Fallon, NV Nov 2015

From Sand Hallow, UT to Fallon, NV along the Extraterrestrial Highway 357, and "Whew" I wasn't abducted.

While I was a little "Foggy/Hazy" as soon as I got on it, I still can't explain why it took some 12-hrs just to do 98-miles.. hmmm...  ooOOOWWwweeeeuuuuu... heheh,  got into Fallon RV Park at night again, sigh, don't like doing that, but...

Fallon RV Park may not be the prettiest RV site, but it certainly is the most functional in that it has cheap fuel, clean shower/laundry, full hook ups, Propane, mini-mart well stocked, cable TV and new concrete pads, so it's a good spot comparatively speaking.

Next day was laundry, fueling up an getting ready to hit the boonies in dry camping (which I just came from at Sand Hollow, UT (below).Friend Jason and Spouse Robin (a little later)  took me to a "Secret Spot" in Wilson Canyon.  Right on the river there, after a short dirt road.

We got there and I, of course, hit the only Mud Hole there, filling up the Dually's (tires & Rims) with mud.  When heading out at the end, it was like i was driving through a Mud Fight.

Got to the site, off loaded buggies, positioned campers just in time for nightfall.

Next day, still chilly out, started out around 11am riding about.

Trails were all over the place and getting, A-hem, "Lost" would be easy, getting separated was even "Easier" as I was able to prove...  (much like the 'Buddy' system in diving aka, same ocean, same day) but from flat to sand stream bed, which were the best, to blazing a trail up a hill in shrubs and snow.  As Jason said, "for every trail you seen, you've missed 2 more"

We were stopped by a falling tree and no chain saws.(and yes, it's on the Wish List)

After riding for 2 days, a good "Happy Hour" was provided by my "Ms RITA" blender.  With a good fire, weather and all was good.

It was a great trip, thanks to Jason and Robin, it was fun to get out there and Jason, coaching me in the nuances of "Boon Dock Camping" with the Fox. (he has the same model and 10 yrs of experience)

Thanks to both, and then off to HorsFalls, OR for the UTV Thanksgiving Take Over or something like that.  Riding the dunes just north of North Bend (Coos Bay), OR.
