Checking out the burn scare from the "rim fire"
Thursday, May 28, 2015
We hit the road south from Niagara Springs feeling pretty... damn... good. Either the hangovers hadn't caught us yet, or the feeling of sunshine masked the booze from the previous night.
The farmland quickly turned back into high desert as we crossed through a couple mountain passes still covered in snow.
Finally on the 80, we turned back west for the first time of the trip. First nights destination was Winnemucca, but I ended up burning out my ignition module on the shovel. Not to worry, we brought points... but forgot a points backing plate. Shit.
Peg pushed the last 25 miles into town, where Gus, forced by the chopper gods, came and got me. Thanks again brother! The following morning, Sonora was in our sights. The final leg, and the only day with a majority of sunshine! Oh well, great trip. Rain or shine.

Our usual timeline got us on the road in the sun, but with almost 200 miles to go, the weather on the horizon looked a little different.
But our fearless guide New York Donny, got us to the campsite without our rain suits on. Just a little muddy for a weekend of good food and good party!
