly Hills....


 Our goal was the Grand Canyon. And in Arizona we paid pretty much $3.00 less for a gallon of gas than what was posted there in Beverly Hills.
No... we didn't buy gas there.



But they will pump diesel for no extra charge, and it stinks up your hands so there's that.

based on plus gasoline at $6.19:

converting gallons into litres :  US$ 1.64 per litre
converting US$ into euro;  â‚¬ 1.35 per litre

current prices at our local gas station:  â‚¬1.52 per litre or US$ 6.92 per gallon

sounds reasonable then.

A friend took us on an all-day tour of Hollywood area cemeteries. That one's pretty cool. It sold recently and the new owners are doing more to keep it up. "Forever" wasn't actually in the contract, apparently.

I was expecting lots of celebrities stored there.
The only ones that stuck out were Micky Rooney and Mel Blanc. We evidently missed two of The Ramones. Bummer.
What amazed me... was all the Russian people buried there. And the HUGE "tombstones" covering over up to 10+ grave sites.
In fact, Debbie and I "dug into" what's up with that. Here's what we found... https://www.laweekly.com/russi...

If the Costco gasoline is "Top Tier", then no worries.  This is important in general but particularly for modern Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engines.   

Costco gas is Top Tier.  See:  TOP TIER™ Detergent Gasoline Brands

I agree.
I look at it and go "Oh well".
Kinda like music lyrics to me.
The music is most important. If the lyrics are good... added bonus.

Gas is the important part... if it's cheap... added bonus.

Why would anyone stop in Barstow?  Well, I guess if your tank was "on E" then you'd have little choice.  Though, come to think of it, my friends and I may have stopped in a diner in Barstow (or Calico maybe) around 1985 - driving from Vegas to LA.



The wife and I are celebrating our 45 wedding anniversary this early June.
We're going to finish our Route 66 trip of the parts we missed... we started in Needles, California and drove to Chicago two summers back.
We are going to Santa Monica and through the Cajon Pass, Barstow, Ludlow, Amboy. On through to Flagstaff.
Just a nice road trip to get out. Even through Barstow. California's left armpit.

Buy the way... just bought gas for the wife's Durango today. $4.09 a gallon at Costco... cheapest gas in the desert. 
Now don't you all want to move to California.
