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.
