    ... some of the 'voices' coming through the walls. I don't mean to pick on the place, but one pillow case had either blood or chocolate stains on it. I pretended it was only chocolate, but used my mascot dog Tanny as a pillow instead. Even he wanted to leave the room and sleep outside like we always do because, in his words, this motel "made him feel itchy".

    They still have active mines in Ely on an industrial scale. I have ...

Reminds us of stretches of the Baja Penninsula highway, where there's no gas stations for hundreds of miles, literally.

    ... by the Goshute war parties and eventually they were both burn't down and the station keepers had been killed. But, the Pony Express riders kept on riding.

    While riding thru the canyon the wild roses were in full bloom and the canyon smelled soooooo good. We were surprised by a rattlesnake on our way to the gravesites. Luckily he was just as afraid and went quickly in the opposite direction.

    Our crews were patiently ...
