I’m not joking, I did nothing too constructive today, not even take any photos. I was going to set off from Salt Lake until the bad weather hit late morning and was forecast to be even worse through the afternoon and evening. I’m not much for being stuck in hail and lightning storms.
Instead I looked at the route I was taking towards San Francisco, and decided to change it. I’ll now be taking Route 6 south towards Delta and then take Route 50 west to Carson City. The main reason being that the route Google suggested was void of main roads. I can’t take the risk of being broken down on a mountain with no cars passing any time soon.
Now I just have to prepare myself for crossing the “Loneliest Road” in the USA – Route 50. This will be a big test as the places to fill up water (let alone eat) can be up to 89 miles apart. Bring on the desert. And maybe some dessert at the end of it.
