After many miles of country roads and wide open interstates, we had to adjust--quickly!--to multi-lane freeways, lane shift exits, and merging cross traffic at 70 mph in the slow lane. Luckily we qualified as a 'carpool' and could travel in the HOV lanes. We got an early start and missed most of the afternoon commute, which starts about 3 p.m.
After a quick stop at niece/cousin Kathy Haynes' office at Warner Bros. to pick up a key, Julia and Winkie took to streets--driving the local boulevards to Kathy's house, and collapsed on her sofa, almost 3,700 miles after our start. Catching our breath, our first stop was to a local supermarket to pick up sushi and salad, and then extract Winkie's stuff from the crammed car to make room for Julia's essentials for tomorrow's UCLA dorm move-in.
