Daggett Ridge

Took Golem 1 for a drive back and forth across the infamous Daggett Ridge, a.k.a. the Robots' Graveyard. It was tricky and it is easy to see how vehicles get in trouble. At one point I got temporarily stuck. However, all systems were functioning well.

When I drive on the highway for hours and hours and then get off, normal traffic speeds seem slow and dreamlike. In the same way, a dirt road might normally seem a bit rough, but after an hour or two of driving over really rough terrain, the same dirt road seems preternaturally gentle.

I got sunburned.

We had lunch and dinner at the Slash X. Their Mojave chicken sandwich is pretty good.
