Food and gas and shops in the Mojave desert

Baker, CA , population 600 (!) is one of the few civilization pit stops when you are driving from LA to Las Vegas

Gas stations shops and restaurants for a lunch break comfort break or just driving break, I am sure for many it is like it was for us a stop of an hour or so.

Well on Friday 9th May 2008 as we headed from a night stop in LA after landing iat LAX airport and picking up our rental car in the morning, this is the town where - after 14 years ! - I proposed......!..Stopped off again 2010.......

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Convenient along the Interstate
  • Cons:Very much a pit stop for 99.9% visitors I suspect?
  • In a nutshell:A place always in our history, as above!
