here's Lisa in the stretch between California City (TS#1) to Trona (TS#2). This section is where the heat blasts hardest, apparently. Look at a topographical map, and you'll see long expanses of flat desert. (In fact, this route passes the Honda "Proving Center"). But maps are deceptive, as they don't show the phenomenon known as "Desert Rollers".
Lisa & Crew blasted through the rollers and hit the Trona Time Station at 9 hours and 41 minutes.
Now on to Lisa's home-away-from-home: Furnace Creek.
