We're in Ely, which is not pronounced like you'd expect. It was an 80 mile day with no services (but we didn't see a "Next Gas 80 miles" sign). There was absolutely nothing between Eureka and Ely, except 5 bikers and three passes. We totally rocked today - we got out of camp quickly and hammered out the uphills like John Henry hammers railroad ties. Unfortunately, we only have 15 minutes on the computer here at the KOA so this is all you get. Tomorrow we are headed to Baker, only four miles from the Utah border! Nevada has been long, straight, and beautiful, just like Alex. Until next time, Russ, Jen, Sarah, Dan, and Alex.
