Vacation Day 2. Staying the night in Blythe.

Robin and I planned to stay the night in Palm Springs area but it was way windy! We had made good time, so we decided to stay in Blythe and catch a game tomorrow. Made good time due to traffic travelling crazy fast. On Interstate 10 I was passed many times while going over 80! I checked down at my speedometer while just keeping up with the flow. I was going nearly 100! I slowed down and set the cruise for a little over 80, which was still over 10 miles an hour over the limit. The Galant got nearly 30 miles per gallon and had great top end. Flew over the grape vine.

Blythe grows lettuce and only gets 3 inches of rain a year! May have to check out the employment opportunity. (Kind of grubby esthetically though.)

In years gone by we (CDF) had a county fire station at Blythe and that was always the threat when you screwed up; "Keep it up and you're gonna end up in Blythe."

I had a chance to visit with a couple of CDF engine companies at a truck stop in Blythe last year when we were coming back from spring training and they were quite happy to be there as they have a new station and it has grown quite a bit in the last 30 years.

Have fun - ERE

Ernie: Blythe looks like quite a mix of have and have not.

Rambo: May end up that way if I can't figure out what to do here.

Blythe grows cotton, it has some of the busiest cotton gins around.
