I spent 10 years in Los Angeles. Every year I attended the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas. I had the option of flying or driving. No contest. The 5 hour drive was best!. It’s an awesome drive on I-15 smack through the middle of the Mojave desert. I tossed my CW paddle in the car one year and put it on the desert floor. An “end of days” image.
