Topic: Sleeping accomodations for day 3 of #carweeeak

We're being extremely optimistic and have booked all the hotels for the week in anticipation of actually making past the starting line. All booked except for the dreaded day 3 "DESERT CAMP" <dun dun DUUUUUNNNNN>. So whereabouts is the end point for the day? Is it Desert Camp or Joshua Tree, because looking at a map, they're like 70 miles apart from one another. As appealing as desert camping sounds in the middle of August, the prospect of sleeping on the ground after a long day in our non-AC lemon just does not sound super relaxing. Just trying to get an idea of where we should be anticipating looking for lodging.

It's actually neither and is (an optional) desert camping night. It's close(ish) to Victorville and Barstow, which both have hotels.

Barstow, thank God. I was worried you were going to have us stop in a real dump of a town... Like Needles. Well, for those non-CA Lemoners, you're in for a treat.

Thanks for the info!
