Lovelock

Heading east out of Reno the Interstate 80 squeezes through a narrow valley, lush and green, and the Truckee River runs alongside at a steady pace, unconcerned about what’s happening on the road above.

Paid my taxes today… And the range of my adventure has become more defined!

I-80Heading east out of Reno the Interstate 80 squeezes through a narrow valley, lush and green, and the Truckee River runs alongside at a steady pace, unconcerned about what’s happening on the road above. The river’s width is about the same as the two lanes I’m traveling on. I think about the early frontiersmen and what they saw: Carson, Houston, Crockett, they all must have passed this way – and no doubt they felt the same pleasure I do now.

Further down the road comes Exit 105 for Lovelock. There’s nothing there, really, a couple of broken down casinos and a few gas stations. A necessary stop if you have a short range motorcycle like I do. And your luck’s with you if you do, because you might then have lunch at La Casita.

This plate once contained the best asada, rice, and cheese, burrito I've ever eaten.
