The day started off a little chilly, however once the sun completely rose, it was a beautiful day for a bike ride.
It was a day of no services, so I trolled the route making sure all the riders had enough water. The scenery was/is gorgeous, but there is no civilization for as far as the eye can see.
Very 'Breaking Bad'....was a comment made about our accommodations last night in Middlegate Station and I have to say it is a very fitting description.
I passed numerous historical signs on the route today. It was very interesting...the impact of the Pony Express, mining and farming.

The Brits have introduced us to some new words that I think will fit in quite well in our normal vocabulary...the first is Whinging and the second is Yob. To Whing is to whine or complain and a Yob is a hooligan or a lout. I am sure I can use these words very successfully in daily conversation.
Tomorrow we are off to Eureka, NV.
