An easy day on US-93 northbound through Nevada. It is amazing what a good job Nevada does with their roads. We are safe and warmer in Mountain Home ID tonight. More Nevada mountain scenery.
These roads are not exactly ideal for motorcycles.
This picture was taken the morning of day 4, welcome sunshine but the temperature is just above freezing, burrrrrrrrrrrrr! On the upside look at that RV site, now that is a pull-thru. There are several feet behind the Jeep and in front of the coach too. The pavement is dead on level and there is 20ft of lawn between each pad, wish all of the RV Park industry could see this. Kudos to Mountain Home RV Park in MH Idaho.
The road less traveled, less drama too. The scenery is not what generally comes to mind when I think of Nevada, and in a good way. Today was smooth and the climate has changed. Yesterday it was in the low 90s and today, from a morning start in the 70s, it rose briefly. Then it began to decline and about 25 miles from Ely NV it dropped from the 50s into the 30s and then rose to the 40s again. Still a good days travel.
It has been interesting, forgot how bad California is at maintaining their roads, then there is the wind which tried to rip the slide-out topper off the side as we approached Boulder City NV. With help from Scott we secured it for the remainder of the day. If the wind keeps up in the morning I'll have to tie it off again.
So it begins, we need more storage space and a new park resident shows up with a shed that won't fit his site; we make an offer and find a buyer for our shed. New guy has a shed built on his site. We unload our shed, placing all our GVS under the awning, to and move it to make room for the next shed.
A short ride and a couple of turns followed by a safe landing. Once the new shed is loaded with all his the GVS we will execute stage two, stay tuned.
When we first started out on the road, we kept kind of a diary of where we went and what we saw. We thought it might be fun to take our diary to the next level. We hope our family and friends will enjoy it and it will help them to keep track of where the heck we are!
We are retired and lived in our motorhome from 2005-2012. Dave is retired from the Federal Government and I am just retired.
Dave rides his Harley and I knit,spin and dye fiber. We have two great kids, one on either side of the country. Our daughter is on the West Coast, and our son and his wife are on the east coast. We try to divide our time between the two but probably fail.
