Wow Chris! What a tough way to finish the trip.

We were cruising down I-80 and saw a tow truck with a red truck and a and orange 40 on it. I groaned when I saw that it was yours. So sorry that you broke down again, but I am glad that you finally made it home safely.

We pulled into Wendover at 2:00 am Monday morning and made it home just before 11:00 pm Monday night. No problems just tired of driving.

Yeah, I saw you, Loren. Had to laugh. It was pretty cool that you guys were all behind us. Neil managed to get most of his stuff hauled home by Greg and himself by Mike, after the truck broke down. Glad we all made it through in one piece.

So who else thinks Chris should change his name to "Knuckles"

I don't know, that's awfully similar to "Canuck"

Sorry to hear it, Chris. Glad you're home now.

We arrived at Jeff's house about 9:30 p.m. Monday night. I was home by 10. The route on Hwy 50 was breath-taking, and there was hardly any traffic. I highly recommend it. The shirtless horseshoes in Fallon, NV were a highlight as well -- if you're looking for the horseshoe pits, they're in a park next to the baseball field on Maine Street a few blocks north of Hwy 50: satellite view.

I found a more recent satellite view

You can even spot Bella, the homeless guy with his shopping cart, and the green and black 80s parked

Nice!


Now you'll just have to make the grass on the field look better.

That's funny, Jeff.. I think the bellies were a little bigger though.


Chris, glad you made it home!
