Driving across California, some 6,000 miles from home, ensconced in a pale blue Chrysler Town&Country minivan is not the time to be engaging in a bout of crippling self-doubt. But it becomes clear, in conversation with photographer Justin, that we have committed ourselves to a trip across the world to drive a car nobody has ever heard of, in a place miles from anywhere, across an inhospitable national park, on the basis of a website and several late-night emails. Though this sounds like the definition of a spirit of adventure, there is also the niggling worry that we will arrive in Palm Springs to find... nothing.
