I had to make a banzai run from OC to Havi to get my truck from Vaca home ... I never take Rice Rd cuz my wife doesn’t like it ... used to make our cat throw up too ... but anyway ... I jammed out there by myself turned around and came back ... so now I’m on Rice Road ... just chilling and I get to the stop sign halfway between... its dark about 7pm ... pulled over to take a break ... no traffic ... no lights ... no sound ... but zillions and zillions of stars ... I was blown away ... I hadn’t seen stars like that in 30 years ... so quiet and I could see way out into the desert cuz it was bright ... I called my buddy who does the Adventure bike riding to Death Valley all the time ... and told him “now” I can appreciate all his “stars over beers “ stories ... so anyway ... YES .. u can see stars like we could when we were kids ... sometime when u have a chance do take Rice Rd at night and just pull over and look up ... geez ... so cool.
