Dear folks,

The blog has been updated to now cover from Truckee to Ruth.

The next installments will be dedicated to the most interesting portion of the LHW, at least to me, that section between Ely and Salt Lake City, where the road tried desperately to avoid the salt flats.

Grover,

As always, a really nice report. I take it that Dale Southern is our DaleS.

(Note: At the time I write this a couple of the last photos in your blog on this topic are not coming up.)

You mention that the ranch manager at Moorman's is providing pointers to some "archives." Do you mean....some "artifacts,".... or what?

Good report again, Grover. Can't wait for the rest of your travels.

I should be near Hwy 50 in July or Aug.

Re Moorman Ranch, I mean archival material, probably written although not necessarily so. I should have said "leads to archives" and I also received contact information to one of the last survivors of the Moorman family. Research to follow.

KMZ and KML files of this topic


Say folks, I have a file consisting of all of my waypoints in Google Earth KMZ and KML file format. If anyone would like to play with them and give me feedback, just send an email to groverc@me.com and I'll send the files.
