Amargosa Valley, Nevada: May 28, 2014

Biggest case of false advertising I've ever seen!

We are embarking on our Summer 2014 Mountain Biking & Beer Drinking Tour. Amargosa Valley is kind of a backdoor entrance to Death Valley. A poor man’s Beatty. The only thing we are doing here is having a few beers, eating dinner in the Airstream, sleeping, getting up, and getting out of here.

The focus of the trip is Durango, Colorado, but there will be many stops before and after. At 5pm this evening it was 97 degrees and very windy. Originally we were going to boon dock, but quickly decided a full hook up site would be much smarter, so we could run our air conditioning. So here we are at Amargosa Valley RV Park.

Nice drive today. This is the back side of Boundary, the highest peak in Nevada. That's Boundary on the right and Montgomery on the left, which is actually in California.

The road goes on forever (without a shoulder) and the party never ends.

Bust out your maps, this is where we are, the corner of 95 and 373.

The Euros must go apeshit over this place. What's more American then the Bunny Ranch Brothel, Hot Sauce, Souvenirs, and Aliens?

Poor Sara. Last week she got bit by an off leash dog. The kicker is it was right in front of Mammoth Pets, and the owner's dog!
