“Life is a journey, not a destination.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
This post will be the final part of our ‘Journey to the West’ trip… and it only took me 3 weeks to post this since August. My bad… been a bit busy which is a good thing because I’m actually making money! Once this post is out of the way, I can post more current stuff I’ve been working on. Now back to where we left off…
In Part 3 of our Journey to the West, Henry and I stopped by 86FEST at Auto Club Speedway for awhile. Afterwards, our plan was to hit up Angeles Crest to get some sweet mountain shots. Little did we know the route taken from Auto Club Speedway was the opposite direction where we wanted to go….
We were pretty much on ‘E’ leaving the ACH and made it down for ramen dinner with John and company. Tired from 86FEST, 2 hr cruise through ACH, and ramen for dinner, it was time to call it a nite and rest up for tomorrow’s one day trip back to Houston.
Morning came and we made one last final stop at Porto’s for their potato balls and other goods. No pics because it was probably on snapchat. We started our trip back home around 11AM…
Henry and I arrived back in Houston around 11:30AM or a little over 24 hrs of driving. Anyone who can make that drive in under 20 hrs is a beast!
Photos from above were from my cellphone and taken randomly during the trip. A few of the TRD Griffon, JZ and his new crib, taco place Linh&Karissa took us to,
Driving out to the West has given me confidence that the FRS can do it all. Cross country, track, street – it can do it all. Time to raise it up and put some bigger tires on for some rally cross. Jk, no time fo dat. Other than the bad battery, the FRS handled the trip well.
Thanks for reading or viewing my trip photos. It was a fun experience and I’d recommend everyone to do it once in their life. For me, once won’t be enough. I think I’m gonna pick up an SUV and do some off road adventures. Thinking about a 4runner…. but we will see.
