We met up with Gus and Stephanie about 1 hour from Sacramento and they followed the Outlaw to Bakersfield. We arrived late, about 1:30AM and got the coach set up for the night but stayed up until 3AM chatting which made for a late start today. After some light breakfast we were ready to head out… actually the girls took the Outlaw while Gus and I did a quick trip to Costco for a few last-minute items. Back on the road and into the high desert Gus found a bad ass shortcut to catch up with the ladies however someone had gone and put up a barbed wire fence in the desert so we had to turn around and take some traditional asphalt dammit.
We caught up with the girls in Red Rock Canyon State Park just off Highway 14 and had a nice lunch compliments of Stephanie:
This was a buffet!
Here is some views of the parking area, just beautiful:
Back on the road we had to make a stop for gas and attempt to fit the monster motorhome somewhere close to the gas pump without taking out the service station awning.
Next stop was for some Jerky at a place that I can only assume Gus either runs remotely or once owned:
And here he is, Mr. Jerky himself…
The ladies took some time to drive heavy equipment around the area:

Time to ramble on down the road:
Gus knew of an overlook so we all jumped in his FJ and took a ride to spot:

Back on the road and headed to Furnace Creek (another one of Gus’s advertisement worthy photos) :
