I guess I didn't realize how much nothing was between Portland and Winnemucca.... I had planned to stop and let Joel take his driving shift and get a late lunch around 3:00. There was nothing but desert around us at 3:00, so I kept driving. We stopped in Hines for some much needed gas and food. I spotted a little junk store across the street from the restaurant and wanted to check it out. It was closed, but it had a neat old sign and some other things to take photos of outside.
The sun was in and out of the clouds.
We got to Winnemucca at around 9:30. We made pretty good time. We stopped at a Best Western to see about a room, and there were none. There were no hotel rooms to speak of in all of Winnemucca. They had an event going on. I guess I should have planned a place to stay a little better too. Oh well. We decided to find some real food and keep going is was only 116 miles to Fallon.
|Marilyn thought it was pretty funny we didn't have a place to stay....|
Hope all is well with you. I should be able to post tonight. Depending on the WiFi in Vegas. Onward Only 400 miles to Vegas!
