Elko, Nevada Friday, Feb 26, 2010

We drove through the Great Salt Lake, and did not realize that there would be 75 miles with no gas stations! We were 30 miles away from a gas station when we were seriously running low on gas.  We had visions of having to get a ride to get gas by hitching a ride from some benevelent stranger! Dave even drafted behind a double semi to try to save what little gas we had.  We had never seen the gas gage dip so low! 

We did make it to the gas station, and we were SO relieved!!

Arrived in Elko, NV around 8 pm, grabbed a fast food dinner, and crashed! 

We are looking forward to arriving in the Sacramento area around 2 pm.
