    Haha, I eventually caught on due to your tip off.
    Thank you again @rjnutt for dinner and allowing me to tag along on your guy trip. It was a fun and really loud race.

    Sunday morning the plan was to have my wife meet us in Beatty NV. Rjnutt and I would ride some parts of the NVBDR and other dirt bits. My wife took off in the truck and Rob and I gassed up and slabbed it up to Pahrump NV. In Pahrump we jumped onto the dirt roads.

    Leaving Las Vegas

    We made our way up to and around Big Dune just south of Beatty. Then we took Secret Pass up and over into Beatty. This was a cool section of the NVBDR.

    Into Beatty NV my wife was waiting at the Space Station RV park.

    We had arrived in Beatty around 2PM. Rob and I had a snack while he decided what he wanted to do, Stay the night or push on for home. He had pressing things to attend to at home and if he left soon he could be home around 8PM. So that's what he did. Rob headed for home, making it without issue other than it got very cold and windy. It was in the 30s by the time he made it to Goldfield. Marcia and I stayed the night in Beatty. We had planned to spend a few days in June and Gull lakes for our anniversary. We would leave the next morning.

    Next morning my wife and I fueled up in Beatty NV. There was a group of grey hairs that took over the station.

    I hit a few dirt sections along the way meeting up with her in Tonopah for lunch. Then we followed each other into June Lake CA

    Nice report and ride but I take issue about the comment of the "grey hairs taking over the station".

    I resemble that remark and some day you will too.

    @rickbt no disrespect intended I was glad to see older guys out on their bikes and trikes. They had some smart comments about how tall my bike was and how short I am and miracles occurring getting off and on said bike. Sarcasm runs deep in the older generation
