Battle Mountain - On our way (part two)

This morning, after breakfast, we loaded everything in the car again and were off to Barnes and Noble. When you like books/reading, this is the place to be. Then on to REI, an outdoor sports shop with a wide range of products. Scheels was the last stop; this is the shop with the Ferris Wheel. On the parking lot outside was a RV-show. We had seen those big mobile homes more often, but never from the inside. Well: Been there, done that. Luxury houses on wheels with travertin on the floor, luxury kitchen, washing machine and dryer. A lot different from camping with a small tent.

We stopped at Fuddruckers for a big hamburger and continued to Battle Mountain. We arrived around 17.20 hours. We unpacked the car and went for a dip in the swimming pool. It is relatively quiet around here. We already encountered Al and Alice, as well as Eric Ware, John Jackstone, Dave Larrington, Craig Johnsons, Larry Lem, Tom Amick, Chris Broome and Ben Goodall and his wife Yol. We did see Georgy, but haven't spoken with him yet.

Now it is time for us to get some sleep. Tomorrow we will put the bike back together again.
