Day Five, Yuma to Dateland, AZ

Yuma to Dateland. Started in the rain but the day cleared up after a while so not too bad. Weaving through farm land with some muddy flooded roads and then onto the I-8 freeway most of the day. Bumpy roads today too. Had lunch at a roadside burger joint that was the highlight of the day. Other than that a lot of farm land and desert. Dateland’s big thing is a Date Shake at the one convenience store truck stop. They also had a cactus shake so we had both. They were both good mainly because we were starving. The cactus was close to a weak cherry flavor and the Date shake was like a weak chocolate flavor. Maybe because one was pink and the other brown. On to Gila Bend tomorrow.
