June 27th...Ely, NV

Hey everyone,

We are back to civilization, somewhat at least. The population here is 4000 as opposed to 400 in the last town. Nevada has been the challenging part of the trip. We got in late last evening after an 8hr and 84mile ride. It is very hot out here in the desert from about 10am to 5pm. Before 10am and after 5pm it is rather pleasant. I promise that monday or tuesday we will have all of the days through nevada up for you to read. I am sitting at the local library here and it is not really conducive to me loading pictures and writing books. I look forward to Utah because it is supposed to be a better ride and there will be more people to talk to. I am supposed to meet with the newspaper here and as i said before that should all start to snowball. I was informed this morning that some more donations have come in by way of mail and we are making progress monetarily and on the awareness end of things. I hope all is well back home. I miss everyone and appreciate all that you have done to make this journey possible!

Hi Zach...
I haven't followed you for a few days, glad you are still peddling away! I see you are heading towards Las Vegas...Try to see Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon or the Vally of Fire while you are out that way...
Utah is a lovely state, I'm sure you will enjoy it!
Best Wishes & God Bless,
