Risking it all and traveling to Arizona on the busiest travel day of the year. Going to try and leave early to avoid rush hour departures to the Inland Empire and the potential worst traffic in the nation.
Update: Despite some laziness and last minute packing, managed to make it to AZ in about 7 hours. No records for me as I like to chill in Indio for a bit before making the trek across the desert. Since I’ve been taking a break in Indio, the trips to Arizona seem way more manageable than when I used to just have 1 stop in Blythe. Traffic moved, but the volume of cars made passing slow vehicles more of a chore than normal. Still, it beats having to deal with airports.
