Got a call from Dayton Saturday night at about 10:00 0′ clock that they had made it to BLYTHE, CA (KBLH). That leaves about 400 miles to go on Sunday. I remember from my days working in radio that Blythe, CA would often hold the record for hottest place in the United States. Fly Safely!

I haven’t had a lot of contact with Dayton today, but, at about 2:30 Central time (12:30 Pacific time), they were at Lancaster, CA, about 100 miles from the California coastline. If all goes well, they should reach their destination before dark today.
UPDATE: They made it to San Luis Obispo on the west coast at about 5:00 O’Clock Central time. Now, they’ll fly up the California coastline to their final destination near San Francisco.
UPDATE: They made it! Landed at GILROY, CA (E16) at about 8:00 Central time. Got a call from Dayton that he’s flying out over the Pacific to look for Whales. And the adventure continues.
