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.
