Traffic on the 210 was horrible for a Saturday late morning but perhaps that is the way it is. Some times it was just bumper to bumper. I would be glad to hit I-10 for the final stretch home. It would be a good 2 hours before that happened.
I-10 traffic was moving well and my next stop would be Palm Springs for lunch and fuel. I ended up in Indio just east of Palm Springs and I needed a good rest. Lunch at the Spot 29 Casino sounded like a good idea and it ended up being so. Myself and the Jeep all fueled up it was a good 4 to 5 hours home and I was ready.
With Arizona being backwards and not observing Day Light Savings Time, it was getting dark fast. Instead of sunset being at 8:30, it was coming fast shortly after 7 and by 7:30 it was dark and I had another 40 miles to go. There are two things I don't like about Arizona, the summer heat and sunrise at 5am with sunset at 7:30. I get cheated with shorter hours of daylight and in the winter, it's dark at 4:30. I am missing the long days of the norther latitudes but still there is no place like home and I pulled in my driveway before 8:30. What a relief and the end of an awesome trip.
