It comes and goes as a tourist thing. I think the last incarnation is as an undergroundish, trenches, amazing garden.
Salton sea and slab city is worth a jaunt through. NO ONE will ever top that story at a cocktail party.
Sounds like you're pretty familiar with the route. You cite food and fuel is few and far between. I have a toad for emers and avg about 7.5 mpg. Curious what mileage you get so I'll know if I can comfortably make it or will give up the beautiful scenery watching the gas gauge and driving on the edge of my seat.
