into LA basin

The rest of this page is dedicated to my poor, hard working husband who drove a 27 foot travel trailer, which we have only owed for less than a week, through the LA Basin on a Friday afternoon.

He described it as requiring the concentration as flying IFR ( on instruments ) in a storm.

Mark concentrating on navigating the maze of LA freeways. Notice the Billy Goat beard I'm going to make him either trim it or manage it better. He's a good driver but sometimes I have to keep him in line!
