My objections to CA are a bit of a dead horse, so I won’t repeat them here. The arctic blast has passed and it’s bearable in NV again.
Google Maps said the fastest route to Tonapah was through Reno, but I went south to see Yosimite. I recently learned from the highest authority that it’s pronounced “Yo-semite”. I forgot to test out my new knowledge on the rangers, but I bet they would be impressed.
BLM land outside Tonapah
I can see the highway from here but can only hear it when semis use their jake brake.
Tonapah sits on 95, and from here I will work my way south with the weather: Rhyolite (a ghost town), Pahrump, Lake Havasu, q-town, etc.
I wanted to be away from “civilization” in the aftermath of the elections. With any luck my 14d stay on this BLM land will be sufficient time for the celebration and/or Civil War 2 (choose your adventure) to blow over. I’d appreciate it if everyone used up all their ammo before I have to return to town for reprovisioning.
Last move I could only drive for about 30 mins before the pirriformis pain started getting to me. On today’s long drive (5 hrs) I stopped for restroom breaks for me and Muffin but experienced no discomfort. Toes are still tingly/numb but no pain. I’m hoping we’ll be able to hike a bit up here.
