The production values on this episode, utilizing an abandoned mine in the California desert, rate far above the usual studio sets typical of this series. I do think the long drive in Pete's convertible under the desert sun with the top down may have strained credulity a bit, especially with the passengers dark suit and tie, but as the early morning pit stop for gas may ameliorate this concern for heat, the episode does not really give a time-line for the trip.
The real surprise, however, was the casting of Gordon Oliver in a critical role. Mr. Oliver was in fact the executive producer for all 114 episodes of the series, while also producing many popular shows of this period. I guess it was a busman's holiday for him.
Otherwise, I agree with the previous reviewers comments as to this episode.
