Across Nevada On US50
Today, Friday the 21st, I left Verdi NV after staying at the Boomtown Casino. A nice room for 40 dollars. Anyways, I got on I80 until I hit Alt-US50 and followed that to US50 and headed East across the whole state of Nevada. I ended my day in Ely Nv at the Motel 6. I've stayed here before with my riding buddy Erik. It is surprising How closely US50 follows routes of a bygone era. It was a very nice day to ride. It started in the 60's and it didn't hit 90 until the 200 mile mark, so I broke out the cool vest for the last 150 miles. The temp never did get above 92. There was still the haze in the air for most of the ride today from all the fires, as I've mentioned in previous posts. I tried to get alot of pictures today of the history of the area and such. I have passed a few museums that would be fun to explore on the next trip out here.
