Alternate Plan

Because of the fires in the L.A. area, we are considering a side trip through Bakersfield and San Simeon to tour the Hearst Castle.

Then the logical thing would be to take the coast highway to Santa Monica. Then we'd have to drive the final part of Route 66 backward to San Bernardino and perhaps miss the Barstow to San Bernardino section altogether.

We'll see how the time goes. Of course, this inconvenience is nothing compared to what the people in the fire zones are suffering.
