Slow to finish getting ready to leave, we were on the road at about Noon yesterday — not quite the 8am target I was shooting for. The trip to LA was mostly uneventful, although I did end up driving in a circle because I thought we had made a wrong turn at the I-10/I-5 interchange and back-tracked a couple of miles to find out we had gone the correct direction the first time around. Traffic on I-10 was fairly smooth until the last 10 miles before our turn on the 405. Those miles were all bumper-to-bumper stop-n-go until just before the turn-off. We arrived at the hotel about 7pm.
