Day 49

83 miles.  Milford, Utah to Baker, Nevada.  I reached my 8th state and my 4th time zone today.  Last night the rain, lightning and wind got cranked up to full.volume.  I pitched my tarp low and stayed dry.  If the weather had kept up this morning I would have taken the day off.  It was cool and calm when I started.  I had three passes to cross and it was slow going.from the beginning.  I only made 15 miles in the first 2 hours.  After crossing the first pass I entered a massive valley.  I could see the entire desent and the next pass 20 miles ahead.  After crossing the last pass a huge tailwind started to blow.  I rode the last 32 miles in less than an hour and a half.  Baker is a shabby little town that has the bare minimum of services.   I'm in a dingy little motel for the night. 


  1. Can't believe you're in Nevada!! That is so unbelieveable!!! Keep 'um turnin'!! xoxo

  2. Oh, Tom.....That looks like such a lonely road! No worry about traffic, huh? Glad you are nearing the end of your travels and that you are safe. Keep up the good work.

  3. Mark me down as SAD "you are nearing the end of your travels."

    photos are great. keep 'em coming.

  4. Not to worry. I still have hundreds of miles to go.
