Day 53

112 miles.  Austin to Fallon.   I made a big push today so that I could meet my folks in Fallon.  I thought I had been riding in the desert before but today I got to the real desert.  All I saw was sand and rocks for several hours.  I had some nice folks from California  pull up next to me and asked if I wanted some ice water.  They stopped and gave me a liter of water and a cold fresh peach.  More trail magic.  I followed the old pony express trail for a while today.  I will be staying with my folks for the next three nights.
