Feel That Temperature Rising….

This morning began with an early 4:30 am wake up to beat the heat. The team enjoyed a great breakfast of cereal, yogurt, and fruit to start off the day right, thanks to the Eisenberg family and to the members of Carlin United Methodist Church. After we waved goodbye to an amazing stay over and pastor in Carlin, Nevada, we set out on our 103 mile ride. Teams were eager to keep moving and drink as much water as possible.

Around mile 80, when everyone was hitting a wall and getting quite hot, we were excited to stumble on a convenience store and bar in Golconda, NV.

It was great talking with the people there. They generously shared Gatorade, their air conditioning and ice-cold water. It was just what we needed to make it the last 20 miles to our stay over in Winnemucca. We thank the United Methodist Church in Winnamucca for letting us stay the night and the local soup kitchen for kindly donating hotdogs, beans, pasta salad, and chips for our dinner.

Though the days are long and hot, we are really enjoying our time in Nevada, meeting great people and making the most of our last few days on the road.
