Friday October 7, 2022 Rocky roads in the Nevada Desert
Four wheeling day
We broke camp here around 10 and got on the road.
We started off on a real good road and were making good time. Nice ranch coming up on the left.
They had some of everything there as a ranch should.
We stopped at this spot to have a look at this mud flat by the road.
And we passed by this burro standing by the road by itself. It watched us as we drove on by.
The road was getting narrower, but was still in good shape for making time.
Another place along the route, out in the middle of no where and the road was soon to get real rocky.
The rest of the day things got real rocky and bumpy
The rest of the day was spent going real slow to get over the rocky road. First gear, low range, mostly idling along as that was as fast as we could go. Very bumpy road for most of the rest of this road. It was crossing over the mountains.
The road continued like this.
Not in a hurry
And this. We weren’t making much time but it was ok, as we weren’t in any hurry.
Marty, in back of me had to make a stop here to put a band aid on his elbow as the rocks on the road tend to tear the steering wheel out of one’s hands.
We continued on and were getting tired out so stopped here for a much needed break and some lunch.
We continued on and this one was a rough one to get up, bouncy bounce. Just staying in the seat was tough.
Camp for the night
The road finally got a bit better and we were really beat so stopped in this nice looking spot by a spring for the night, just after 3.
We are enjoying going over these rough roads and the weather is about perfect.
We will continue on tomorrow on some better roads and then hit another rough one I think.
