    In our crowded little island, it's really difficult to imagine that kind of SPACE! Your pics are very evocative - I would love to ride in that country.

    Thanks for the report and excellent photographs.

    I think of this report each time I ride from Beatty to Tonopah or Beatty to Vegas. I look at the trails & roads out there & wonder which ones you rode.:bow

    I met some of those guys that were part of the race that left all the ruts. They stolled in to restaurants like they were gods & acted like they should get immediate service because they were in a hurry. I think the whole thing left the locals with a strong dislike for city people who plow through their little towns with such disrepect.

    Its just my opinion but I think when guys like you cruise thru & visit & shoot the bull it kinda redeems the off-road community. We need more of these type of reports. I like the human interaction as well as the geo stuff.

    Again..... fine job!:thumb :thumb

    Nice RR, recognize a lot of those places. That fenced dry lake is a bombing range I believe, some defense contractors had a couple jets and they would test systems out there.
