Will you tell the folks back home I nearly made it?
Had offers but don’t know which one to take
Please, don’t tell ’em how you found me
Don’t tell ’em how you found me
Gimme a break, gimme a break
On the way back from L.A. We needed a pit stop. We pulled off at the Eagle Mountain exit. This is California: there are in n Out burgers and Chevrons on every corner, right? First things first. Gas.
Must be the exception to the rule. Let’s drive on to Desert Center. There is probably food and some hi test.
I wonder if this place has Twinkies…
Maybe they’re just all closed for the night. Maybe we’ll just find a motel or a rental cabin for the night.
[Ed. note: to be “fair,” Desert Center is NOT an abandoned wasteland full of ruin porn. Or at least not JUST that – Kinda like Detroit. There IS an active Caltrans maintenance depot, after all.]
