Hi folks!

Well, I have escaped the 114F heat outside and run into a local library where the internet (and Air Con) is free!! I am currently still just south of LA on the way to a campsite in the desert. Last night I stayed in a campsite in the Joshua Trees NP, East of LA. "Where did I get the camping gear?" I hear nobody ask as this is a library and therefore no talking.... doing such a thing will get you turfed back onto the sidewalk into the heat of the California sun..... no thanks!! I have been staying with a friend called Erinn whom Amber and I met during the Inca trail. She has lent me her camping gear whilst she works today and tomorrow then I'm picking her up and we are travelling up Highway 101 together to San Fransisco! Nice.

Since the last update, I have hired a car. Its a little more expensive than the Economy options but a LOT more fun!!! Its called a Pontiac, Grand Prix. I won't go into details as some of you are not car enthusiasts, but for those of you who are, you now have some homework...

The biggest day since the last update was Disney Land!! It has been an ambition of mine to go ever since I was little. Although family holidays to Wales every summer whilst growing up were always loads of fun, I have been left with a Disney itch for 28 years.... Now at last I can say I have been, thanks to Erinn very kindly offering to take me and show me round (she grew up in Orange County, California so has been MANY times to Disney..... ironically, never to Wales though....). 14 hours (yes, from opening time at 9am to closing time at midnight) of Disney was enjoyed. Again, I manage to find a computer which does not let me download photos... Therefore watch this space in the next few days for pictures including one of me dwarfing poor Micky...... Disney was very thing I was expecting and more! Loads of tides and shows and roaming Disney characters. I well and truly reverted back to a child for the whole day ! I am slowly regaining my maturity....

Time is running out on the free hour....

More later, hope you are all well!!

John
