I got an early start and took the back roads to the Ghost town of Bodie. Very interesting story, you can read about it on the interwebs , I didn’t see any ghosts.
Been a while since gas was 58 cents!
Rest stop in the shade, was a hot ride, I stop and drink some water and pour some on me, I can stay cool for an hour or so before stopping
Some stretches of road are looooong and straight. I is difficult to convey the loneliness felt on these roads that are rarely traveled through these great expanses. The temperature was close too 100.
