srive1 replied to wajames's topic in Area Ralliesto Manholt in Galveston, Texas Unfortunately you have misjudged the geography. The Riverside County Fairgrounds for the Viva Las Vegas event are 145 miles from Los Angeles, 30 miles east of Palm Springs. Indio is a great place without excessive traffic. Coming west on I-10 is an easy drive without hitting any of the Los Angeles boon-doggles. Weather for January is typically 70 to 75 degrees daily and 50 to 60 at night. Occasionally the temp gets down to 40 and I believe that twice in the last ten years it has been as low as 30.
