Don't know what help she needs exactly but if she needs help finding good camping spots, transportation, food, favors, etc.. I would be more than happy to lend a hand. I would tell her not to worry about going to Southern California, just stay North of Santa Barbara and she'll be all good. SoCal's great and all but not as 'book worthy' as it is up North. Also have family in Phoenix, I know of some cool Ghost Towns, the town of Quartzite is a nice lil gem too. I'm jealous of her journey it's been a while since I did that myself and it made me the person I am today and I'm very grateful for that.
Thank you Tim. I shall see whats up with her.
