I stayed first off in a Quality Inn on Olympic/Bonnie & Brae,
the hotel was okay but a woman above us was boxing stuff until two in the morning, this went on for three days. As much as I complained nothing was done so we moved on to Ontario where I had booked rooms in the Sheraton at the airport.Next time that is where I´ll fly into and give LAX a miss.
After Pomona I went up to Springville to visit with Mark Hamilton
of MAD Electrical, he showed us around up there, giant redwoods etc. They get about four hours of sun light up there and it did get rather chilly.
I then went on down to Santa Monica, just to look at the Pacific
really, then tootled back over to Ontario to get the NHRA museum
before flying home.
I did not expect culture shock as I know pretty much how you all live over there, but food was difficult, more for my wife. Too much Mexican and Chinese, for us here that would be a place to visit as a treat not everydayfood.
I was amazed at the amount of spending going on, we spent some time in Ontario Mills Mall and at every turn there was someone handing over fistfuls of dollar bills, for extreems on that go to Disney.
You have so much space out there, all roads are a decent size and apart from a few morons driving was very pleasant and everbody was polite.
As I planned this trip at the last minute I did not get to sort out places to buy parts, I´ll do better next time.
I did get a used fueller piston out of one of Amatos cars, does that count ?
Just loaded more pics into my gallery.
