LOCATION: Battle Mountain, Nevada - in north central part of state
WEATHER: Hot. High 90. Mostly sunny, pretty light clouds
We left our Harvest Host winery site in the early morning, then drove to a rest stop for breakfast. We drove by interesting lava fields and signs for fossil museums. There were a lot of springs flowing from the mountains.
We had planned to stay another day in Idaho at another Harvest Host winery, but we hadn't heard back from the host. We arrived at a fork in the road where we had to decide whether to stay in Idaho or go south to Nevada. We went south, and immediatly lost cell service. Unfortunately, later we learned that there was indeed vacancy at the winery, but the owner couldn't reach us due to the lack of cell service.
Oh well - on to Nevada. We are headed toward Yosemite National Park and have to travel south to get there. We drove through 200 miles of sheer nothingness. No gas, cell service, food, motels - nothing but a few sad-looking Indian reservations.
We ended up here in Battle Mountain. Nothing special but the RV site has everything we need. It was good to catch up with laundry and showers. We did some online research on camping at Yosemite and to find other Harvest Hosts on our upcoming routes. It was a 260-mile day. This is our route so far on this trip, excluding our detour to Singapore and Thailand....
The theme of the day was eating the bounty of our Harvest Host overnight stays. This was especially important due to our naughty refrigerator. For breakfast, we had salmon cakes from last night's salmon. Lunch was prime beef sandwiches, leftover from last night, too. Then, for dinner tonight we had sauteed veg from the Harvest Host farm with one of last night's potatoes. A tomato salad was on the menu, too, with the freshest tomato we have ever eaten. Unfortunately, we didn't finish everything, and tomorrow will be round 3 of the leftovers.
The sunset over the other RVs was beautiful...
