Baker, NV

A lot of my readers will know the Border Inn near Baker, on the NV/UT border. It’s a shitty little gas/motel/store/rv park in a crappy-looking desert. But it’s a good launch spot to go half way across Utah tomorrow, a very uninteresting drive.

The drives have been long through the deserts, but the weather has been excellent (freezing at 6000′ this morning) and no dust. Clear and sunny. Very light traffic.

The truck is running well. Going over the cordoroy of mountains in Nevada, the truck decided to climb the hills at 5500 rpm, not me. But it was at 50mph, not what I would have done. Sometimes she automatically goes into downhill engine-breaking which is great, but other times I have to signal her like my old truck. All is good.
