We arrived today in Lovelock, Nevada (you could also refer to it as the middle of nowhere Nevada). We rode about 75 miles today on the Interstate 80E - which was a lot of highway riding. The scenary was beautiful and I rode a lot of it alone since the cars were so loud and you couldn't talk with anyone with the strong winds. I put on sunscreen three times today but still got burnt on my face, though I think it is wind burn. The weather has been nice - mid-70s across Nevada is good. The road was quite flat and we had a nice country road for the last 12 miles and I had some good companions to chat along the last section. I arrived in Lovelock about 2pm and cleaned my bike, did my meditation, and hung out with everyone and did laundry. We had some good conversations over beers and pretzels --- oh the life on the road! It couldn't be better :) We had a group discussion about pacelines, a nice dinner at Sturgeon's and now we are all getting ready for bedtime (or reading or what not). I found the only two postcards in Lovelock to mail to my neice and nephew... small towns are so funny. Off we go to Winnemucca tomorrow and there is suppose to be a town festival happening - yipee.
Its amazing how times flies through the days - sometimes we get in as early as 1 or 2pm and by the time we get showered, maybe take a nap, do laundry, clean our bikes, or something, it is already time for our route rap and then dinner. However, I never feel rushed... we have enough time to do everything, which is nice and really relaxing - I guess that is what vacation is all about :)
