From Oakland to LA

We left Oakland on Friday night about 7pm with hopes of finding a Motel 6 in Santa Clarita, CA (just north of LA). We arrived in Santa Clarita after 1am and no Motel 6. So we continued on a few more miles to where a friendly gas station attendant told us there was a Motel 6. 8 miles vacancy. The hotel next vacancy. Heading east toward I-210 there was a Super vacancy. So, we back-tracked I don't know how far to a town called Castaic and we stayed at the Castaic Inn--a little more than what we hoped to spend, but it beats sleeping in the truck again. The next morning we visited a good friend of mine from college and his wife, Tom and Michelle Reeves who live in the San Fernando valley adjacent to one of Jack Hayford's Church On The Way campuses. Tom is studying in the King's Seminary there. We had a great visit with them and it was a lot of fun to catch up. Tom and Michelle, you are a blessing to us!

    That would be great, Brandon. I knew you lived somewhere around there, but didn't realize it was Santa Clarita. It's good to hear from you.
