    Actually, I think Death Valley would be the place to avoid in California.
    It's 117 there now.
    Forecast to hit 130.

    Yes, 40 miles west, it's 110 degrees at 3:30.

    Palm Springs and environs are expected to hit 121 today.

    I know the area very well. While I wouldn't want to live there, it's still much better than the middle of bumf**k Arizona. At least you can be in Huntington Beach or Newport in 45 minutes - on the weekend anyway.

    You and a million other people. More like 80 minutes from that side of Cajon Pass.

    And speaking from experience, since they've closed 138 between the 15 and Wrightwood, there's more cars to deal with.

    That's because everyone heading to the Antelope Valley has to go up the 15, through the pass, exit in Hesperia and head through Phelan to pick up the 138.

    Royal, ROYAL pain in the ass. Took me 2 hours to get home from Rancho Cucamonga the other day. Effiin' ridiculous.

    Yikes. I heard about the 138 being closed because of moron drivers on that stretch putting the workers in some really dangerous situations. I haven't done the drive in years, but would it be about the same time/maybe shorter to take the 210 and go to the AV on the 14?

    I read that story about the idiot drivers harassing Caltrans workers. The throwing the burrito at one cracked me up every time I read it.

    The route you suggested would take forever from SB. I've taken it before; I take it coming back from La Verne and it's an hour-45 from there at night.

    I hear 138 is supposed to re-open next month. Damn, I hope so.

    Or there's the scenic route: Highway 2 up through the San Gabriels.

    Sixty freaking miles of two-lane, curving, twisting road at 30 mph the whole way.

    I learned my lesson.

    The 138 has been a disaster for years. Always hated that road.

    210 to the 15. Learn it. Live it.
