Nevada is a rather large state. And it has a rather small population. That means you can drive for hundreds of miles without seeing more than a few houses or people. It was getting boring, so we stopped in Ely to see what is going on. Turns out they have this cool train museum, and they have a functioning locomotive mechanic shop. We even got to jibber jabber with the main mechanic on hand. Pretty neat.
Now for the fun part…. we are headed south to Groom Lake, Area 51, and the tiny hamlet of Rachel NV!
