In todays ride we crossed four passes. The last and highest was Robinson Pass. after that it was a long down hill finish in Ely. Tomorrow Pete and Susan will sag our gear one more time to Baker. From Baker we enter Utah and will not have internet access for three or four days. We will not be able to post but we will be thinking of all our friends and family. To those who have been making comments here we thank you. We have enjoyed this connection with you all very much. Keep those comments coming.

Eureka to Ely
Our first day without a cloud in the sky and some super assistance at the same time. Since Bill is ending the trip at the Nevada border, he asked some good friends, Peter and Susan to pick him up. However, they were enthused about providing some support to the trip and so they came two days early. Today they loaded up Bill's Honda with all our gear and we made the 78 mile trip unloaded. Below is John from San Francisco with Belinda, Pete and Susan after the car was loaded with 16 panniers, the dog cart, the dog, and all the camping gear. Later in the day, Pete and Susan showed up with a gourmet lunch much to our surprise and delight.
