    Aside: What's with that spelling of Bakery? Is it supposed to be German? It's not. Don't quite get it. (German: Bäckerei)

    Nevermind. It's Dutch. Duh->ME!

    That's a good well-rounded tour, and any stops which involve obtaining meat or breads really speak to me.

    Lots of pictures of the destination; not so many of the road. I've driven US 395 - once - returning from Reno / Lake Tahoe. The stretch from Bishop to anything resembling civilization seems to take for-ev-er. After 4-5 hours in the car to even get to Bishop from Tahoe in the first place, it's a killer.

    Be interesting to get his thoughts on the car and the drive.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!

    It's always interesting to see how the painting on "Miss Alabama" (your first picture) changes over the years.
  • Curious to see the mpgs...
  • @Michaell - The interstates - 40, 15 & 10 - make 395 look like the Appian Way. Maybe I'm sentimental (because I made some very special trips up 395 during my formative years), but it does seem like 395 has a lot to see & do compared to other highways in this region. But yeah, it's pretty dull around California City...
